Depot House by Gray Organschi Architecture:
“The Shepaug River Valley Railroad, which ran along the Bantam River in the late 19th century, stopped at this location, when the web site of a small regional train depot. We saved and reinforced the present 19th century rubble foundation, utilizing it as the base for this new property. 2 easy
gable structures, oriented perpendicularly to every single other, generate room for a huge open strategy between them and refer, through their forms, to neighboring barns and to the region’s agricultural heritage.
The home interior is lined with bleached pine kitchen, dining, living and family rooms overlap each and every other and generate a wealthy series of spatial experiences that accommodate relaxed weekend residing. The living spaces open onto a lap pool which is edged in stone-lined gabion baskets and is surrounded by a cedar deck. Outside spaces provide views across the meadow to the Bantam River.”
