Greenwich House

In the bosky northwest corner of Greenwich, Connecticut, about an hour’s drive from Midtown Manhattan, is a single-family retreat designed by Murdock Solon Architects. The private residence is shielded from the roads which encircle the property via newly landscaped berms that are an integral component of the design as a whole. The house is masterfully integrated into the landscape, allowing for privacy while still maximizing views of the spacious grounds. The 5.9-acre wooded and hilly swath of land is bordered on three sides by protected wetlands that slope away from the residence, effectively creating an ‘island’ for its residents, who enjoy the privacy, to occupy. There is a feeling of being alone in the woods here.
