Marcel Breuer’s Gagarin House I Designed by legendary Bauhaus architect…
24 Painter Ridge Rd, Roxbury, CT 06783, USA
Perched at the nexus of the two most prestigious ridges in Roxbury that afford pure western views, local craftsman and architect Rob Saunders leveraged state-of-the-art technology to create an energy efficient green home that seamlessly blends modern components and amenities with classic New England character. The use of solar and geothermal energy, natural stone and custom finishes provide the foundation for a ‘smart’ and aesthetically rich home, where every detail was chosen with exacting standards and built to last. From the extra-wide hallways to the Duravit waterworks, to the 100-year metal roof with thick copper gutters, to the Green Mountain windows with UV protection—the house is loaded with a host of high-end creature comforts.
Noteworthy features of the 4-bedroom/3.1 bath include living room with 16ft. cathedral ceiling, fireplace, radiant flagstone and oak flooring, formal dining space with Tulikivi wood stove, two Master Bedroom Suites, 12’ ceiling eat-in kitchen with SubZero, Miele appliances, honed granite countertops, Poggenpohl Swedish cabinets, Toto toilets, limestone tiling, custom solid oak doors, completely zoned climate control and Lutron lighting throughout. Additional living spaces include office with French doors to private patio, rec-room/gym/studio, screened porch and an all-season sky-lit swimming pool. The 4.26-acre property features gardens, stone walls, two flagstone patios, impeccably landscaped grounds, and one of the longest western views in Roxbury.
