Sheltered from a country road by the folds of its pasture setting, this new, four bedroom house was nestled into a knoll for views of a small pond and the bucolic prospect of a small valley. The massing of the house recalls the forms of local, traditional linked farm houses while the careful detailing of the exterior reduce the apparent volume of the house. A balanced entry front faces the road while significant glazing opens the living space to the terrace and southern light. The planning of the rooms balances an open flow between spaces with elegant spatial definition. The use of natural materials and soft color helps to create a comfortable, relaxed and welcoming home.
