Designed by local architect Dimitri Bulazel, this 4,675-square-foot four-bedroom home at 51 Pecksland Road in Greenwich, CT was clearly inspired by Frank Lloyd Wright‘s Fallingwater house in rural Pennsylvania (h/t Curbed). While the listing calls it “reminiscent” of the 1935 architectural icon, we’ll just say it’s very, very reminiscent. Which is a good thing, because Fallingwater isn’t for sale, but this remarkable custom-built, privately commissioned modern house with its cantilevered design, walls of windows, hand-cut Tennessee limestone walls, rock gardens and rooftop terraces can actually be yours, right now, for $3.5 million.

Starting with a long private drive through 2.4 acres of woodland setting punctuated by Wright-appropriate rock outcroppings, the home’s cantilevered design was designed to find the sunlight during every part of the day. And similar to a Wright house, the home takes full advantage of the beautiful natural setting, incorporating aspects of the outdoors into every room.

Generously-sized open rooms are tied together by natural wood and stone details throughout. In the kitchen, custom-built cabinets and work spaces are totally timeless in natural materials.

Bedrooms are a mix of nature and shelter; keep clutter from spoiling these sun-filled open spaces with gorgeous floor-to-ceiling custom wood closets and a dressing room.

Outdoor spaces are just as amazing, from tiny rock gardens to a stone and concrete deck suspended across the top of the driveway. An in-ground saltwater pool with a safety cover sits just beneath a cantilevered patio.  A separate office/guest house and pool house are easily accessible from the pool.

There’s also a garage off the guest house. The property adjoins a country club and nature preserve, so while it’s close to town, it’s never far from the wilderness. The listing adds that the home “has been lovingly updated and restored without changing the integrity.”

Perhaps the one Fallingwater aspect that’s most notably missing from this covetable example of homage is the actual falling water. For that, you have only to look to another recently-featured Wright-inspired home, where you’ll find a waterfall that ends in a heated Jacuzzi.
