As seen on season 1 of Sarah Sees Potential, Sarah transformed this once cramped and dated basement into a modern, multi-purpose family room. Rustic, functional decor in sleek blue and gray hues perfectly complements the home's original, wood-burning stone fireplace. For easy entertaining, Sarah added extra storage, plenty of seating and mounted a large flat-screen TV above the mantel.
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.
Sliding glass doors completely open the cottage living room to the swimming pool and patio, creating an indoor/outdoor living space. Comfortable furniture surrounds the gray stone fireplace, and tucked in the corner is a glam bar perfect for entertaining.
Cottage style is casual and authentic, characterized by painted or decorated furniture with graceful lines and weathered finishes, bead board or paneled walls and colors taken straight from a flower garden.
