This historic colonial home was spruced up with details that are respectful to the home's heritage while still giving it an updated quality. Inside, the same story is told through a classic, yet modern design that includes an open concept first floor as well as plenty of natural light and functional, stylish spaces.

C.B. Conlin Landscaping: Gorgeous Plan for a Georgian Home
C.B. Conlin Landscaping created a thing of beauty in crafting each detail of the outdoor plan for this stately Georgian home that enhances its beauty and setting. Each shrub, plant, flower, stone element and color choice were carefully selected and staged to balance, formalize and contribute to a point of view--a serene, comfortable and inviting place to call home.
In the dressing room, big bun feet of a Swedish-style armoire lift it off the floor while mirrored panels telescope light and space back into the room. A large tufted ottoman and window seat provide elegant seating.
While the front yard may be small, this home relies on colorful flowering plants to provide a lively outdoor look. Several shrubs and bushes line either side of the entrance, while similar flowers cascade from window boxes and perfectly complement the rust orange shutters.

Start the evening off with cocktails and appetizers seated at this stylish built-in bench where the curved shape makes conversation easy. Call guests' attention to the beautiful brickwork on the domed ceiling above.
Though the exterior details are modest, more emphasis was placed on the entry porch with a decorative balustrade and fluted columns, with the curved roof above.
Two wings with stone facing on either side of the front door ground the house while an angled garage wing responds to the natural contours of the landscape. Daniel Contelmo Architects also wanted to nestle the house at the proper grade allowing for ingress at the top of the slope, egress at the bottom, while keeping the mature tree adjacent to the entry.
A resort inspired backyard is perfect for entertaining lots of family and friends in this tropical vacation home right on the beach. Summers are well spent sitting on the patio sipping drinks and swimming in the pool.
Due to the existing terrain, the basement level opens directly on grade. The rear of the home becomes more informal with the octagonal family room and varying roof lines of the bedrooms on the second floor. Just to the left is the poolhouse and pool.
This Chappaqua property, with its strict setback requirements and a 10 to 12-foot drop-off, posed a design challenge, even with four acres to play with. To accommodate the landscape, the home was designed to have two stories in the front and three in the back, allowing for a walkout basement.
