A colonial style Connecticut home is surrounded by a beautiful forest

This Colonial-style countryside retreat was designed as a turn-key property by Chango & Co., located in the historic town of Litchfield, Northeastern Connecticut. The homeowners are a couple with three children looking for a great place to escape on weekends and holidays from their primary residence in Brooklyn, New York.

This beautiful white house of 6,500 square feet is nestled on a heavily forested five acres site. Prior to the renovation, the home felt old-fashioned and formal, in need of a major upheaval to meet the lifestyle needs of the clients. Due to the remote location of the project, the homeowners handed over complete control of all design decisions.

Taking six months to complete, the home is now brimming with personality and charm. Acting as designer and architect for the project, the design team’s top priority was to preserve as much of the character of the home as possible. The kitchen of this Colonial home was completely gutted to create an open floor plan with custom design and finishes.

What We Love: This beautiful Colonial style home provides warm and welcoming living spaces surrounded by a serene countryside setting. A wonderful family getaway from city living, the interiors were designed to promote a feeling of relaxation. We are loving all of the unique details found throughout this home, the project team did a fabulous job of creating a cozy atmosphere for family gathering and entertaining.

A large kitchen island became the focal point to the space, comprised of white oak and topped with a seamless slab of honed Calacatta Caldia marble. The custom cabinets were fully decked out with “a 1,058 pound 5 Oven AGA range and a custom farmhouse soapstone double sink.” The designers opened an exterior wall in the kitchen to give convenient access to a spacious wooden deck for an outdoor dining and living space. All in all, the home is now filled with life and ready to be enjoyed by its new inhabitants for many years to come.
