Nestled on the shore of Goose Pond below a towering oak tree, this two bedroom house blends traditional building forms with modern detailing. The traditional form of the structure reflects the context of adjacent camps while the spare, modern detailing relates to the owners’ interest in contemporary art and design. Ten foot ceilings and large windows bring views of the pond into the light filled interiors. High performance insulation, triple glazed windows and an energy recovery ventilation system result in a house that is comfortable at any time of the year. Durable materials and thoughtful detailing result in a low maintenance home well suited to a relaxed lifestyle on the pond.
