2015 HOBI Award Outstanding Fairfield County Custom Home 3,000-4,000 SF

Architect Christian Calemno of Christian Rae Studio and DeRosa Builders teamed up to build this award winning home. Efficiency, elegance, and quality products were implemented in every corner. Sitting on a half-acre lot in Riverside on a private street, the site was perfect for a new custom build. The open floor plan has 9-foot ceiling heights on the 1st, 2nd and 3rd floors with some double story areas as well as a few vaulted ceilings on the second floor. Rooms include: six ensuite bedrooms, six full bathrooms, two half baths, living room, family room, mudroom, dining room, two offices, gym, playroom and kitchen. The house cladding is pre-stained Maibec shingles with a red cedar roof. A gas fired fireplace and stone chimney round out the structure and decorative elements. The kitchen includes hand selected marble and granite countertops throughout. Tiling is a range of limestone and marble and all the flooring is 4”white oak. Additional custom amenities include the heated master bath floor, custom built closets and interior trim such as paneling, wainscoting, coffered ceilings and built-ins in almost every room. A custom designed mudroom, office, laundry, butler’s pantry, home work station and master bedroom built-ins round out the cabinetry.
