William Pitt Sotheby’s International Realty Listing at 549 Oenoke Ridge in New Canaan Wins Two Home Building Industry (HOBI) Awards

New Canaan, Conn. (January 8, 2019) — William Pitt Sotheby’s International Realty announced today that its exclusive listing at 549 Oenoke Ridge in New Canaan, Connecticut, listed with The Sneddon Team, was the recipient of two 2018 Home Building Industry (HOBI) awards. The property won first place in the following categories: Best Spec Home $4-5 million and Outstanding Interior Exterior Feature for its curtain wall.

The HOBI Awards are Connecticut’s most prestigious housing industry program, acknowledging distinction in new construction, land development, remodeling, sales and marketing and home financing. A panel of HOBI judges with expertise in home building selects the winners each year by reviewing applications submitted by Home Builders Association (HBA) members. The judges then travel the state for several days, touring selected homes and neighborhoods before making final decisions.

Designed by Riverside Design & Build LLC of Pound Ridge, N.Y., the 9,225 square foot property includes six bedrooms, as well as six full bathrooms and two half baths. A gated entry with field stone walls leads to the custom built home, which is on the market for $4,750,000. Special amenities include an elevator that serves each of the property’s four floors, 10-foot ceilings and four fireplaces. The kitchen features a double island and a butler’s pantry. Outside, a stone terrace and patio overlook a large and private backyard.

The builders of this distinguished home were officially honored at the annual HOBI Awards Dinner on November 13th, 2018 in Southington, Conn.

“The Oenoke Ridge Road residence features a 25-foot high wall of glass looking out to a disappearing edged pool as well as terraces and patios,” said Michele Rudolph, an architect for Riverside Design and Build. “The effect is to create a relationship between interior spaces and exterior landscape. We’ve had a fantastic response to the house from knowledgeable real estate brokers – it’s really been exciting.”

“It’s an honor to represent an award-winning home that was recognized in a highly competitive field,” said Bonnie Sztam from the Sneddon Team. “We are truly proud to showcase a property that looks and feels like no other. Receiving a distinguished award such as the HOBI completes this honor.”
