Jazz Musician David Brubeck’s Japanese-Inspired Home Is For Sale

David Brubeck is best known for his contributions to jazz, but the Wilton, Connecticut, home where he resided until his death at the age of 91 in 2012 is its own kind of masterpiece, and it is now for sale for the first time ever. Listed at $2.75 million, the eight-bedroom, five-and-a-half-bathroom dwelling was custom built by the “Take Five” musician in 1963.

Brubeck was inspired by Japanese architecture after visiting the country on tour, and the residence features a number of Asian-inspired elements including a red moon gate, a garden with fountains and bridges, and shoji screens. The dining room furniture, which is still inside the home, was custom-made for the space by George Nakashima.
