This residence evokes the Shingle Style with an Old World feeling both inside and out. Sited proudly on a rise with views toward an expansive lawn, the home quietly commands the site. The approach to the house is by means of a driveway that follows the hillside border between the rolling lawn and a mature forest. Designed for gracious entertaining and with attention to detail, a central gallery links the major areas of the house. In contrast, the more private living spaces allow for a relaxed and intimate family lifestyle. The views are spectacular enough that the client requested a rooftop terrace and widow’s walk. 3-D modeling at the concept development stage enabled the clients to accelerate the design process with confidence and clarity of vision.
