New Canaan Modernism is not a foreign phrase to those of us that have an infatuation with mid century architecture. The DeSilver House is currently for sale and is a stunning example of MCM architecture. Designed and built in 1961 by John Black Lee I don’t think a home could be more perfect. There are so many elements at play here it is hard to favorite just one. The bridge leading to the front is fantastic. I greatly appreciate that the current owners have furnished it with period pieces. The authentic furniture takes you back to what the home was.
