A large, single-family dwelling that features clean lines and, simple, fresh materials for a contemporary look that fits perfectly in a countryside location. An outdoor rear patio and a long-span view from the entryway to the back garden create a soothing connection between house and nature. Visual continuity throughout and several skylights produce an airy, bright principal residence or cottage that stays cozy in winter as everyone gathers around the fireplace.
Entering through an inviting 10′ x 10′ entryway, the discrete fenestration at the front of the house allows visual access from interior to exterior, while sightlines lead the gaze through to the oversized rear windows. The spaces inside the house generously embrace the site, with visual continuity and brightness being the defining features of the flow between the three interior volumes that are connected by glass breezeways. The huge 25′ x 30′ main living space is in the central volumes, and features several skylights. The master bedroom is next to the outdoor patio and guest room, while the upper floor includes two bedrooms, a kids’ play area and a private family room.
