Located near Hartford, Connecticut, about midway between Boston and New York City, this recently listed home appears to hover some 50 feet above the ground at one end. The early 1980s structure was designed by local architect Wilfred Armster, who is known for his unconventional designs and has designed several homes with architectural references to bridges.
Known locally as the Cedar Bridge House, the home shares similarities with other bridge-like designs by Armster—including the Farmington Bridge House and the better-known Bridge House in Ann Arbor, Michigan.
Inside, the main section of the Cedar Bridge House stretches some 2,100 square feet across a linear floor plan. Windows along both sides of the structure overlook the surrounding treetops, while expansive skylights provide additional views and natural light. Wood-clad ceilings and hardwood floors create an elongated feeling of space in the main living areas.
Outside, the home is sited within a clearing and surrounded by a 3.2-acre lot. The two decks—one at each end of the structure—offer a combined 1,800 square feet of outdoor space. There’s also a hot tub, and enough room for an outdoor kitchen. The home is currently listed for $530,000, and it comes with some of the furnishings—keep scrolling to see more.
