A Strikingly Modern New Preston Home Lists for $12.9M
Architect Steven Haas brought a strikingly modern sensibility to a dwelling that loosely evokes the kind of Italian villas you might see lining the shores of Lake Como. The New Preston home, newly listed for $12.9 million, overlooks Lake Waramaug, with indoor and outdoor spaces designed to romance its views onto the water, sky and heavily wooded 11-acre spread. Haas deployed barrel shapes to soften the soaring ceilings, many of them constructed in glass, along with floor-to-ceiling, mahogany-framed window walls throughout both the house and the one-bedroom guesthouse. The four-bedroom main house also offers a solarium, a covered dining pavilion and an expansive deck that runs its entire length. Peter Klemm of Klemm Real Estate has the listing.
