Architect and inside designer Robert Couturier has been translating in depth visions into masterful interiors for a long time. So it’s minor shock that his personal dwelling would indulge in those same stylish, modern layout qualities. Set towards the backdrop of North Spectacle Lake in South Kent, the four-bed room residence is surrounded by substantial, formal gardens produced by Miranda Brooks. Couturier made the classically-motivated 4,048 square foot home in 2001 on a 14-acre residence abutting a land trust. The grounds include things like a 1710 guesthouse, two-motor vehicle garage, and Gunite pool. Every single place of the home enjoys possibly views of the non-public lake or gardens.
