Back on the Market: E.D. Stone’s Celanese House   Leave a comment

Oenoke Ridge Road, New Canaan, CT, Built: 1959

Perhaps best known for the design of the Kennedy Center and the controversial building at 2 Columbus Circle, Edward Durell Stone designed this radical house in 1959. It was meant to be a showplace for the Celanese Corporation, a manufacturer of plastics and fibers. It’s present owner, Bruce Capra, purchased the house in October 2006 and performed a complete restoration along with updating.
