Renovation completed by renowned architect Allen Swerdlowe
Weston, Conn. – September 16, 2015 – William Pitt Sotheby’s International Realty announced today that the firm has listed a dramatic modernist home in the town of Weston, Connecticut. Originally constructed in 1978 by noted local architect Roger Ferris, and substantially remodeled over the past decade by the current owner, architect Allen Swerdlowe of d7architects, the home is represented by Westport agent Barry Katz, and offered at $1,590,000.
Expansive walls of windows flood the interior of this five-bedroom, three and a half-bath home with natural light, creating a sense of engagement with the surrounding landscape of the two-acre property. Clean lines and a nuanced handling of scale and proportion are evident throughout. The high-ceilinged living room features a tall, artfully detailed stone fireplace and a south-facing window wall with large European-style glass doors that slide effortlessly on precision hardware. The central core of the residence includes a sleek, efficient kitchen, meticulously fitted with custom Italian cabinetry, and countertops of Carrera marble and stainless steel. Also on the main floor, the master suite offers a tranquil, enveloping retreat. Upstairs are four additional bedrooms and two full baths.
“The stylish architecture of this unique home creates a magical environment that offers both drama and an intimate coziness,” said Katz. “The residence lends itself equally to world-class entertaining or quiet relaxation. I look forward to sharing its many wonderful features with my clients.”
Allen Swerdlowe, founder of the architectural firm d7architects, has produced an impressive track record of award-winning projects and designs. His works are displayed in numerous collections, including the Museum of Modern Art, the Minneapolis Institute of Art, and the University of Connecticut. He has served as the chairman of New York New Visions (NYNV), the committee that wrote the initial planning guidelines for the reconstruction at Ground Zero, and the founding director of the Brooklyn Bridge Park Conservancy.
