Small-Town Charmer

The Murphy family traded city slick for coastal comfort when they moved into this lovingly restored 1785 cottage in Rowayton, Connecticut.

Vintage fixtures, plus exposed original architectural details, create a warm, comfortable mood. Rought-sawn oak planks that have been sanded down and lightly whitewashed are a nod to the house’s age but give it a lighter feel. The late architect Barbara Garfield stripped the house down to its bones, uncovering beautiful original hand-hewn beams that she left as-is to pay tribute to the artisans of the past.
