An Early Modern Glass Masterpiece in the Connecticut Countryside

More

Location: Falls Village, Connecticut

Price: $3,450,000

Built in 1932 in the bucolic countryside of northwest Connecticut, this early modernist masterpiece was commissioned by the celebrated muralist Ezra Winter, who painted large-scale paintings on the walls of Radio City Music Hall and the Library of Congress. Winter's former compound sits at the heart of an 82-acre tract of private land, with a studio and house totalling 6,600-square-feet. The painting studio is a cavernous space, with 30-foot ceilings, 24-foot windows, and a mezzanine library. The accompanying four-bedroom house boasts 13-foot ceilings, radiant heating, and the original wood-paneled study. This sounds like the ideal country estate, but the history of the property does have a tragic turn: Winter took his own life in the woods here in 1949.
