This historic American Shingle Arts and Craft Style home in the Estate District of Greenwich, CT is known as the Tubby House. Named for William Tubby, the home’s architect and original resident, the home was built in 1918.
At just under three-acres, the Tubby House residence, with a home designed and owned by architect William Tubby, boasts a landscape that alludes to untamed beauty of the owner’s native Australia, but is decidedly American in palette and structure. American trees, shrubs, grasses, and forbs grow in abundance throughout the property. It features an entry garden with an intricate paving pattern of cut bluestone squares with elegant, red-brick borders, and a fountain. A lily pool serves as a home for aquatic flora and fauna and a stream surrounding the property is filled with native wetland plantings suited to the ecologically sensitive area.
