A-frame lovers, get ready to be blown away: A four-bedroom, four-bath home in Litchfield, Connecticut, boasts not one, not two, but six interconnected A-frame structures. This makes the house much larger than most A-frames, measuring a respectable 4,234 square feet.
The home was designed by architect Thomas Babbitt as his family residence with half of it constructed in 1947 and the other half added in 1970. Its unique style made an immediate impression on the Litchfield community, serving as a showpiece for an architecture tour and festival and as the photo eye candy for several articles in the local press.
The peaked roofs feature 24-foot glass gables that overlook several large wooden decks. Inside, exposed redwood beams and three stone fireplaces add warmth, and the soaring roofs create a cathedral-like atmosphere with an open floor plan. Many of the home’s original features have been preserved, including the slate floors in the spacious kitchen and a Isamu Noguchi chandelier in an upstairs bedroom.
While most A-frames have just one lofted area, this home has several. Everywhere you look triangles catch the eye, from the bedrooms to what looks to be the original bathrooms. There’s even an A-frame style garage. Interested? 112 Norfolk Road is located on a 15-acre, lightly wooded lot and is on the market for $835,000.
