A wonderful project in Greenwich, CT that earned Robert A. Cardello an “A-List” Award for Historical Home Renovation in 2013. The house sits on the water in the Byram section of Greenwich, CT. At the start of the project, it was clear that the house had been poorly maintained over the years. However, one couldn’t ignore the character, interesting details and millwork that had been created by the original designer. Oddly, Robert Cardello had been invited to renovate the house in 1999 by a previous owner. The proposed plan at that time included a dramatic stair tower and sweeping roofs, but the project was put on hold. Twelve years later, the new owner contacted Cardello Architects. Upon reflection, Cardello found his earlier drawings to be uncharacteristic of the main house and the client’s desires so he went in a different direction. This time around the re-design was more sympathetic to the original architect’s ideas. Beautiful detailing and finishing were used to re-create this Gatsby-like waterfront estate. Offering over 10,000 sf, the jewel of the project is in the exquisite detailing and millwork.
