A Marvelous Midcentury Modern Comes onto the Market in Connecticut



Washington Home

Here’s a deal for buyers who are willing to wait for their midcentury masterpiece. The Corwin House, built in 1955 by architect Richard Neutra, is offered with the stipulation that Betty Corwin, its 90-year-old resident, is allowed to live out her days at home. In the spirit of “good things come to those who wait,” a pledge of $2.7 million options the Weston house, locking in that price—along with the home’s abundance of original features and fixtures. There are walls of glass with views onto the Saugatuck River, loads of custom, built-in furnishings, and a handsome hearth in the open-plan living room.

The 3,000-square-foot home is one of just two existing Connecticut homes designed by Neutra, who built extensively in California, and is said to be one of the models, along with Frank Lloyd Wright, for the architect portrayed in Ayn Rand’s Atlas Shrugged (Rand lived in a Neutra home at one point in her life). It’s offered by Rick Distel of Compass.
