COLONIAL REVIVAL RENOVATION, LITCHFIELD, CT
This is an extensive renovation of a large Colonial Revival house built in 1895. The house retains it's original eclectic mix of delicate Adams-inspired Georgian mouldings at the First Floor as well as a beautful Victorian turned stair rail and leaded glass windows. These original details and the exterior facade have been restored. A new Kitchen and Family Room has been installed in the service wing and the Second Floor bathrooms are modernized in a manner sympathetic to the original details. Two of the original Bedrooms have been combined into a Master Suite. The Third Floor maid's rooms were removed in favor of a large open Playloft, a Writer's Studio, an Exercise Room and Spa Bath. A Swimming Pool and a variety of gardens have also been developed on the 2-1/2 acre lot.
