A Designer’s Midcentury Modern Shines on the Connecticut Market After a Hefty Makeover

In Washington, a midcentury modern was recently renovated by jewelry and interior designer, Sara Brandon, who perfected the open-plan interiors, made an addition, and added the pool. In an Instagram post last year, the designer shared “The project is on solid ledge, so it’s been all about moving mountains.” Buying the neglected property with great potential in 2020, Brandon has finished the substantial makeover and now the home is on the market seeking $2.278 million.

This long, circa-1964 structure is built with walls of glass on both sides, giving the interiors constant sunshine. It’s flanked by lovely landscaping in front and an oversized pool terrace in back, equipped with a fire pit and an outdoor shower.

Inside the 3,370-square-foot dwelling, the dazzling spaces include a loft-like dining room with a fireplace exposed redwood beams and four bedrooms, as well as five bathrooms. Spanning 3+ acres, the property affords sweet privacy, too.

Ira Goldspiel and Steve Pener, both of William Pitt Sotheby’s International Realty, hold the listing, which first listed in May for $2.695 million.
