Georgian Estate

This Fairfield County home in the traditional Adams-style, with the convenience of a contemporary interior, was designed to look as though it had been standing for generations. A formal entry is flanked by an office and living room, and a large informal kitchen/great room is situated at the rear of the home. A detached garage mimics an old carriage house and takes advantage of the sloping grade to hide a second story and accommodates a total of four vehicles. This design allows the main house to be symmetrical.
