A WORK OF ART & A RARE DISCOVERY. Located on a gorgeous, private 40-acre parcel, this distinctive, mid-century modern home was designed by Andrew Geller known as the “Architect of Happiness”. According to Jake Gorst, Emmy Award winning documentary filmmaker, this home is “one of the best-preserved Geller homes in the country” and will be featured in an upcoming film, “New England Modernism; Revolutionary Architecture in the 20th Century”, which will be aired on Amazon Prime in 2023. This uninhibited, sculptural home captures the biophilic design inspiration of a Long Island potato barn with its dual ellipse-style windows allowing natural light to unveil the beauty of exposed beams, fieldstone fireplaces and striking cathedral ceilings completely covered in wood. The open flow and the comfortable, free style of the home fills you with warmth as soon as you enter. The private, main-level guest suite is perfect for weekend guests or as an in-law suite. The unique gabled roof is just one of many architectural details that has been perfectly preserved in this work of architectural art. The views of the surrounding 40-acre property are breathtaking. Enjoy the in-ground pool and expansive deck with unbelievable views. The barn on the property is perfect for storage. Beach rights to Town Park on Candlewood Lake. Property may be subdividable; buyer to do own diligence. Property taxes currently reflect 38.19 acres designated as forestry. Contingent upon seller finding suitable housing.
