Striking Mid-Century modern home built by Yale architect Sidney T Miller for his own family in 1964. The house has appeared in Architectural Digest shortly after it was built and is listed in several architectural guides to New Haven. It was designed to bring the outdoors inside by creating an expansive 31 x 19 sky-lighted courtyard highlighted by a small pond, fountain and brick floor, perfect for plants and a 15 degree passive solar gain. The floor to ceiling windows and doors offer an abundance of natural light and picturesque views of the lush plants and trees surrounding the home. Breathtaking winter views of Sleeping Giant and distant city views! The center courtyard serves to tie the separate living areas together. In addition to the private bedroom wings, there is a Library with built-ins and a wet bar, private guest suite with full bath, and lower level game room, workshop and bicycle storage with outside entrance. The Master Bath has a 2 person sunken bath with a jacuzzi, steam shower and steam room. The wood ceiling and open common areas offer fabulous acoustics for musical gatherings. Located on a private wooded cul de sac two miles from Yale and downtown New Haven, this home is an easy bike ride to work. The adjacent building lot has a private tennis court and is also available for sale.
