"Exceeding your highest expectations"
Connecticut's Mid 20th Century Power Couple in Fairfield County Real Estate.
While Cameron Clark designed and built many prominent homes and estates in Connecticut especially in Lower Fairfield County, his wife Agnes was designing the gardens for the estates. A true real estate power couple, they were one of a very few teams that changed the aesthetics of our area. Today, their designs have stood the test of time. Mr. Clarke also renovated and added onto older homes and designed the renovations for public and church buildings. The couple was active from the 1920 through the 1950s. They lived in Greenfield Hill where many of his projects were built. Agnes Selkirk Clark was inducted into the Gardening Hall of Fame and won many local and national awards.
The facade of the homes and buildings were designed to draw you in. Once inside the flow was unparelleled beginning with lovely formal entry ways adorned by sweeping and elegant staircases. They all featured large rooms, and every comfort the people of the times enjoyed. Exquisite millwork was one of his hallmarks, including at least two fireplaces with carved mantels.
