New Homes

The small 1400sf cottage is perched on a rocky outcropping with stunning views over the tidal inlet of Scott’s Cove. The site has now been combined with another parcel that fronts onto Long Island Sound. The property has historical significance as it was once owned by John Frederick Kensett whose famous paintings of the area may be seen at the Metropolitan Museum of Art.

New Homes

The project consisted of the design, detailing and reconstruction of an existing 1,900 square foot barn on Contentment Island, Darien. The 2-storey barn is one of five buildings on the property and was designed to house a Game Room and Bar on the Upper Level. New roof trusses were fabricated from 100-year-old reclaimed Douglas fir and a fieldstone fireplace and chimney were added. On the Lower Level there is a 3-bay Garage and Mudroom entrance.
