John Black Lee-designed Lee House 1 in New Canaan, Connecticut

Such an amazing piece of architecture. Hard to believe that the John Black Lee-designed Lee House 1 in New Canaan, Connecticut dates back to 1952. This would be radical architecture in 2017. But in 1952, this place must have looked like an alien spacecraft landing in the woods. I think it still looks like that […]

Renovation project: 1960s E.H. Paul-designed midcentury modern property in Greenwich, Connecticut, USA

On the market: The Modern Barn in Lyme, Connecticut, USA

The word ‘barn’ usually conjures up something rural, ancient and generally wood-based. Not so The Modern Barn in Lyme, Connecticut, USA. Ok, it looks pretty rural, not least because you have 7.69 acres of meadowland to play with, but ancient it most certainly isn’t. This place actually dates from 1992. Not sure there is a […]

On the market: 1960s Frank Lloyd Wright-inspired property in Weston, Connecticut, USA

This isn’t by the architect, but this is a 1960s Frank Lloyd Wright-inspired property in Weston, Connecticut, USA. Why? Well his inspiration is certainly here. The house dates from 1965, the work of Allan J. Gelbin, who happened to be an apprentice to Frank Lloyd Wright and judging by this, someone who shared his Usonian […]

Yes, we know it is ridiculously expensive. But that doesn’t mean we can’t lust after the wonderful 1950s Philip Johnson-designed Wiley House in New Canaan, Connecticut, USA. An iconic design, dating back to 1952 would you believe and still a house that packs a punch visually. Part of that is perhaps because money has been […]
