This colonial reproduction, entirely designed by Tim Egan, sits proudly on a horse farm in Litchfield, Connecticut. It is designed to have simple lines and give the feeling of being lofty yet well-grounded. Graduated window sizes from the first to the second floor move your eye up to a detailed cornice, then a slate roof. The roofing slate, obtained from the New York/Vermont border, was installed by our own team of craftsmen. In the case of this majestic home, a “graduated” pattern was used for the slate with variable width and length slates to give a thicker, built up look. In addition, the random pattern of the slates down plays some of the formality of the trim detail so that this home is well suited for the farm estate.
