Start 2021 in This Bright New Canaan Modern Now Up for Sale

In search of a new home for the new year? With the real estate market ever on the upswing in Fairfield County, it seems there are endless hidden gems to discover in Connecticut. This New Canaan home at 19 Four Winds Lane is a modern listed with John Dunn of Houlihan Lawrence. Simply nicknamed “Four Winds,” the estate asking $4.895 million certainly seems similar to a chic spa resort with its neutral color palette, soaring ceilings, and fully embraced natural surroundings. It also sits just an hour outside of New York City, melding the tranquility of its atmosphere with an easy city commute.

Set on an approximately 2.5-acre lot, the home was designed and built in 1993 by local architect Judith Larson. The almost 7,000-square-foot spread includes 5 bedrooms, 5 full bathrooms, and 2 half-bathrooms. Clean lines and abundant natural light heighten this sheer spaciousness, creating an environment startling in its bright serenity. An open floorplan allows easy movement between living spaces, with floor-to-ceiling windows throughout blurring the lines between inside and out.

The custom kitchen by Leicht is perhaps the home’s beating heart. Lit by origami lights and anchored by a leathered quartzite island, the space is impossibly sleek. Such a characterization is relevant to Four Winds in its entirety, a wholly consistent exercise in modern elegance.
