Our feature home of the month: Saddle Rock House, a Richardsonian-style American country home, was designed and built in 1914 by the famed Hunt and Hunt Architects for renowned inventor, Thomas Robins, who is best known for inventing the rubber conveyor belt while working for Thomas A. Edison.

Located at the furthest southern point in Stamford, the 1.67-acre property enjoys the finest views of the Long Island Sound horizon, including daily sunrises and sunsets, the Stamford Harbor Lighthouse, and the beckoning Manhattan skyline.

The property is only rivaled in beauty by the home itself, which is crafted with ashlar quarried stone and designed with definitive circular arches framing doorways and windows. The crafted stone was most likely quarried from granite mines in upstate New York, and a Belgian slate roof has protected the residence for over a century.

Known affectionately by Shippan Point neighbors as the “Bear House” for the large bear statue inside the gated entry, this waterfront estate has claimed only four owners in 104 years, and features a new cook’s kitchen with custom cabinetry and granite tops, a four season sunroom with two arched picture windows with water views, a heated salt water pool enhanced by a vast covered stone grotto, 956 feet of direct waterfront,  a full-size, lighted tennis court, and stone guest cottage … this is a property unlike any other.
