Extraordinary 5400 sf. Peter Jackson designed and Wm. Plunkett built…
Designed by legendary Bauhaus architect Marcel Breuer, Stillman II epitomizes the perfect marriage of art, design and luxury. First published by House and Garden in 1967 and, among many other books and magazines, it was most recently featured in the prestigious World of Interiors and Elle Decor Magazine. Meticulously restored and upgraded with great care and sensitivity towards its origins, Stillman II can best be described as a masterpiece of design, which integrates every 21st century comfort. Its floor plan and smart use of space seem timeless and modern. The use of natural materials, including local stone in the massive walls that form the foundation and which extend into the interior, brick floors with a magnificent Breuer patina and white stucco walls; in combination with the thoughtful positioning of the house and its many walls of glass, all create a seamless connection between the interior and the surrounding landscape. Not only is this residence a true work of art to marvel at but also one to marvel from. It is located in a serene, very private and natural 9.5 acre setting abutting an additional 37 acres protected by the land trust in the beautiful Litchfield County Hills (CT.) within minutes to the quintessential Litchfield Green and about an hour and three quarters from midtown Manhattan. The nearest airports are (private plane) less than one half hour and (international) about an hour. Amenities include a cantilevered guest cube, state of the art Boffi kitchen and butler’s pantry, media room with speaker system, 35 ft heated pool and attached garage with custom storage built-ins. Stillman II will appeal to the most sophisticated and demanding of buyers. It is an architecturally significant home that not only offers unparalleled form and function but also the utmost in comfort and relaxation. This is one of those rare opportunities that is often sought but seldom found.
