WESTON, Conn. -- One of Weston’s most architecturally unique homes, designed by a firm led by a key influencer in 20th century design, has come on the market at 94 Lords Highway.
The 3-bedroom, 3-bath home includes 1,797 square feet of living space and two acres of land. The home was designed by a team led by a disciple of Edward Durrell Stone, an early practitioner of modern architecture and peer of Frank Lloyd Wright. The home is listed for $799,999 and is being offered by Cyd Hamer and Inger Stringfellow of William Pitt Sotheby’s International Realty.
“It’s a special home,’’ Hamer said. “It’s unique to find a true mid-century modern. There are a lot of Contemporaries from the 1980s, but not a lot like this one.”
The home’s location is one of its most attractive features. It is close to Weston Center, but also offers views of Laurel Lake. Within minutes, residents can whisk into town by car on nearby Route 53 or hike to the lake.
“You feel miles away, but you’re close to everything you need,’’ Hamer said. “You’re really one with nature. The house has this terrific Zen feel. There’s nice soft lighting in the rafters, and the walls of glass give terrific views of nature. It has radiant heat, and it’s very warm. Sometimes there’s a fear with a glass house that it can be cold. This is so cozy and inviting, it has a great feel.”
Hamer said the home’s coziness is one of the unique features of the home that is not conveyed through online pictures. “It has all these cozy places surrounded by glass,’’ she said. “People don’t expect a home with a modern design to be that warm.”
With its long walls of glass, the home also offers the home’s residents beautiful views in every season. “There’s the potential for nice views from every room in the house,’’ Hamer said.
The home’s third bedroom also functions as a den. A sleek Gaggenau kitchen flows outside and to a dining room and living room with fireplace. There are three modern baths, a whole house generator and quiet living on a cul-de-sac. The backyard includes a gorgeous moss-covered hillside.
The project was overseen by Stone, who designed several homes in the region, including one on Davis HIll Road in Weston.
“What I really love about the house is it’s impressive from any angle, especially in twilight photos. You can stand outside on a mahogany deck and get taken away. It’s so peaceful.”
