Connecticut, Cool Listings

Listing photos by Dennis Carbo

It’s hard to believe this home is just two hours from New York City, as its unusual location above a saltmarsh feels more like a moody northwest setting. Located on 1.7 acres in Branford Connecticut, the contemporary house was designed and built just this year by renowned architect Peter Kurt Woerner to take advantage of its site high on a granite promontory. Woerner titled the property “Osprey House & Studio” as a nod to the surrounding marsh wildlife sanctuary that’s home to osprey, geese, ducks, seagulls, hawks, and falcon. Comprised of a 4,800-square-foot main house and a 746-square-foot studio/guesthouse, it’s asking $2,800,000.
