Calatrava purchases traditional house in Connecticut

Noted architect Santiago Calatrava has reportedly purchased a 35- acre country estate in Warren Connecticut for a cool $5.5 million, 25 % below the $7.35 asking price. Formerly owned by the former American Express Company Chairman and CEO James Robinson, the property features a 5,500 sq ft 1930s vintage house with five bedrooms and five baths, two tennis courts and a pool that overlooks a lake.

In 2007, Calatrava made NY his primary residence after years of living in Paris and Zurich. He currently owns a property in nearby Kent Connecticut. No word as to whether the architect will put his stamp on the lovely yet otherwise sedate home.
