If you’re looking to buy a mid-century home in Connecticut, look no further. A 1955 home built by Frank Lloyd Wright, one of America’s most-celebrated architects, is on the market for $7.2 million, and it’s worth every penny.
The Connecticut home, known as “Tirranna,” which means “running waters,” is nestled above a waterfall and is surrounded by 15 acres of gardens and plantings designed by Frank Okamura and Charles Middeleer.
This masterpiece features Wright’s iconic, modern style throughout—soaring glass walls, gold-leaf chimneys, and the finest wood finishes just to name a few highlights. With 6,917 square feet, including seven bedrooms, the entire family will have more privacy than they could ever want.
But that’s not all. The impeccably maintained home overlooks the Noroton River and is complete with a rooftop observatory so you can stargaze (includes a telescope). There’s also a guest studio, pool, tennis court, spacious barn, and sculpture paths leading to the river. It’s picturesque in every way.
Whether you’re a dedicated Wright fan or happen to be booking a trip to Connecticut soon, you’ll want to stop by for a viewing of this home because it won’t be on the market for long. Bonus: the price is down from $8 million, so now’s the time to put in an offer. You can request a showing here.
