Dream House

After years of searching, this couple decided to build their perfect house blending old and new in their beautiful Georgian colonial home.

Donald Simonson and his wife searched for the perfect house for years but ended up falling in love with an empty piece of property on a street of established houses, where they decided to build their own dream house. The resulting Georgian colonial is custom fit to their tastes, and the master bedroom suite, like the rest of the house, is the perfect combination of old and new.

To re-create the elegant feel of a four-star hotel, the bed sits under a sculpted ceiling. French doors define each area of the Georgian Colonial bedroom suite without compromising its spaciousness. A contrasting band of walnut is inset into the oak floor, and columns that echo the Federalist-style architecture flank a gas fireplace.

The skylight, set in an alcove above the floor, allows the Islamic and Indian custom tile design featured in front of the whirlpool tub to reflect the natural light. The whirlpool bathtub surround is a mahogany panel corresponding to the cabinetry in this master bath.
