This classic colonial home sits on 1.65 acres in Fairfield, Connecticut. Boasting a white exterior and gray shingle roof, the home features two red brick chimneys and a front-of-house driveway. The barn style pool house is located just behind the home, providing an extra spot for guests or for simply relaxing before heading outdoors.
Wanting to add a two-story pool house, carriage house and an all-white garden to their lot, the owners of this charming Colonial turned to Deborah Cerbone Associates for help. Using gates, fences, fountains, flowers and more, the landscape architects created their dream outdoor space.
Charming details were added to the exterior of this 1980s colonial home, creating major curb appeal. A curved driveway, which wraps around the front and leads to a three-car garage on the side of the house, completes the classic look.

This home would fit in perfectly anywhere in the South, but is actually located in the suburbs of San Francisco. The owners of the custom-designed residence both have Southern roots and wanted a house for their family that felt familiar.

The porch, which is connected to the family room by sliding French doors, features a sitting area, fireplace and dining area for 10. Both side yards — one housing the kids' play area and the other boasting an open terrace — are visible from the porch.
This welcoming two-story home features a contemporary addition with two styles of retaining walls – bluestone and ashlar granite – separating the house from the driveway and defining the borders of the property.
The addition to the back of the house puts a fun twist on the traditional colonial design. This space is constructed with tons of windows to allow natural light into the space, while also allowing the garden to become a part of the home's entertaining spaces.
