Why we chose it: Even if we didn’t know that this house was published in Town and Country and Time Magazine in 1958, we would have chosen it. There’s something Zen-like about this place. As Doug Newby puts it, “It’s a home that’s actually restful for your eyes.” That sentiment makes sense when you’re standing in front of the house.
