Soundview Lane Estate

New Canaan, Connecticut

Local Office developed a master plan for this property in New Canaan, Connecticut, and oversaw the implementation of the initial phase of planting. A grand sweeping lawn extends from the formal back terrace, gesturing toward Long Island Sound beyond. At one edge of the lawn is an evergreen allee that serves to screen oblique views into the neighboring yards without blocking their views through to the Sound. At the other edge is a mix of native trees and ferns. Over time, the adjacent forest has begun to re-establish a presence on the site, blurring the edges of the property and knitting it back into its surroundings.
