Our feature home of the month: The Wiley House, custom designed and built in the early 1950s, should be toured in person so as appreciate its uniqueness. Mimicking his own Glass House, renowned architect Philip Johnson designed this one-of-a-kind structure just a few years after creating his own historic New Canaan-based property, which attracts tourists from all over the world.

Like many Mid-century moderns, this home was specifically designed to fit the land using cantilevered design. In this case, the slightly sloping property that was personally selected by Johnson allows for multiple magnificent  exposures from its looming double height windows. The landscaping and tree-lined skyline are features of the oversized breathtaking 6+ acre site that lies at the end of a  serene cul-de-sac.

The rubble stone walls with vintage pool, new pool house, and art gallery in a reconstructed 19th century barn form their own separate courtyard and allow perfect siting for sculptures of all sizes. The Wiley House, with its four bedrooms and three baths, make this the perfect weekend property and/or daily residence. Come and try it on to see if it fits you!
