Inside a Midcentury Gem in New Canaan by Architect Eliot Noyes

An Eliot Noyes-designed Midcentury Modern home is on the market for $7.995 million in New Canaan,Midcentury modern enthusiasts are abuzz about a listing built by Harvard Five architect Eliot Noyes in 1950, one of his earliest homes. Noyes was wide-ranging in his design purview, with credits that include IBM’s iconic Selectric typewriter, Mobil gas stations and a handful of houses in New Canaan, where he made his home. The pool terrace is an excellent place to start a tour of the Brown House, as it’s called. The sleek, minimalist pool is lined on one side with a stone wall, cascading with vegetation. The Noyes-designed pool house has been restored, and there’s also a cabana, now used as guest quarters. The main house is swell as well, constructed of glass walls, with renovations and additions by architect Joeb Moore and builder Dave Prutting, who made it his home. Fatou Niang and Inger Stringfellow, of William Pitt Sotheby’s International Realty, share the $7,995,000 listing.
