Architect Louise Brooks is credited for the creative sunroom/conservatory addition to this 50+ year old in-town estate. Working with a company specializing in conservatory construction, Brooks designed the two-level addition, which comprises a window-lined 18’ x 23’ room with an 11’ x 16’ bay and crowned by a glass roof.

Reminiscent of an English style conservatory, this space connects the interiors of the house to the pool and gardens. French doors with transoms connect the conservatory to the patio and pool area. Inner corners and one interior wall of the conservatory are faced with stacked fieldstone, while an antique sink basin and spigot on the stone wall contributes to the vintage ambience and are convenient for watering plants. Floors are antique limestone; they stay warm even in New England winters, thanks to radiant heating installed under the tiles. The stone treatment is repeated on the addition’s exterior, where a poured concrete foundation is covered with Connecticut limestone. A copper cupola trimmed with clerestory windows tops the addition like the uppermost tier of a wedding cake. The square windows with cross muntins are motorized so they can be opened easily for ventilation. Motorized shades on the glass ceiling panels can be adjusted to control the light and keep the room cool in the summer.

Rope lighting installed in the cove molding, antique hanging lantern fixtures, and a variety of table and floor lamps illuminate the conservatory for the family’s many functions, from reading to dinner parties.
