Architect Philip Johnson's name is synonymous with modernism and his famous Glass House that's now a national landmark and museum in New Canaan.

There are dozens of examples of his residential designs in the area but it's not often they are on the market.

At 523 Oenoke Ridge in New Canaan, an important and significant Philip Johnson modern stone and glass home that has been completely restored, is on the market. Situated on 2.2 acres on Oenoke Ridge, the three-bedroom, three-bath house features a 1,773-square foot main house, a guest cottage, and walled gardens. The main house also has high ceilings, original period fixtures and original cabinetry.

According to the listing with William Pitt Sotheby's International, there is room for expansion as well as an approved building site providing the original home is preserved. The property is surrounded by manicured lawns, mature plantings and also includes a fountain.

The price: $2,795,000.
