Renowned Photographer Edward Steichen's 1939 estate, originally called "Umpawaug Farm" was built for him and he spent many years here until his death in 1973. This architecturally designed Mid-Century Modern home is sited beautifully on the pond and offers complete privacy with it's waterfront setting and views of the fields and woods beyond. One of the more iconic homes in the area, the 12+ acre property w/beautiful rolling fields includes the whole of the pond locally known as "Steichen Pond" and has sole access. The dramatic residence is stone and walls of glass. Oversized Living Room w/panoramic view of the pond and Steichen's original two-story Studio w/Loft and Full Bath are spectacular living areas. All original details intact including leaded glass windows, built-ins & quarry tile floors. Master Bedroom is large and opens to deck w/access down to the pond and the add'l two Bedrooms each w/en-suite Baths also open to patios directly on the pond. Unique concrete and steel floor & ceiling construction- extremely strong and stable. The property abuts Topstone Park and open space-- all of which was part of the original estate. Prestigious Topstone Road is not only scenic but provides easy access to RT 7, RT 84, Ridgefield Town Ctr, shops & trains. One hour to NYC, this is the quintessential NYC getaway but is also large and comfortable enough for full time living.
