Nature and serenity abound in this 1950s residence designed by architect Frank Lloyd Wright. And for $8 million, it could be yours.

Located on 15 acres in New Canaan, Connecticut, the “Tiranna” house, also known as the Rayward-Shepherd House or the John L. Rayward House, offers almost 7,000 square feet of living space, including seven bedrooms and eight baths.

The hemicycle design overlooks the Noroton River and sits above a waterfall, reminiscent of Wright’s “Fallingwater” residence, in Mill Run, Pennsylvania. A rooftop observatory with a telescope, landscaped courtyard, a tennis court and a swimming pool also add to the home’s lure.

Features, Renovations

The Tiranna property has been renovated and equipped with some modern finishes, but the owners took care to maintain Wright’s original style. Gold leaf chimneys, built-in storage areas, soaring glass windows and wood finishes are featured throughout.

Vincent Benic Architect, of New York City, noted in a project brief that in 1999 the firm had been “retained to evaluate and oversee correction of a variety of complex problems relating to the exterior envelope, in particular the sweeping roof forms which incorporate multiple skylights and unusual edge conditions.”

The firm did not immediately respond Wednesday (Feb. 8) to a request for more details about the renovation.

More information is available via the Houlihan Lawrence listing. Reports indicate that proceeds from the sale will be donated to charity.

The Tiranna home is not the only Wright-designed residence making headlines at the moment, the architect's Darwin D. Martin house complex in Buffalo, New York, has recently been restored and partially reconstructed as a museum.
