Architectural Notes : Why this home is special . . .
Our home is a Mid-century Modern house that offers an open-floor plan with a sense of privacy. Design sensitivity is the hallmark of this special property. The interaction and awareness of the oneness of architecture with environment is the living experience here.

An expansive 40ft wall of glass seamlessly connects the interior with an exterior that faces South into the large, mature landscaped backyard.
The backyard area includes the spacious deck, patio and lawn for outdoor dining, garden and play activities.
There is also a private place for meditative relaxation. Counterpoint to the backyard is the fully landscaped front area deliberately obscuring the house from the road view. The front entrance is accessed from the parking area along a narrow, lush pathway that curves, then opens to a secluded, white gravel "Zen" garden. From the garden, cantilevered steps lead to the private entrance.

The ground level of the open-floor house plan includes a foyer with powder room that leads to the large living / dining space. This further integrates with the eat-in kitchen, access to a smaller outdoor deck leading to second parking area. Also, on the ground level, tucked behind a glass topped "pony wall", is a hidden Master suite enclosure. This private unit includes a bedroom, an equally large dressing room and bathroom with spacious showering section.

Just off the entry foyer are steps leading up to a separate second level common space. This area is used as a work space and connects to the two bedrooms with large size beds, small library with many art books and full bathroom with twin sinks. This level is perfect for extended family and visitor privacy.

Walnut parquet, bamboo strip, architectural tile and stone flooring, wide fireplace brick hearth, interesting furnishings and original artwork throughout are all evident of the residents' personal aesthetic.

Interesting architectural spaces are integral to this home. High, sloping pine board ceilings with their massive wooden beams and supports define the space with simplicity and clarity. Spaciousness and light throughout the entire house are accentuated by skylights, cutouts, clerestory and expansive windows and glass doors. Sensitive use of structural elements and materials of wood, glass, stone and concrete incorporate the minimalist aesthetics of Modernism.

Our home is beautiful, special and unique. It is certainly a joy to simply be here.

There are no words to describe how grateful I am to Liisa and Doug, they were truly magnificent people with hearts of gold. They were amazingly kind to me and made me feel so welcome and at home! The room was beautiful and the whole house is a place of calm and reflection! I don't think anybody has ever welcomed me this much or ever will- like Liisa and Doug did! They are the kind of people that restore one's faith in humanity. I stayed with them for a whole month and by the end, it truly felt like leaving home. Thank you for being the best human beings there are.

Doug and Liisa are a lovely couple - very friendly, easy-going and considerate, especially demonstrated by their considerations of my wife's various food intolerances. Their home is quite unique and is a relaxing place decorated in a Nordic style. Beware that the bedrooms experience some noise in the morning from traffic.

Liisa and Doug's home was a perfect place for a couple of nights in New Haven! It is convenient to Downtown while being in a more suburban quiet neighborhood with a beautiful backyard. I was looking for a quiet, relaxing place to stay after some busy days, and this house was a great fit. Liisa and Doug are warm, attentive hosts, thoughtfully leaving “treats” to welcome us on our arrival, and available whenever needed. The house itself is an incredible example of mid-century modern architecture, kept in pristine condition. Our room was in it’s own separate area, felt private, and had it’s own separate entrance to use, if wanted. I’ll be back!d

Thank you for your kind words Christine. It was a joy to host you and play with Pepper. Always a pleasure to have a proxy pet visit, especially one of such sublime temperament. Please return soon.

Liisa and Doug were kind and thoughtful hosts. They made sure that we had everything we needed and went the extra mile with water and treats in our rooms and flowers for Mother's Day. Their home is beautiful, clean, and comfortable. Thank you for a great stay!

Nutzerprofil von LiisaLiisa ist ein Superhost.

I grew up in Finland and studied and worked in Sweden and Norway. After a few years in Paris I finished my studies at the Basel School of Design in Switzerland where I met my husband, Douglas (from CT, USA). We have lived here for 30 years now, raised two sons and enjoyed our design business. We love to travel, meet people and we recently added the last continent of South America to our list this spring. Art, culture and nature are things we enjoy and traveling with AirBnb has allowed us to get closer to the authentic experiences we like.
