House of the Day: Modernist Masterpiece in Connecticut

Platner was an architect and designer of modernistic furniture that's become an emblem of the 1960s. He designed several well-known interior spaces in New York, including offices for the Ford Foundation and the original Windows on the World restaurant that resembled the interior of an ocean liner. He lived in Guilford, Conn., until his 2006 death at age 86.

The five-acre gated compound has a conservatory with a 25-foot high ceiling and a natural light gallery/studio. The home has five bedrooms in 10,124 square feet. Some original furnishings by Platner are included in the price.

Sotheby's International Realty of Greenwich, Conn., has the listing.
