His reputation for the highest quality workmanship has attracted an impressive clientele that includes famous authors, actors, and CEOs of major corporations.
Over the past twenty-five years, Michael has built or remodeled over seventy custom-designed, one-of-a-kind residences in the Westport/Weston area, as well as Greenwich, Fairfield, and Block Island, RI.
In the early 1970s, as the founder of Good Earth Homes in Westport, he gained recognition as an innovator for creating new homes from transplanted antique Vermont barns. His own home in Weston has been featured in the New York Times, as well as Country Home Magazine. The house was constructed from the frames and siding of three former barns.
In 1976, MG Builders in Westport was founded, with Michael as principal. The company focused on the construction of meticulously detailed homes in the Westport and immediate areas.
The business has evolved to Michael Greenberg & Associates, reflecting a widened scope of involvement in all phases of design and construction. As a means of aesthetic, creative, and budgetary control, architectural work is now completed “in house” by a staff of licensed professionals. Design becomes reality through a collaboration of these creative minds and the area’s finest stone and wood craftsmen.
Throughout their history, a prevailing philosophy has held true—to produce homes which are true to an unyielding commitment to excellence in design and craftsmanship. The goal has been to first find a great location—hilltop sites with spectacular views, sites surrounded by natural terrain and dense forest, or waterfront properties—and then custom design a home that complements the context of the site. An emphasis on unique locations and uncompromising designs is what has separated Michael Greenberg & Associates from all the other builders in Fairfield County.
Michael has lived in the Westport/Weston area for most of his life, and has been a student of both philosophy and architectural engineering.
