New Canaan, Connecticut is probably the best-known town in the state for contemporary and mid-century modern homes with masterpieces by Philip Johnson, Frank Lloyd Wright and others. But Weston, CT comes in a close second, and at better value for those looking for contemporary homes in Connecticut.
Below are four of our favorite contemporary houses currently on the market. Click here if you would like more information on any of them!
47 Davis Hill Road
Perhaps the most desirable part of this home isn’t its contemporary architecture, but the fact that you are on your own mini-estate! The home has 4 bedrooms and 4 full baths but it also has a pool and tennis court as well as 5 acres! With Weston’s 2 acre zoning, this means you could potentially subdivide and build another home for resale or simply sell off some of the land. One notable fact about this house though is that it was inspired by Frank Lloyd Wright and was actually designed and built by his protégé, Alex Toefl.

112 Birch Hill Road
What we love most about this house is that parts of it remind us of Philip Johnson and the Glass House. The home has 5 bedrooms, 3 full and 2 half baths and almost 5,000 square feet of living space. The home struggles with a comprehensive architectural vision – there are elements of Phillip Johnson mixed with California contemporary – but in an era where everything often looks the same, a bit of architectural menagerie is actually a relief.

16 Valley Forge Road
Much like 47 Davis Hill Road, the best part about this contemporary house is the property around it, which is undoubtedly stunning. Complete with a tennis court, pool and pool bar, this house is very much a summer oasis. We also love the fact that the home is directly on the water, which adds a natural element to it that balances the architecture. The house has 4 bedrooms, 4 full and 1 half bath and 3,971 square feet. Photo / Listing Credit: Coldwell Banker
326 Georgetown Road
Our favorite contemporary house on the market in Weston, CT at the moment is by far this new construction with an amazing open floor plan! The home was designed by an incredibly accomplished architect, Bill Schaffer, who is responsible for some of the most beautiful homes in Weston and the surrounding areas. Fortunately for the next owners, he was given carte blanche to create a contemporary but warm and fully functional house – there is nothing wasted on flights of fancy like so many other contemporary houses in town. The house has 4,570 square feet, 5 bedrooms, 4 full and 1 half bathrooms as well as room for in-laws, a nanny or gym, media room and wine cellar. The home also has the latest in smart home technology and energy efficiencies. While most other homes on the market will require significant updates or renovations, this gorgeous contemporary new construction is turnkey. All you need is your toothbrush.
