To add charm to the classic Tudor, a stone turret is incorporated, providing a whimsical, rustic element to the exterior. The durability of the exterior materials ensures that they will not need to be replaced for many years. Reclaimed brick is used for some of the floors and reclaimed slate for the roof to match the existing materials. Existing walls and floor lines are used in the design of the renovation to minimize the need for additions.
A dramatic curved window and turret-like extension give this stone and clapboard home fairy tale curb appeal. The stone driveway features an artful inlaid design and offers plenty of extra parking for guests. The four-level house offers dramatic views across Long Island Sound, from nearly every room.
Wide stone steps and a porch that runs the length of the house make this transitional home, beautifully lit for night, feel all the more welcoming. An unusual round turret and balcony sits between two more traditional gables.
The circular wine room below the rear turret of this Tudor-style home is filled with custom built-in wine racks and stone shelves. Natural stone is used on most of the walls in the space, and reclaimed brick covers all of the floors. The entire space is "reclaimed" since it replaces what was once a garage and basement. Very little heat (or cooling) is used to make these subterranean spaces function properly.
