Welcome to Middlebury, where noted architect Joseph Stein introduced the Modernist Movement to this bucolic corner of northwest CT. Trained under Walter Gropius, founder of the Bauhaus School of Design, and educated at the same school of design as the Harvard Five, Stein's belief that his client's lives could be enhanced by the space he designed is evident throughout this mid-century modern. With an eye on the natural contours of the land and an appreciation for the beauty of old-growth trees, Stein sited the home to create a modern form that gently cascades into the woodlands that surround it. The discovery of a unique elbow tree, scenic pond, and seasonal creek inspired floor-to-ceiling window scapes in every room. With repeating window patterns, exceptional materials, and a clear understanding of the needs of a five-person household, Stein delivered a four-bedroom home with two master suites, two stories of living space, and a two-car garage while using interior walls to house extensive closets for storage. With appreciation for the enduring beauty and texture of naturalized perennial gardens outdoor spaces have been framed with dry stacked stone walls, bluestone pathways, and pea gravel gathering spots. The effect is a simply modern and timeless - an enviable escape less than two hours from Manhattan and close to the highly-rated restaurants and shops of the NW corner. First time on the market. Offered with additional acreage under MLS No. 170312487.
