Great Spaces: An Inside Look at a Wowing Connecticut Custom Contemporary

Easton_Conn_ContemporaryHidden in the quaint town of Easton, Conn., sits this unique custom-built contemporary, designed by architect John Newman and inspired by Frank Lloyd Wright’s “Fallingwater” home. Just a little over an hour away from New York City, this six-bedroom, nine-and-a-half-bathroom home contains a breathtaking 800 x 400 square-foot atrium, three-story windows, and steel, stucco and stone throughout. And that’s not even half of what’s nestled inside its walls.

Integrating everyday living with nature, the 9,686-square-foot building is truly a sight to be seen. Blue skies and lush greenery are welcomed inside via the home’s sprawl of German-made windows. If that doesn’t bring the outside close enough, seven terraces provide ample opportunity to sit outside and breathe in the air. Conversely, for those chilly summer or fall evenings, six fireplaces are scattered throughout, including one in the formal dining room that stretches floor to ceiling among many exposed steel rafters.

For those who love to cook, the chef’s kitchen is decorated with honed granite, an island and a stainless steel stove. One of the home’s many terraces is located just off the kitchen, providing a convenient space for outside dining or, at the very least, a sunny indoor meal.

Sharing a fireplace with the home office, the master bedroom suite contains built-in desks with warm wooden shelving throughout. Other perks include hardwood floors, a walk-in closet, its own private balcony and the master bath, enwrapped in slate walls and flooring, with limestone counters. And a hot tub encased in glass? Check!

Other entertainment-worthy features include a Gunite outdoor heated pool, a rec room and a cozy home theater area.

The contemporary design of this suburban Connecticut dwelling has something for everyone. It can be the perfect hideaway for those seeking peace, quiet and escape; an expansive home to raise a family in; or one of the sleekest party pads this state has ever seen. The option is all yours.
