An opportunity to live surrounded by the impeccable talent of a leading architectural firm and award winning builder resides within the transformed walls of this custom-built contemporary home in Darien, Conn. Architecturally unique to this quintessential New England town, the masterpiece residence, which embraces its pristine, natural surroundings with open spaces and other light-capturing features, is listed with Darien agent Molly O’Brien Watkins, and offered at $3,395,000.
Design plans were formulated by su11 architecture+design, a Brooklyn-based architecture and design company known for its use of innovation and unique, customized solutions. Regarded by many as a leader of its generation, this young, yet highly successful firm has projects exhibited in numerous reputable venues such as the Museum of Modern Art, Walker Art Center and Carnegie Museum of Art. After developing a vision for the design of 364 Hollow Tree Ridge Road, the firm then handed its architectural plans off to the acclaimed contractor Prutting & Company Custom Builders, LLC, who completed the home’s total re-construction in 2011. This firm was founded in 1975, and has over the years, worked with several prominent architects to complete hundreds of high-end projects, particularly a number of groundbreaking, contemporary homes, throughout Fairfield and Westchester Counties. The exceptional expertise and craftsmanship of the team has been recognized with various awards including Luxe Magazine’s 2016 Gold List Honoree, two Connecticut Cottages & Gardens Innovation in Design Awards in the categories of Architecture and Builder Recognition, two Moffly Media A-List Awards, the highly acclaimed HOBI Award and more.
With the tireless work and remarkable talent of both firms, a cutting edge and thoughtful design now graces this dramatic, 6,800+ square-foot modern residence, focusing on home entertainment and hospitality. The five-bedroom, four full and two half-bath, completely rebuilt home, lies on nearly three acres of tranquil, retreat-like land overlooking a pond. Designed to appreciate the scenic surrounding elements of nature, the residence contains ample open space and an abundance of glass, resulting in a light-filled, brilliant atmosphere. Highlights include a chef’s kitchen, two offices, a dining room/library, sitting area and living room, both with a fireplace, as well as an adjacent cocktail lounge complete with a custom back-lit bar perfect for entertaining family and friends. The residence additionally offers a luxurious master suite with a sitting room and balcony, a private guest/nanny suite, playroom and two laundry rooms. Energy-efficient geothermal heat and a generator complete the residence, ensuring year-round comfort and functionality.
“The custom design and thought that went into the renovation of this home is remarkable,” said Watkins. “It’s a modern masterpiece, full of unusual features and sleek finishes. Everything about it is one-of-a-kind. The home’s setting additionally offers a sense of tranquility and privacy, yet conveniently resides just moments from the town and public transportation.”
