In a small wooded stretch of Connecticut is a house called New Canaan Residence. Nestled on a hillside and surrounded by green trees and peaceful splendor, this home has been modified from the house it once was to have all of the modern conveniences of today.
With all of the lighting and appliances that go into a modern home, this wooded homestead is more than just a home, it’s a lovely little glass castle.
After a short winding drive through the wooded expanse of the country, you will reach the front courtyard of the New Canaan Residence. From there, enjoy the glass views of the house that make the forest seem like you’ve stumbled upon something magical.
The treetops around the house seem to protect it from strong sunlight and the darkness of the night. The floor-to-ceiling glass windows offer a perfect view of the surrounding landscape and offer the owner and visitors a unique view of the outside world, from the security of the interior.
The upper floors consist of the main living areas of the family. Here you will find the bedrooms, living room, kitchen and a small gym for those much-needed times to get rid of that extra energy.
Hidden behind a free-standing fireplace is a narrow staircase that leads down into the earth. This lower level has more rooms that include an office or guest room for couples, a media room, and more social space. This lower area includes some unique outdoor seating areas that are cozy and have their own fireplace.
Also included are a pool and pool house, which are completely separate and yet offer the same modern comforts as the house itself. Everything fits the eye perfectly and makes the entire New Canaan Residence a real illusion.
