This is an extensive remodel that turned a spec house into a charming French provincial home with a rustic exterior. Only the stone entry surround with its curved pediment hints at the sophisticated interiors. An elegant foyer, paneled formal rooms, rusticated classical columns, ebonized wood floors, and special plaster treatments convey the feel of a city person going to the country. The family room and loggia revert to the French provincial theme with beamed ceilings in woods of warm tones and more rustic detailing. The owners’ contemporary art collection juxtaposes elegantly with the traditional architecture.
