Set atop a natural rise in the landscape, this classically styled Georgian home is a private and stately retreat. The Georgian style, which has been influencing the vocabulary of New England architecture since the 17th century, was chosen for its stateliness and presence. Classical details embellish the Georgian solid Georgian form, setting up a rhythm of solid and void as the colonnade wraps the two main facades. The interior is softened by gentle curves, a simple color palette, and thoughtful ceilingscapes. The distinctive breakfast room is embedded between the kitchen and family room, wrapped in a wall of glass overlooking the rear lawn.
