When friends asked us to redesign their home, we were excited about working with them. It would be an interesting, challenging project with people we liked, on a truly beautiful pastoral setting. Having designed a number of projects on their road, we felt comfortable returning to the neighborhood.
The existing house was an unassuming cape, nicely sited but not large enough to accommodate family and guests. It was important for our clients that the new house retain its unpretentious quality, and at the same time, provide plenty of space for family gatherings. Another consideration was the need to maximize the house’s magnificent natural setting with plenty of porch and terrace space, and many large windows to capture copious amounts of light and breezes.
A great amount of care was devoted to analyzing and planning the house’s use and function. As it currently serves as a weekend vacation home, low maintenance was critical—my clients wanted to spend their weekends relaxing, not maintaining the house and property.
The new kitchen design functions well for two, as well as for holiday gatherings of 20. An inviting bedroom suite is situated on the first floor for guests. There are three additional very spacious bedrooms upstairs. Each bedroom has its own bath—though not particularly large, they are richly appointed with natural stone and beautiful tile. Special attention was paid to providing extra wide hallways and 9 feet tall ceilings that serve to keep the home open and airy.
