A Midcentury Modern Designed by One of the Harvard Five Hits the Market
Eliot noyes was one of the so-called Harvard Five architects who lived and designed homes in New Canaan. Of the 100-odd dwellings built by the “Five,” four are included on the U.S. National Register of Historic Places, the most famous of which is the Philip Johnson Glass House. A Noyes-designed home makes that list, too. And now on the market for the first time in its history is another Noyes creation, built in 1956 with obvious references to the Johnson masterpiece, with its glass walls and modern, open-plan interiors.
Listed for $2.75 million, the one-story dwelling blends indoor and outdoor spaces with courtyards accessed via glass doors, floor-to-ceiling windows and loads of skylights. The 3,692-square-foot renovated interiors offer five bedrooms and five bathrooms and the 4.6-acre grounds feature a pristine cube of a pool house and a pool. Alice Jennings and Amanda Briggs, both of Houlihan Lawrence, share the listing.
