A Marcel Breuer-Designed Home in Orange Lists for $1.6M
Hungarian-born Marcel Breuer, one of the Harvard five architects, designed the circa-1951 Donald N. Clark House in Orange. Best known for the original Whitney Museum of American Art in New York City, Breuer built several houses in Fairfield and Litchfield Counties, including two for himself in New Canaan. Just listed for $1.6 million, the Orange home resembles a series of stacked glass-and-stone boxes with carved out spaces for terraces and a handsome covered entryway leading to the front door. The 4,000-square-foot interiors have an artisanal, organic feel. The open-plan living room features an architectural fireplace, wood-paneled ceilings, custom cabinetry and floor-to-ceiling window walls with views over private lawns and gardens. The current owners have dotted the property with pieces of sculpture. The 5.5-acre grounds also offer a tennis court. Barbara Lehrer of Coldwell Banker has the listing.
