Design draws upon famed architect’s principles of organic architecture
Easton, Conn. (July 23, 2014) — William Pitt Sotheby’s International Realty announced that the company has just listed a stone, stucco and steel residence in Easton, Conn. that is inspired by and reminiscent of “Fallingwater,” one of famed architect Frank Lloyd Wright’s most celebrated homes. Southport agent Laura Sydney-Pulton has the listing, which is offered at $1,840,000.
The design of the contemporary home utilizes Wright’s principles of organic architecture, integrating the residence within its natural surroundings and creating harmony between the building materials and the environment. Walls of glass bring in views of the outdoors, while seven terraces draw visitors outside. Featuring a three-story glass atrium, the residence is defined by strong horizontal lines throughout.
Built in 2003, the home has 9,686 square feet of living space with six bedrooms, most on the lower level, and nine and a half baths. With 13 rooms in total, the residence also features six fireplaces, soaring vaulted ceilings and an attached six-car garage. The home resides on 9.33 acres with a gunite swimming pool and spa.
“This spectacular residence brings the drama and beauty of Wright’s greatest masterpiece, as well as a serene and wholly original tree house-style ambiance,” said Sydney-Pulton. “The retreat is completely private and feels as though it’s a world away, even as its location on the Fairfield line provides easy access to shopping, transportation and universities. I am excited to market such a remarkable home.”
