A Philip Johnson-Style Darien Modern Lists for $5.5M



In Darien, there’s a for-sale modern that’s as smart as it is beautiful. Built in 2006 in the style of Philip Johnson’s midcentury masterpieces, the 7,500-square-foot home offers eco-friendly features such as solar panels, a high-efficiency heating system that burns biofuel, and an underground cistern for recycling rainwater. That’s the brainy part. As for its beauty, the structure is composed of a series of mahogany-clad boxes that cantilever over the 2.4-acre property, positioned on one of Darien’s highest points to take in dramatic vistas over Long Island Sound. Water views are abundant inside as well—through nine-foot-high glass walls—and are especially fine from the master suite, which also features a private balcony, a fireplace and a sexy and spacious bathroom. It lists for $5,499,000 with Charlett Stevenson and Sara Franzese of Houlihan Lawrence.
