The exterior facade of this charming coastal cottage was previously a drab, shingled brown. During the whole-house renovation, the designers reconfigured the exterior and lightened the color of the formerly dark green trim, embracing the region's prevailing architectural style and taking maximum advantage of its lush, wooded lot. A sunny brick patio offers a perfect spot for morning coffee.
Floor-to-ceiling windows in the bonus room on top of the garage allow for better views of the yard. The main house, with its modern exterior, contrasts starkly with the cottage look of the carriage house.
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.
This rustic-chic retreat nestled on a snowy Montana mountainside features lots of natural wood and stone accents, industrial design highlights, and a covered outdoor balcony overlooking the beautiful landscape.
Rugged stone steps lead to a personal botanical garden overlooking the mountains. The rustic exterior of the cottage is marked by green trim, wood shingles and a tin roof, and the hardy cottage garden is surrounded by a stone retaining wall.
