An incredible glass house by Harvard Five architect Eliot Noyes in New Canaan, Connecticut, is on the market for the first time ever. Built in 1965, the single-story residence is characterized by a simple construction of glass and steel and open spaces that represent the best of modernism.

The 3,692-square-foot home takes advantage of its magnificent 4.6 acre-site, framing views and creating indoor-outdoor connections by way of walls of glass and courtyards throughout. Arranged laterally, the flowing floorplan begins with a long entry hallway framed by floor to ceiling windows and topped with skylights. A living room with brick fireplace follows, and this space also boasts glazed walls that look out onto an outdoor living area and a massive lawn.

A large kitchen with what appear to original cabinets, a family room with fireplace, and five bedrooms and five baths round out the main house. White walls (some of it brick) and stone tile floors give it a museum quality, but the large windows and glass doors, many of which open directly onto the grounds, lend it a vibrancy and warmth.

What’s more, there’s even a detached artist’s studio on the premises—a mini glass house of sorts with a central courtyard and sliding glass doors. The listing also notes that there’s a swimming pool. Located at 90 Lambert Road, the property, which could use an extensive restoration, is offered at $2.75 million. Take a look.
