Widely recognized as an architectural gem in the heart of Stony Creek, this exquisite and boldly modern, shingle-style home is a tour de force of light and space born by the collaborative vision of architects Sandra Vlock and Glenn Arbonies. In one bold move, the architects transformed the original turn-of-century house by realigning the “front” to span across a driveway: taking full advantage of its south-facing views overlooking the Thimble Islands and active village life. Generously proportioned front steps create a feeling of welcome. Pairs of French doors link the wide gallery-like hallway from front to back. The first-floor level includes two bedrooms with one en-suite bath, mud room and plenty of storage. Attention to detail and craftsmanship is everywhere in this 3,500 plus sf home: custom crown moldings, columns and high baseboards, Tischler tilt-turn windows and doors, horizontal reveals in the walls, built-in window seats, cabinetry throughout, maple floors with elegant walnut borders. The lighting is contemporary and a signature element to the interior and exterior. On the second-floor level is the breathtaking open-plan main living area with its large fireplace. Here dining, entertaining, and an over-sized gourmet kitchen enjoy a treehouse-like advantage looking out across the park and harbor beyond through an expanse of windows.
