Tiranna / Frank Lloyd Wright


The Wall Street Journal reports that the Frank Lloyd Wright-designed Tiranna, a 1955-built residence named after the aboriginal word for running waters, has just gone on the market in New Canaan, Connecticut.

Purchased by memorabilia mogul and philanthropist Ted Stanley and his wife Vada about 20 years ago, the incredible 15-acre property, also known as the Rayward-Shepherd House and the John L Rayward House, has been well-preserved after undergoing an extensive restoration that also added a few updates.

The horseshoe-shaped house measures nearly 7,000 square feet and is arranged around a courtyard and includes seven bedrooms, eight baths, expansive open-plan living space, a rotating steel-and-glass observatory on the roof, wood panelling throughout, built-ins like storage, shelving, and furniture, multiple fireplaces — including one with a gold-leaf chimney, carved beams, floor-to-ceiling windows, a greenhouse, guest studio, and so much more.

The hemicycle is situated beside the Noroton River and a waterfall and is surrounded by woods. Other amenities include a swimming pool, tennis court, a large barn, and original gardens and landscaping Frank Okamura and Charles Middeleer. Located at 432 Frogtown Road, this one-of-a-kind home is available for $8,000,000 through Houlihan Lawrence — via Curbed
