Check out Google; it was shot during the leafless autumn. You can actually see what is beneath the canopy of chestnuts.*

This is a wonderful house, but the $750K price seems suspicious. It may be that there is work to be done. Weston, especially private Skylark Lane and environs, look pricey for such a modest amount. Although I don't see evidence of "a babbling waterfall across the street."

The only other house on Skylark was also designed by Gelbin as his home and office. It has been on and off the market over the past few years. The owners were asking twice the price. This is lovely part of Connecticut, basically wealthy, suburban New York City.

Oh, yes -- I recall that we looked at this house, several years back. A very sweet take on the classic Usonian type, accomplished with simplicity and a lot of finesse.
