project brief

This residence on Waterside Lane is a 4,387 square foot, shingle-style four bedroom house designed to fit on a 25,000 square foot lot fronting Woodridge Lake in West Hartford, CT. The house is designed to capture the absolute best and longest views of the lake.

The construction required a rigorous approval process; and a very careful construction process to protect the lake. The house is only 17 feet from the shore of the lake.
The house is a shingle-style 1 ˝ story plan. The floor plan was driven by the curve of the street frontage and takes advantage of the spectacular lake views and sunsets.


Shingle siding and stone veneers wrap the beautiful exterior while the adorning copper gutters, columns, and stone patios exude a sense of old-world craftsmanship. The long, black clad windows and sharp edges lend to a slightly contemporary twist on a timeless design. A grand approach with a curved driveway and columns lead to a grand entrance.

The partially covered, stone terrace at the rear of the home boasts a massive outdoor kitchen complete with a stone pizza oven and fireplace – overlooking the lake, of course.


The open floorplan on the main floor consists of the master suite, kitchen, breakfast nook, wine cellar, dining room, and gracious family room. A large dining room with a butler’s pantry and wine room are designed for entertaining. The second story includes three gracious en-suite bedrooms. Stone clad walls and natural woods harken to the environment and waterfront theme.



This waterfront home is perched on the edge of Woodridge lake in West Hartford, CT. The most incredible sunsets in central Connecticut can be viewed from the covered stone terrace at the rear.
