Here’s some eye candy to start your day.
Check out this gorgeous shingle-style house overlooking the Long Island Sound in Greenwich, Connecticut.
Even though this home is newly built, the design was influenced by classic shingle-style homes.
It was designed by Douglas VanderHorn Architects to look like it’s been standing for decades.
The architect says:
This late Shingle Style Residence offers impressive views of the Long Island Sound. The stone base, blue shingles, and hipped natural shingle roof create a distinctive composition reminiscent of an architectural precedent nearly one hundred years old.
The Living and Dining Rooms feature subtly elegant paneling and decorative plaster mouldings.
Six bedrooms feature custom mouldings and finely detailed baths.
Special attention was paid to the custom-designed interiors that continue the waterfront Shingle aesthetic.
The overall form was established to ensure all rooms capture views of the Long Island Sound.
