The tradition of Shingle Style design is strong in the Hudson Valley. We were asked to expand on the form by a young and growing family. The heavily wooded site included a beautiful pond which became the main focus of the home.
The connection between the indoors and outdoors is reinforced by generous windows, covered entries, and a screened porch which overlooks the pond. Eyebrow dormers punctuate the roof and allow light into the master bedroom and attic.
Fireplaces anchor each end of the home and form an axis from the living room to the family room. Interior rooms flow into each other along the axis allowing easier supervision of small children and plenty of room for family gatherings.
