A Rare Connecticut Richard Neutra-Designed Gem Is Up for Sale
The work of Richard Neutra has perhaps never been more widely available. Earlier this month, his Case Study House #20 came on the market in the Pacific Palisades. Case Study House #13 in South Pasadena soon followed. Now three of the iconic architect’s rare designs have listed in July alone, with the third sitting across the country in Stamford, Connecticut. One of just three of Neutra’s creations in the Constitution State, Glen House is asking $4.5 million.
“Just as the Kaufmann House anchors Neutra’s work on the west coast, Glen House holds a similar position on the east coast,” explains the listing, which is held with Rick Distel of Compass. Built in 1959, the home has been extensively restored to maintain its standing as one of midcentury architecture’s most essential entries. Joeb Moore, who lead the restoration process, has won AIA awards for his work reconceiving the interior layout to better reflect Neutra’s original concept. The sleek kitchen now opens to the living spaces for an effortless flow as light floods the home via endless walls of glass and a series of skylights.
While there may be ample glass, the residence feels private. It sits on almost 2.5 acres of land and two wings branch off from the central core. There’s a guest wing with two bedrooms and access to a lower level suite, then a luxurious owner’s wing at the opposite end of the home.
A total of 4 bedrooms and 3.5 bathrooms sit within Glen House’s 4,000 square feet, a remarkable preservation of and expansion on Neutra’s visionary principles.
