Marcel Breuer’s Gagarin House I Designed by legendary Bauhaus architect…
Perfectly sited on a gorgeous hilltop setting above Lake Waramaug — the most desirable lake in Connecticut — this exceptional offering features a bright and airy main residence with phenomenal water views, a wraparound bluestone patio, 150-ft of frontage with private dock, private sandy beach, and a powered waterfront storage shed.
Deeply set back from the road, the property boasts complete privacy compared to most lakefront properties, but with equally dramatic views of the lake and the ever-changing foliage of the distant hills.
Completely rebuilt in 2007, the 3-bedroom/2-bath house exudes a happy, bright, fresh and “beachy” feeling that can only be found in lakefront living. The window-wrapped main level has an open concept layout with immaculate hardwood flooring throughout, 9 ft ceilings and spacious rooms for easy entertaining. The heart of the home is a spacious gourmet kitchen — with stainless steel appliances, concrete counters, and abundant cabinetry, center island with vegetable prep sink, and breakfast bar — that opens to a large combined living/dining room with wood-burning fireplace and sliders to the dual-level bluestone patio … and the fabulous views. A full bath and two guest bedrooms — each with their own spectacular views — also comprise the main level, along with a separate laundry room off the entry foyer with built-ins.
The second level master bedroom suite allows top-of-the-hill lake vistas from its own balcony, a walk-in closet, white marble bath with dual sink and double shower.
Other highlights include a 3-car detached garage with loft storage, generator hookup, a brand-new septic and new well.
Minutes from bespoke shops and restaurants, and 80 miles from NYC, the property can be enjoyed both as a year-round residence or as an ultimate indulgent weekend getaway for large-scale entertaining, boating, fishing and a variety of other water/outdoor activities of your choice.
