Challenging site restraints helped to define the design of this new residence set on a one-and-a-half acre peninsula at the mouth of the Five Mile River. Exemplifying old maritime New England architecture, the shingle style home accommodates a family of six. At its center, a double-height space containing the great room, dining room and kitchen creates a gathering place used to entertain. Natural light filters through the French doors and windows, inviting the beauty of the site into the home while covered porches surround the residence and afford stunning views of the harbor and Long Island Sound. The residence was featured in At Home in Fairfield County, Custom Home and Connecticut Cottages & Gardens magazines.
