These clients ran into some troubles with a previous architect and from word of mouth they hired our firm to reassess the project and produce our own design for an extensive renovation and additions to a historical house. We worked closely with the clients to create a remarkable Connecticut country home that met their family’s needs.
The home was an early 1900’s home that the clients wanted to update without losing the historical details and atmosphere. There was an extensive addition to the home in which we referenced a tollhouse that was previously located on the site. The tollhouse was a small building where travelers would pay a toll to cross the bridge over a river, which crossed the adjacent property. The interior of the tollhouse addition contains a guest suite and a billiards room.
We also strategically connected it to the main structure in a way that it was part of the home, but still had a flavor of its own individuality. Other additions and renovations include a potting room, 200 bottle wine room, new bedrooms, a great room/recreation room, three car garage, porte-cochere and pergola.
This New England Estate portrays a very beautiful and breathtaking home that can entertain large groups and also retain a calm and comfortable country atmosphere.
