February 1, 2019
It was a silver anniversary celebration at the annual Home Builders & Remodelers Association of Connecticut’s Home Building Industry Awards (otherwise known as the HOBIs) dinner this past November. A record crowd of 860 housing-industry professionals gathered to honor the winners in a variety of categories, including custom homes, spec homes, remodeled homes and much more (130 HOBIs were presented this year). Here, we highlight just a handful. For a complete list of winners, go to hbact.org/hobiawards.
To create Windover, an enclave of eight bespoke homes in Norwalk, Silver Heights Development worked with the contours of the land, the pond, the mature perimeter hardscape and wetlands. The residences are nestled into 12 acres and surrounded by private fencing, stone walls, mature trees and specimen plantings, plus have access to the private four-acre pond and Cranbury Park. Designs include four Saltbox and four Courtyard style homes. The traditional facade gives way to spacious interiors with luxury features, branded fixtures and modern aesthetics. All have first-floor master suites, open floor plans and high ceilings. A homeowner’s association fee includes snow plowing, landscaping, irrigation, water, maintenance of wood roofing and siding, common grounds and more. (Architecture: Beinfield Architecture)
