Situated on one of New Canaan’s most beautiful streets, this gracious Colonial-style home was designed and built by Fore Group Inc., an award winning custom builder, with an eye toward creating a character-filled house which would combine tradition with cutting-edge design. On the exterior, the town’s requirement to preserve wetlands on the property as well as the desire to raise the site of the house, created an architectural opportunity for a spectacular terraced backyard.
The interior of the house was designed with a traditional Colonial-Style Home layout yet both the 10-foot ceiling height, which afforded space for oversized windows to flood the house with light, and the extensive millwork, speak to the transitional style envisioned in order to keep the house relevant and timeless for years to come.
The interior of this Colonial-Style Home combines the owners’ pieces from past homes along with recent acquisitions to fit their new space. Creative and generous use of wallpaper gives the house personality and life; grasscloth in the living room, an airy geometric pattern in the dining room, which also boasts a gold metallic-painted ceiling and navy studded wallpaper in the powder room. The owners' love of blues and grays creates a tranquil interior and fresh backdrop for the all-white chef’s kitchen. The kitchen is stylistically on-trend with a linear layout that has the cabinetry and appliances along one wall. The oversized island offers sleek, unobstructed room to cook and entertain with views of the pool, pool house and landscape outside.
The basement is the must-see ‘Irish Bar’. The cabinetry is built of mahogany and accented with rustic elements of brick and slate. The pressed-tin ceiling and unique gooseneck faucet adds an authentic bar feel.
This Gracious Colonial-Style home is the best of tradition, livability, style and design for the future.
