Architect: Peter Paulos and Phil Hubbard
Firm: PH Architects
Location: Redding, CT
Project Type: Replace and Remodel
This gorgeous country estate began by mating an early 1900s carriage house with a separate, turn-of-the-century tollhouse. The tollhouse actually served as the office where travelers would pay to cross the bridge over the Saugatuck River in Redding, Connecticut. The homeowners not only wanted to connect those two historic structures, they also wanted to develop a new front entry, and add a great room, additional bedrooms, two private study rooms, and a three-car garage with a porte-cochere. The finished product was an incredible success, blending the unique character of the original buildings into one complete home. Marvin products seamlessly matched the new design with the original structure. The specific windows and doors chosen mimicked true divided lites.
