Washington Depot, Conn. (August 8, 2016) — William Pitt Sotheby’s International Realty today announced that the firm has listed an architecturally unique, modern home for $14.9 million, which would set a price record in Washington, Conn., if sold for that amount, according to the CTMLS and CMLS. The property resides in the village of Washington Depot within Washington,. and is listed with Washington Depot agent, Kathryn Clair.
The award-winning, contemporary residence was designed by Gray Organschi Architecture. The 15,000+ square-foot, five-bedroom, six full and two half-bath main house is set on over 70 acres, with a five-acre spring-fed swimming pond. Clad in granite from three local quarries and executed in stone, glass and natural materials, the home features birch slat ceilings, pocket doors, marble baths, windows framed with sustainable harvested teak, sculptural concrete columns gracing both the front and back of the house, lead-coated copper roof, dolomitic limestone and Silk Road sandstone floors. An indoor pool with windows fixed in steel frame opens out to an entertaining patio with outdoor fireplace. This exterior space is set upon a knoll overlooking the pond in an ultra quiet setting.
The property also has a three-bedroom gate house with greenhouse, grass-roofed tennis house, tennis court, pond house, squash court and garaging for seven cars. Trails and stone walls lead up to an architectural folly that was modeled after a Greek temple, offering views of the surrounding Litchfield Hills. Turner hosted many philanthropic events here over the years, with the field in front of the folly accommodating hundreds.
“This residence is an architectural must-see masterpiece,” said Clair. “Hitting the market for the first time, and for a record-breaking price, the home is sure to draw in plenty of much- deserved attention. I am excited to be representing such an extraordinary property in town, and look forward to showcasing its many exquisite features and amenities to interested buyers.”
