One-of-a Kind Sustainable Design
This custom home was built on the site of a barn, which was descontructed prior to beginning the new home's construction. The wood from the barn was reclaimed and used for the newel posts on the main staircase and to make custom herringbone flooring in the family room. Both mantles were hewn from trees on the property, as well.
Exterior Home Design
The exterior of the home is cladded with crisp white siding by James Hardie, known for its sophisticated looks and outstanding durability. The front porch is accentuated by a matte-black metal awning that gracefully extends the length of the home's interior rooms providing shade from the sun and a huge helping of style complimented by the home's black, metal-framed windows. Centered on the porch is a custom, double front door crafted from a richly-stained mahogany.
BESPOKE FINISHES THROUGHOUT
The rough-hewn timber beams in the hearth room a touch of rustic grandeur to the home. Flanking the central fireplace are custom-built bookcases, a showcase for treasures and cherished mementos. The fireplace itself features a mantle crafted from a tree on the property, infusing the space with a story and warmth. Sunlight bathes the room through transom windows strategically placed above the shelving, enhancing the sense of openness and connection to the outdoors while French doors on both sides of the room open into two outdoor living spaces overlooking the tranquil wooded lot.
