This historic house in New Canaan, Connecticut, by architect Willis N. Mills has been on and off the market for years. Now it’s back with a price cut of $300,000.

Built by Mills for his family, the 1956 residence has undergone a series of restorations and updates and is now listed on the National Register of Historic Places after an extensive rehabilitation by BassamFellows.

Rectangular volumes make up the 4,368-square-foot space, which is characterized by redwood cladding, walls of glass, and soaring double-height ceilings that take in views of the steep and rocky site. The star of the show, of course, is the great room, which cantilevers over the site and comprises a dining area and a remodeled kitchen.

Three bedrooms, a study, and three bathrooms unfurl from there, with an additional bedroom and bathroom located on the lower floor. Each of the rooms enjoys direct access to the nearly two-acre site by way of sliding glass doors. Japanese gardens, a stone pool, and multiple terraces round out the property. Located at 1380 Ponus Ridge, it’s offered at $2.55 million. Perhaps it has languished on the market due to its more famous neighbors, as our first write-up indicated?
