Cider Ridge Farm

Wilton, CT

 The sixteen acres of horse pasture envelop a historic homestead with a mature sugar maple allee and fieldstone walls. STIMSON developed and is implementing the masterplan for the property. The intent is to preserve the equestrian heritage of the old farm in a suburban setting. The new main residence, swimming pool with pavilion, perennial gardens, orchard and vegetable garden were carefully inserted into the context of existing fieldstone walls. The effect is a respectful juxtaposition of old-world and contemporary materials. Long perennial garden runs parallel to the main residence offering full seasonal views. Water fountain and sculpture meadow frame the garden at each end. Daily vehicular access has been limited to the periphery of the property. A system of paths offers a variety of pastoral views. The paths move along wetland, woodland and meadows and drape both sides of the property ridgeline.   Collaborators  Beinfield Architects   Photography  Neil Landino
