This beautifully proportioned small house in the country is surrounded by trees and sits on a steep terrain. The owners, a couple with teenaged children, use it as a cottage getaway. The ample fenestration covering most of the exterior facades gives the impression that they are truly living in the forest, with daylight streaming in all day long. Inside, both floors have high ceilings and there’s a large living room where the family can relax in peace. Straightforward design and an adjoining garage make this a real home away from home.
