Willis Mills, The Willis Mills House, 1956
New Canaan, Connecticut
The Willis Mills house, a classic mid-century modern residence has been carefully updated to reflect today’s lifestyle. Now listed on the National Register of Historic Places, the original redwood structure was uniquely designed for its two-acre site by the renowned architect for his own family. Lofty ceilings and dramatic walls of glass hug the outdoor views that are lushly landscaped and marked by a private pool and spa set in a natural rock outcropping.
The property has a vast history of documentation in publications such as Elle Deco, Nov. 2004: Dwell March 2005, Modern Homes Survey, and the National Register of Historic Places has an extensive bibliography.
