Celebrities, Connecticut, Cool Listings

44 Chestnut Hill Road, Lester Rossin, Stamford real estate, mid-century-modern home Connecticut, Luise Rainer Connecticut

Just an hour outside of NYC in Stamford, Connecticut, a mid-century modern gem is available for sale for the first time in 65+ years, and it’s got some serious celeb history. The Post reports that the late Oscar-winning actress Luise Rainer and her husband, publisher Robert Knittel, bought a 6.64-acre site in 1950, “where they enjoyed weekend getaways in a 600-square-foot cottage.” After just a couple years, though, they sold the property to Lester Rossin, one of the original Madison Avenue “Mad Men” advertising executives. He added a stunning modern home, which was designed to host his “lavish, Hollywood star-lit parties,” according to the listing. Both this main home and Rainer’s cottage have now hit the market for $995,000.
