HPX January/February 2008 - Philip Johnson’s Alice Ball House in New Canaan, CT

back to listings

The Alice Ball House located at 523 Oenoke Ridge was designed by Philip Johnson, master architect of the ‘Harvard Five’ mid-century modernists.  Referred to as his ‘little jewel’, this sculpture of modern architecture is sited on the ‘Ridge’ known for its estates. Built in 1953, the property encompasses 2.197 acres, the main Alice Ball House, a guest cottage, a walled secret garden, courtyards, and extensive mature plantings. As with many Modernists buildings in the area, the threat of a teardown is very real.
