A Captivating Contemporary Designed by Ulrich Franzen Lists in Greenwich



A Compelling Contemporary Designed by Ulrich Franzen Lists in Greenwich

One of the most compelling contemporaries on the Greenwich market is a house built in 1992 by German architect Ulrich Franzen, who worked for I.M. Pei early in his career and who is known for his penchant for both skywalks and Brutalist styling—and is most famous for designing Hunter College’s campus and the Phillip Morris headquarters, both in New York City.

The Greenwich listing’s drama begins in the front courtyard, a circular affair with a modern fountain at its center. The home’s façade is crowned by a glass-walled atrium with a tree growing inside. The glass-and-metal motif continues with a transparent, two-story turret that serves as the back wall of the main living space. It opens onto a half-moon–shaped pool with its own thoroughly modern fountain. And while throughout the house, the lines are crisp and the surfaces unornamented, there’s plenty of spaces for relaxation, including around the second, indoor, pool; on the Har-Tru tennis court; and in the billiard room or the master suite with its own fireplace. There’s even an indoor ice cream parlor.

Amanda J. Miller of Houlihan Lawrence has the the 7.4-acre listing, priced at $10,000,888.
