Driving Directions

This beautifully restored, 1836 Greek Revival house-where famed editor and publishing legend Maxwell Perkins read and edited the manuscripts of F. Scott Fitzgerald, Thomas Wolfe, Ernest Hemingway, and Marjorie Kinnan Rawlings-is on the National Register of Historic Places. A generous garden, which offers a contemporary landscape with a geometric plan inspired in part by Le Notre, is included in the Smithsonian's Archives for American Gardens. Though the house and garden offer privacy, the location is 88 steps from the New Canaan train station (as Perkins used to say) with its rush-hour through trains to Grand Central Station. Inside, a spare, modern aesthetic and a large 2-story open space are perfect for a home office or a dramatic gallery for painting and sculpture. Upstairs, the living quarters have the sophistication of a Manhattan apartment. On the lower level, side doors open onto the sheltered garden with its pocket views of historic-district buildings. Throughout the house are bright spaces and a synthesis of the best of 19th and 20th-century design.
