Property Offers Integrated Natural Setting and Design
Easton, Conn. – August 6, 2014 – William Pitt Sotheby’s International Realtyannounced today that the firm has listed a custom-designed home located on 13 acres of private land in the town of Easton, Conn. Southport agent Laura Sydney-Pulton has the listing, which is offered at $1,299,000.
The 5,695 square-foot residence was designed by the award-winning architect Allan Dehar, who is known for many notable projects including his collaboration with Frank O. Gehry on the Yale Psychiatric Institute, as well as the redesign of UCONN’s Homer Babbidge Library in addition to the university’s Biology and physics building. Dehar also reconstructed the Yale Medical Library and was elevated to the College of Fellows of the American Institute of Architects (FAIA), the highest honor bestowed on any member of AIA.
The serene Easton home is surrounded by a natural atmosphere both inside and out. Its rural setting boasts multiple gardens, a stream with a waterfall and a pond. In addition, the property’s harmony with nature is brought inside with the rich use of windows and natural materials such as marble, wood and granite. There are ten rooms including a banquet-sized dining room and the living room complete with a fireplace, 9-foot lighted tray ceilings, and hardwood and marble floors. Custom millwork continues throughout the house, with extensive architectural details featuring a columned gallery and clerestory windows. His and her baths, numerous closets, as well as an office and exercise room complete the first-floor master suite.
“Nature lovers will thrive in this unique Connecticut home,” said Pulton. “Its carefully crafted design focuses on incorporating a peaceful, natural setting inside the home, and exudes a true appreciation for the beauty and wonder of Easton’s surrounding nature. The residence offers immense privacy, while still located only minutes from shopping and transportation.”
