Architect Vincent Amore’s Unique Coastal Connecticut Cottage Asks $1.5M

Modernist architect Vincent Amore built this gorgeous Guilford, Connecticut home in 1971 for himself and his family. After decades of enjoyment, Amore is nearing 90 years old and is ready to let someone else cherish it. Listed for the first time ever, the unique house now asks $1.5 million.

A true “tiny home,” the A-frame measures just 1,100 square feet. But it’s built on a quarter-acre promontory on the water’s edge, with unbroken views of Long Island Sound—from the wraparound deck and nearly every room in the house.

Inside, the open-plan main floor centers on a wall of windows and a double-height stone fireplace. There’s also a circular staircase that gives access to the lofty bedroom suite. While there isn’t much room for guests, there’s ample room to peacefully enjoy the water views.

It could easily function as a “third space.” Meaning, a place where one can go that isn’t home or the office, but something completely unique and inspiring. Carol Mancini and Ron Mazzacane of William Pitt Sotheby’s International Realty have the listing on Connecticut’s coast.
