Perched on a bluff along the Sakonnet River, this French country house rambles across a historic property in Middletown, Rhode Island. Punctuated by cheerful azure shutters, the whitewashed brick house is slowly revealed through an allée of linden trees lining its picturesque cobblestone drive. The firm undertook an extensive restoration that preserved the original 1930's design and added ancillary wings that expand on the iconic form while integrating seamlessly with the original structure. The historically significant landscape and manicured gardens work in harmony with the surrounding vineyards to complement the ambiance of this reincarnated Normandy style property.
