The Rufus Stillman Cottage By Marcel Breuer

Hungarian-born modernist Marcel Breuer is an influential designer and one of the most renowned architects of the 20th century. Now, you have the chance to live in one of the late architect’s designs, as the Rufus Stillman Cottage will be up for auction in December.

Nuzzled in the rolling Litchfield hillside in Connecticut, this beautiful home set on stilts provides extraordinary views of the Naugatuck Valley. It was built by Breuer’s client and friend Rufus Stillman in 1973 and has two bedrooms, one bath, a combined kitchen and dining area, and a cantilevered screened-in porch. There’s also a pavilion addition, built posthumously by Marcel Breuer Architects, which is comprised of a foyer, great room, master bedroom with a bathroom and walk-in closet, and two adjoining screen porches running the length of the home. The design is identical to Breuer’s first Wellfleet cottage built in 1944 where he placed the home on stilts to mimic the effect of an outdoor camera sitting on a tripod and to give the home a floating aesthetic. The gorgeous 70s cottage is estimated to go for over $2 million.
