Transformations of a New England-Style Home with 21st Century Embellishments

A renovation to meet the needs of a modern family lifestyle

Our New Canaan clients loved their home but needed significant updates to bring their environment up to date with 21st Century style, comfort and greater energy efficiency. They asked Titus Built to give their home an exterior facelift, expand their kitchen and perform other improvement projects throughout the home to meet their current lifestyle needs.

Our clients' life is centered around family and entertaining so it was important to them that their home renovation have a good traffic flow. This home is situated on five acres with an exterior pool and pool house. Titus Built was contracted to design, remodel and build an addition to the home with the inside integrating easily to the outside to work well for entertaining.

The new design features a turret addition with upholstery seating where family and guests can relax and mingle while in the kitchen. The design also flows nicely from the inside to a mahogany deck and to the landscape and pool. The new turret adds an abundant amount of natural light and ventilation to the kitchen with 12' high windows. Other details in the kitchen include a variation in depth of base cabinets;

    What a fantastic home. All the woodworking is beautiful. I have a feeling that the mudroom is as large as my kitchen! I love the idea of the built in areas for the dog beds with the feeding area next to it. Bet the dogs like it too.
