New Classic 23 – Back

From the outside, this country home is striking for its juxtaposition of traditional natural wood and local stone. Oversized windows allow light to flood the interior spaces, while its location on a sloping lot offers fantastic views of the surrounding countryside. The whole house forms an angle that embraces a huge private patio at the lower level and features two volumes, one a main living space on two floors with a fireplace as a focal point, the other a broad horizontal volume connected to the garage.

A protruding stone wall marks the home’s entrance, while gabled ends and traditional wood exterior finishes provide the country feel that dovetails so well with BONE’s contemporary technology. A few steps lead to the walk-out basement containing an open-plan kitchen, a living room with double-height ceilings and a dining area, plus two bedrooms and laundry space. Another staircase leads up to the main floor that features a substantial master bedroom overlooking the lower level.
