Midcentury homes come in all shapes and sizes, and the latest to catch our eye is this five-bedroom, six-bath home in Westport, Connecticut. Built in 1964, the home features a central A-frame with long horizontal wings off each side of the triangle.

The airy house also boasts exposed beams, clerestory windows, and floor-to-ceiling glass. In addition to its midcentury credentials, the home is the enclave of artist Marlene Siff and is filled with oversized, brightly colored paintings and sculptures—all for sale along with the house. Siff’s studio is a wonder: a light filled oasis with 14-foot walls of glass that look out onto the forest-like backyard.

Other perks in the home include a library, billiards room, a glass-surround tower with epic views, and a sunken conversation pit with fireplace. Outside you’ll find a pool, pool house, and tennis court. Interested? 15 Broadview Road is on the market now for $1,900,000.

A living room has two white couches, a round solid coffee table, and a vaulted ceiling with windows on one side.
