Polish off your math books, this contemporary home in Connecticut is a lesson in geometry.
“The whole house is lots of geometric shapes — the architect is famous for that — there’s cylinders, squares, pyramids and little detailed windows all throughout the house in different shapes,” said listing agent Danna Rogers of The Higgins Group.
Architect James Biber was commissioned by the original owners to create a home ready for entertaining. Its dramatic architecture is a function of the owners’ occupations: movie set designers.
“They had this very flamboyant taste,” said Rogers. “They had this theatrical way about them and you sense that when you walk in.”
The home is entirely connected and open, with soaring ceilings and numerous windows, creating a floor plan that is big and bright. Much of the unusually designed home is quite contemporary thanks to the current owners, who modernized and toned down the decor.
“It’s still not your ‘traditional Colonial,'” said Rogers, “but everything about the home is very current.”
The house sits on over two, lush acres, which include a tennis court and pool. Inside, the 5,589-square-foot home has 4 bedrooms, 5.5 bathrooms, a media room and a generous master suite, which features a steam shower in addition to a traditional shower.
