One can easily picture Cole Porter downing martinis in this glamorous but aging masterpiece of curvaceous contemporary design, built in 1937 by architect Nathaniel Saltonstall. Its three stories — downstairs is a reception hall — are linked by an open walnut staircase with glass-block exterior. On the main floor, a living room, library, solarium, and dining room are made for entertaining, while the kitchen, greenhouse, and maid's room with en suite bath are cozier. Upstairs, the master suite has a huge dressing room, bathroom, and balcony entrance, while two other bedrooms share a bath.
