Norwalk, CT

This design features a one-story great room addition with cathedral ceilings and a second floor addition comprising a master bedroom suite and fitness area. The home is situated in a classic neighborhood with tall, shady tree lined streets. Both additions take advantage of views overlooking a gracious pond behind the house. Framed by columns, the great room steps down from the main floor of the house and the ceiling rises to add drama. The master suite includes a generous ‘his’ and ‘hers’ walk-in closet and dressing area, a fitness area with clerestory windows, a bathroom with whirlpool tub and skylights above, and the bedroom with vaulted ceilings and lots of windows. Atypical in this project, paint colors, interior finishes, and specialty millwork were accomplished by the client’s themselves who had clear ideas and special talents. (photos by Jody Dole)
