Mid-Century Home Redesigned by David Ling Listed for $1.5M

The Most Expensive Homes‘ Team presents a mesmerizing Mid-Century Modern built at the foot of private Paradise Pond, in New Canaan. And it’s been redesigned by David Ling. Built in 1969, at the tail end of the Bauhaus-inspired, Mid-Century Modern boom, before has been transformed by the world-famous architect and New York-based, the home is listed for $1,525,000.


Like the best Mid-Century Moderns, is almost impossible do not feel like you’re here to live with nature. Ling’s signature style is apparent when you open the door: light pours in from walls of glass — especially from the back of the house — where a four-story glass tower overlooks the pond below.

In fact, nearly every room in the 3,920-square-foot, four-bedroom house is bathed in light— from the dining area to the master bath. As says the owner Suzanne Wade Ehrlich, “the house is vibrant no matter the weather”.


“Even in the winter time when it’s super gloomy, the whole house is filled with light,” says Ehrlich, a New Orleans native. Though she and her husband love the home, they’re selling in order to make their way back to the South.


About a decade ago, the home’s previous owners hired Ling, who said he wanted to add to the existing structure while respecting the original language of this classic example of New Canaan modernism.


His work is easily apparent in the kitchen. Each appliance and the cupboard is hidden behind a white, handle-less door that opens when pushed.


The house is technically four stories, because Ling converted the master bedroom into a two-story space with a ribbon staircase leading to an upstairs spa and extra room.


The place has also a small viewing porch from which you can see to the other side of Paradise Pond. Besides, a three-tiered deck (with a hot tub!) winds down the 2-acre property and ends next to the water.
