Modern farmhouse, Rowayton, CT

Project location: Rowayton, CT
Project type: Custom Home
Completion date: 2013
Architect: Brad DeMotte, R.A.

This was a custom designed house for a couple who lived in a house on the same property which had suffered damage from a hurricane. The house had been repaired numerous times, but being in a flood zone they decided to tear down the house & build a new house in it’s place.

Their desire was to build a modern farmhouse that was clean, classic & timeless both inside & out. The 4 bedroom house is 4000 SF over 2 floors, with some additional living space in the attic.

The lot is very small being only 100’x100′, so there’s little side yard or back yard. A large bluestone terrace in front of the house is the primary outdoor living space which includes a fire pit. An adjacent covered porch has space heaters in the ceiling, extending it’s use.

Exterior materials consist of cedar clapboard siding, asphalt shingle roofing, standing seam copper roofing & PVC trim.
