We sought harmony between tradition and today’s modern lifestyles for a property surrounded by historic, famously iconic homes. We explored innovative ways to respect New Canaan’s colonial heritage while recognizing its history-making role in twentieth century architectural design.


This award winning residence presents a classic colonial language of refined yet simple elegance along exclusive Oenoke Ridge Road. A welcoming entry hall with a dramatic twenty-five foot high wall of glass beckons toward a private backyard oasis with an infinity edged pool, modern pool house, and blue skies. Open light filled spaces provide a modern ambiance for family life and entertaining. Large doorways and windows open onto expansive terraces, patios, and lawn, creating inviting relationships between indoors and nature.

Michele Rudolph’s innovative design as architect was honored by HBRACT for the Outstanding Interior/Exterior Feature Award for this innovative published residence.
