East Haddam

The clients, both avid sailors, loved their brick terrace overlooking the Connecticut River, and wanted to enclose the area to make it part of their home, to use as a place to host gatherings and family celebrations. We created a multi-level space so that no matter where you stand, the view is amazing. The kitchen now overlooks boat-inspired teak built-in sofas, with a radiant-heat tile floor that extends out to a covered terrace, with wide granite steps down to the pool. Because the home is in an historic district, we presented the design to a review committee and won approval with no revisions. A copper rain chain, arched chimney, and a new paved terrace complete the finely detailed exterior.
