Breathtaking mid-century home with storied lineage on the banks of the Saugatuck River. Built in 1957 by Ralph Alswang, a Broadway theater designer and architect, and modeled on the Johnson Glass House, this stunning home was conceived to capture views of its gorgeous surroundings from every room. Boasting a top-to-bottom renovation in 2016, there's absolutely nothing to do but enjoy life in this exceptional home. Enter the dramatic front entry and immediately note the soaring two-story living room with its walls of glass. High-end natural materials including reclaimed wood and stunning natural stone define the indoor spaces and draw nature in. As functional as it is beautiful, this home is the perfect place to spend a quiet afternoon or to easily entertain friends and family. Upstairs the master suite takes in the same stunning views of the river and gardens, and features a beautiful stone bath with fireplace. Three additional bedrooms and two additional stylish baths complete the home. Ample storage, beautiful barn-style 2-car garage. Swim and kayak in the river, hike the 330-acre Trout Brook Valley Preserve just up the road. This extraordinary private sanctuary is just minutes from the restaurants and shopping of downtown Westport and Fairfield. See addendum for extensive renovations in 2016.
