The original owners of this uniquely shaped home were set designers, and their flair for the dramatic comes through in the home’s architecture.
“They had flamboyant taste,” says listing agent Danna Rogers of The Higgins Group. “They wanted a home designed for entertaining.”
Architect James Biber worked with the owners to create a home filled with unusual shapes, from a pyramid-shaped entrance to cylinder windows.
Despite the unusual exterior, the home inside is contemporary and light-filled — a function of the second owners, who, according to Rogers, toned down and modernized the décor.
“It’s now a simple contemporary,” said Rogers. “It’s not your traditional Colonial.”
The home sits on more than two acres of lush greenery in Westport, just an hour from New York City and two hours from Boston. The home has 5,589 square feet of open floor plan, with four bedrooms and 5.5 bathrooms. Although not necessarily designed as a home for small children, the home comes with architect plans to add extra space for kids. Additional features of the property include a tennis court, pool, steam shower in the master suite, and media room.
Wondering what the monthly cost of a home like this would be? Using a mortgage calculator, the payment is estimated at $13,849 a month, assuming a 20 percent down payment on a 30-year fixed mortgage.
