Would love to know your opinion on this one!
A New Canaan, CT home…almost 12,000 square feet, 6 bedrooms, 9 baths, 2 partial bats, a pool, several fireplaces, library, exercise room, water view all on 4.5 acres of gorgeous property. This home is listed by Sotheby’s International Realty for $7.99 million dollars.
It is quite a grand house as you can see from the view above.
Now for the style…Sotheby’s calls the architecture Colonial and the decor inside is definitely an eclectic mix leaning towards mid century modern.
What an interesting surprise to see modern retro decor inside a home that has rather traditional architecture. Very interesting indeed. Who says the inside has to match the outside of a home? Not quite my style but I can see where someone might like this. You decide in today’s SEE THIS HOUSE!

|The den has a distinctly mid century modern vibe with the stone fireplace and the furnishings including a Noguchi coffee table. (above)|
|The white kitchen with gray counters and stainless appliances leans is more of a nod to the traditional bones of the home. (above and below)|

So what do you think of this home…this mix of styles? What do you like…what don’t you like? Would you take it or leave it? I would take it and change out all of the furniture for something a little more neutral in style and get rid of some of the stone around the fireplaces and add some flowers, pillows and throws to warm things up a bit in the home…then it could possibly work for me…I’d take it if someone offered it to me as a gift. I would! Wonder what you might do on this one? Hmmm…curious to know!
P.S. Busy week ahead! Hope yours is good!
