House on Point

As commanding and stoic as a lighthouse, this stone castle was designed to tower above Nor’easter waves.

This private Connecticut property is situated on a quarter-acre peninsula jutting out into Long Island Sound, a point of land projecting a classic cove with beach and anchorage. As waterfront architects, we saw how this unique location was brimming with location with potential and got to work on the quintessential shingle-style sanctuary.

Circular turrets add character to the home and expand the area that could be transformed into floor-to-ceiling windows. Many elements–from the roof, to the shape of the home, to the type of windows used–beckon the classic shingle style so prevalent in New England.

Views wrap themselves around the property, including the New York City skyline.

While situated on a rocky piece of land, the property still boasts ample green lawn and a custom inground pool. A private dock juts out into the powerful waves of the Long Island Sound and a thick treeline runs along one side of the home, providing an added layer of privacy.
