Architect Allan Gelbin was an apprentice to Frank Lloyd Wright at Taliesin in Wisconsin before founding his own firm in Connecticut in 1957. One of his many admired homes is this low-slung, circa-1965 modern called Trinkaus House, now on the market for just $650,000. Wright’s influences are felt throughout the 3,000-square- foot dwelling. Gelbin’s choice of stone walls and wooden paneling echoes the nature on view through glass walls and clerestory windows. The common rooms, including the galley-style kitchen that was typical of the day, open on to a wrap-around deck, which overlooks the pool and private, 2.25-acre grounds.
