An artist and her husband, recent empty-nesters, renovated their dated New Canaan home to better serve their new lifestyle.
Sitting on a picturesque site, the original house was a collection of rooms with limited views. The kitchen, at the back of the house, had one tiny window. The design challenge was to renovate the house so the owners could enjoy their surroundings, especially the gorgeous pond behind the house.
Adding a Porch along the back of the house created a transition between the house and the yard. Large windows to the new Porch reoriented interior spaces to face the view. Introducing a fireplace in the Kitchen, transformed a functional space to a comfortable haven. Openings between the formal spaces on the first floor were widened to enhance the flow. A new fireplace in the Family Room changed a gloomy space into a cheerful Sitting Room. Fireplaces were also added in the Master and Guest Bedrooms.
A new roof deck over the covered porch extended the Master Bedroom into the backyard. The Master Bath and Dressing Rooms were totally renovated.
