DARIEN, Conn. – William Pitt Sotheby’s International Realty announced the firm has listed an international-style modern home designed by renowned architect Arthur Holden.
Holden was a student under former U.S. President Woodrow Wilson when Wilson was president of Princeton University, as well as a friend and admirer of renowned architect Frank Lloyd Wright and architectural researcher and writer Lewis Mumford. His work was inspired by these and other noteworthy figures throughout his career, with the construction of this house being no exception.
Agent Inger Stringfellow has the listing, which is in Darien, and offered at $2.9 million.
Holden graduated from Princeton in the class of 1912 with a degree in literature, eventually going on to Columbia for a Bachelor of Architecture and a master’s in economics. Throughout his career, Holden’s most famous influences came from his admiration for the architectural understanding present in the written works of Lewis Mumford, as well as his strong friendship with modernist Frank Lloyd Wright.
The home at 27 Tory Hole Road is one of many designed by Holden. Located on 5.47 acres of land in the prestigious Darien neighborhood of Delafield Island, the 4,035-square-foot modern residence contains a thoughtfully crafted design that takes full advantage of the property’s unusual site, where the house sits high, perched atop a hill and approached by a long, winding driveway, according to a press release.
Holden strategically built the home with a curving façade to naturally fit the contours of its natural surroundings, according to a press release. Inside, the three-bedroom, four-and-a-half-bath home, a free open space dominates, with the absence of parallel walls and doors adding fluidity to the interior floor plan, according to a press release.
