In the heart of Salisbury, Connecticut, lies a marvel of modern architectural design and meticulous craftsmanship—102 South Shore Road. This property, completed in 2009, is nestled on the Twin Lakes, a locale revered for its panoramic views of Mounts Everett, Riga, and Tom, and the storied stone tower near Camp Isola Bella. The story of this residence begins with a pursuit of perfection. The owners, after an exhaustive exploration of Connecticut’s lakes, chose this idyllic spot for its unrivaled lakefront, sandy beach without drop-off, and the mesmerizing views it offered.

The architectural vision for the home was realized by Ben Palagonia, a New York-born architect educated at the School of Industrial Art and Pratt Institute. Palagonia, known for his work with icons like Ludwig Mies van der Rohe and Eric Mendelsohn of the Bauhaus School, infused the property with a blend of modern sensibilities and traditional influences. His designs include a homage to European architectural marvels with a “stone tower” that is not just a structural element but a narrative anchor of the home, echoing the nearby historic tower on the lake’s island.

This artist-designed home is a symphony of materials and forms. The Vermont slate roof, complemented by copper accents and decorative chimney pots, harmonizes with the blend of field stones and slate that characterizes the building’s facade. The craftsmanship extends to the interiors, where custom woodwork, antique light fixtures, and Marvin insulated windows and doors create a seamless blend of elegance and comfort.

The main floor features an open-plan layout with a 12-foot coffered ceiling, ensuring that views of the lake and mountains are omnipresent. The oversized wood-burning fireplace in the living room, with its granite stone surround and walnut slab mantle, is a focal point that invites relaxation and contemplation. The kitchen, a masterpiece of functional art, boasts honed Brazilian marble countertops, black granite, and high-end appliances, including a built-in Mendota gas fireplace.

Ascending the home’s bespoke white-oak staircase, which overlooks the lake, leads to the second floor where privacy and luxury converge. The “owner’s suite zone” is a sanctuary comprising the primary bedroom, office, and children’s bedroom, all offering expansive lake views. The primary bath doubles as a steam room with rain showers and body jets.

The third floor, at the top of the stone tower, provides a bird’s-eye view of the entire lake, serving as a multifunctional space that could be an office, reading room, or fitness area. This level is also pre-wired for electronic games, ensuring a clutter-free environment for play and relaxation.

The property’s outdoor spaces are as meticulously designed as the interiors. The expansive granite patio, with its octagonal covered section featuring a hand-cut stone fireplace, blends seamlessly into the infinity-edge spa, offering an immersive experience with the lake. The white sand private beach and the stone border serve as a natural seating area, perfect for sunset viewings.

​In terms of systems and security, the home is equipped with a smart lighting system, an intercom throughout all floors, a central multi-zone sound system, and a FloLogic automatic water leak detection system, among others. The energy-efficient design includes a hydro-based forced air HVAC system and radiant heating throughout various areas, including the spa, the entire patio, and front walkways.
