Lakeville, CT

Set on 33 acres of rolling meadow, wetlands, and woodland, this modern “farmhouse” has an open plan, vaulted ceilings, and generously-sized living spaces. Conceived as an “L-shaped” plan around an exterior terrace facing the small pond, it is designed for comfort and ease of movement. The chef’s kitchen features a large island, custom cherry cabinetry, and high-end appliances. The two-story living room has an office space mezzanine with a glass floor and built-in seating as well as a towering stone chimney with “Rumford” fireplace. In addition to the architecture and interior design, Gertler & Wente Architects designed the structure of the surrounding gardens.
