Love midcentury style? Check out this five-bedroom, two-and-a-half-bath home in Weston, Connecticut. Designed and built in 1965 by architect Allan Gelbin, the home follows Frank Lloyd Wright’s theories on organic architecture. Gelbin was an apprentice to Wright at Taliesin East in Spring Green, Wisconsin, from 1949-1953, before establishing his own practice in 1957 in Connecticut.

The focal point of the design is an expansive living room and dining room that features a stone fireplace. Clerestory windows let in light, while wooden ceiling panels and built-in bookshelves add coziness. Floor-to-ceiling glass windows showcase a wraparound deck and views of the 2.25 acre property, and the master suite also offers panoramic views and access to a terrace.

The home is currently being sold in “as is” condition and the oil tank needs replacing, according to the listing, but other perks include an updated kitchen, radiant heat, a newer roof, and a walk-in closet. 15 Skylark Lane is currently on the market for $625,000.
