This Fairfield, CT home was designed as an ‘upside down’ home originally built on a slab in the 1970s. The owner and his family lived in the house for years limiting themselves to small tweaks and changes before embarking on a large renovation. Since the house was essentially a simple L-shaped shoe box, Bob decided to drape a beautiful looking “gown” over it with the help of sweeping roof lines and intricate detailing throughout the exterior trim. The original home design can still be seen hidden behind the updates and changes. For consistency, the roof lines were repeated in the additions. The clients’ maintained the upside down plan to take advantage of the pond views. The high ceilings of the generous kitchen area and family room provide an open feel perfect for entertaining. The first floor luxury master suite enjoys access to the outdoor patio complete with fireplace.
