Home transformation embraces surrounding nature
Darien, Conn. (June 1, 2016) — William Pitt Sotheby’s International Realty announced today that the firm has listed a custom-built contemporary residence in Darien, Conn. Architecturally unique to this quintessential New England town, the design was planned by an internationally recognized architectural firm and built by a highly acclaimed custom construction firm. The residence is listed with Darien agent Molly O’Brien Watkins, and offered at $3,395,000.
su11 architecture+design, a Brooklyn-based architecture and design company known for using innovative means of production and unique, customized solutions, designed an entirely new structure to replace the original 1957 ranch-style home. The firm is widely regarded as a leader of its generation, with projects exhibited in venues including the Museum of Modern Art, Walker Art Center and Carnegie Museum of Art. In 2011, renowned construction firm Prutting & Company Custom Builders, LLC, brought the architectural design plans to life with the home’s complete re-construction. Founded in 1975, this pioneering firm has worked with numerous prominent architects, completing hundreds of high-quality projects throughout Fairfield and Westchester Counties. The team’s exceptional craftsmanship, which is specifically known for producing groundbreaking, contemporary homes, has been recognized with many awards over the years including Luxe Magazine’s 2016 Gold List Honoree, two Connecticut Cottages & Gardens Innovation in Design Awards in the categories of Architecture and Builder Recognition, two Moffly Media A-List Awards, the highly acclaimed HOBI Award and more.
This transformed 6,800+ square-foot contemporary residence now offers a thoughtful re-design focusing on entertaining and hospitality. The five-bedroom, four full and two half-bath home, which lies on nearly three acres of private land overlooking a pond, contains ample open space, natural materials and the expansive use of glass embracing the property’s outdoor surroundings and scenic views. Meticulously designed special features include a chef’s kitchen, two offices, a dining room/library, sitting area and living room, both with a fireplace, as well as an adjacent cocktail lounge complete with a custom back-lit bar. The residence additionally offers a master suite with a sitting room and balcony, a private guest/nanny suite, playroom and two laundry rooms.
“The custom design and thought that went into the renovation of this home is remarkable,” said Watkins. “It’s a modern masterpiece, full of unusual features and sleek finishes. Everything about it is one-of-a-kind. The home’s setting additionally offers a sense of tranquility and privacy, yet conveniently resides just moments from the town and public transportation.”
Energy-efficient geothermal heat and a generator complete the residence, ensuring year-round comfort and functionality.
