Connecticut Private Residence

Greenwich, Connecticut

Interior Design: Karen Houghton
Photography: Larry Lambrecht, Nancy Hill, Steve Turner

Set on a fifteen-and-a-half acre site in Greenwich, this Georgian style residence draws inspiration from the works of early twentieth-century architect Mott Schmidt.  Taking full advantage of the unique topography of the property, the main house sits on a plateau, while stepped gardens lead down a side slope to a pool and tennis complex.  Formal in its aesthetic and detailing, the home modernizes a traditionally formal plan to work with contemporary living.  Private and public spaces split into separate wings and floors, with the lower level housing a theater, playroom, and gym.
