Marcel Breuer’s Gagarin House I Designed by legendary Bauhaus architect…
Private, elegant, and executed with extraordinary taste. The grand, custom-built 5,000+ square foot home is deeply set back from the road by a 500ft driveway, and surrounded by protected land. It boasts a “hidden” Master Suite and main floor guest suite, each with marble baths; formal living room, formal dining room, and sunroom — each with wood-burning fireplace. Exterior amenities feature an in-ground pool with newly refinished pool house/cabana; large post & beam barn; manicured gardens and specimen plantings that include a Joan Rivers-gifted specimen Weeping Beach tree… all on nearly seven acres with a river running through it. Among the exterior highlights accenting the grounds you’ll find a bluestone patio, stone walls and walkways, iron gates, a 14th century well, and a long, hosta-hemmed driveway. The property is private without feeling isolated and conveniently located within walking distance to the town of Warren and local shops, minutes to Lake Waramaug, Warren private town beach and the shopping village of New Preston. 90 minutes from midtown NYC.
Warren, a bucolic Litchfield County town, has long been a haven for residents seeking quiet and solitude amid a setting of rural beauty. It became a separate town in 1786 after splitting away from Kent, and was named in honor of the Revolutionary War hero Joseph Warren, who died in the Battle of Bunker Hill. Warren is adjacent to the larger towns of Washington and Kent. Residents enjoy boating and other water sports as well as the public tennis courts and town beach at Lake Waramaug. The scenic lake is nestled among surrounding hills, and along its edge are grand homes, lakeside cottages, several inns and a vineyard overlooking the water. Lake Waramaug is the second largest natural lake in Connecticut, covering 672 acres. Warren also has a small state park in Above All State Park, which offers unrivaled views of the surrounding countryside.
