The complete renovation and remodeling with extensive additions to this spectacular 1903 New Canaan’s single style home was recently finished and it now exudes elegance with an easy approach.
Originally designed by E.T. Hapgood, the home was gutted to the studs of exterior walls and the additions from the 80’s were demolished. A new interior layout was introduced for all floors except the historical core (foyer, dining room and living room). The size of the house doubled in the course of the project, from 4500sf to 9000sf.
Perfectly sited, with majestic views, this shingle-style home is naturally elegant and grand-in-style.
Before & After Home Renovation: According to the architect, “the break between the original structure is where the garage connector (gallery) ends – the garage/connector wing is the new addition that replaced 80s structure.”
Architectural Details: The detail we see above is a nice double duty form & function piece that is shielding a garage court from the main approach view and complements the curves of the new, 2nd floor walk-out terrace on the other end.
