With its vaulted ceilings, wood paneling, pink details, and retro rec room, this 1960-built home in Greenwich, Connecticut is the textbook definition of mid-century modern design. In addition to the attractive interiors, the home features a patio and is also set back from the road, which provides privacy and additional outdoor space. Located at 261 Cognewaugh Road in Cos Cob, the three-bedroom, two-bath home is now on the market for $1.125 million.

Immediately step back in time at the ranch-style brick home with its dramatic orange-painted wood entry doors that are surrounded by floor-to-ceiling windows. The property sits on about one acre of land and boasts a decent-sized front yard, an attached two-car garage, and a long driveway.

Upon entering the home, you’re greeted by exciting architectural elements, like a vaulted, exposed beamed ceiling in the living room. The spacious room also has a mod brick fireplace flanked by wood and built-in shelves.

Perfect for (post-pandemic) parties, the simple open layout lets you see from one end of the house to the other, with lots of windows keeping things bright. Staying on style, there’s lots of wood paneling and unique angles in the pastel pink-painted kitchen and family room, which overlook lots of trees and greenery.

The finished basement seems to be preserved in all of its 1960s beauty, with a throwback curved bar and wood walls. And there’s plenty of room for a play space, an office, and a workout area.

The spacious master bedroom features hardwood floors and a cozy windowed nook that would be perfect for a work-from-home space. Pink tiles and a Hollywood style vanity in the bathroom feel just over-the-top enough. All three bedrooms and two baths are located on the main level.

Bask in the glory of the great outdoors with a patio and terrace facing the woods, accessible via sliding glass doors. Located west of the Mianus River, the home is a short drive away from downtown restaurants and stores, as well as the Cos Cob train station, part of Metro-North’s New Haven line.
