Rare Viñoly-Designed Estate Debuts on Market For $9.75M



This International Style-inspired concrete home even comes with its very own farmhouse.

There are two heated swimming pools: inside and out. The present owner completely refurbished both pools and updated the glass which covers the perimeter, helping to bring the home to "even better than original" condition.

Located in Ridgefield, Connecticut, is one of a very few private residences designed by famed Uruguayan architect, Rafael Viñoly. The architect is best known for his large-scale commissions such as Jazz at Lincoln Center, the Tokyo International Forum, and the divisive 432 Park Avenue, currently holding the record as the tallest residential tower in the Western Hemisphere.

Privately set on five acres of land, the sale of the 16,000-square-foot concrete home is unique in that it is being sold together with a 3,500-square-foot farmhouse across the street. An additional 11-acres of land is also thrown into the deal.   

The five-acre hilltop locale is surrounded by trees and shrubberies with the original landscaping costs estimated to be approximately $3m, according to the listing agent.
