Summer Splendor

Simple sweeping rooflines and clearly articulated horizontal elements ground an unpretentious and elegant house to its country landscape. A custom oversized door with an 18th century leaded glass window opens into an elliptical foyer with a domed ceiling. The subtle curves of the foyer unite adjacent spaces and frame a south view toward extensive gardens. High ceilings and abundant light create an ideal setting for a modern informal lifestyle.

Passive solar design features, LEED certified wood products, stone sourced from the property, and a geo-thermal heating/cooling system are some environmentally aware features that minimize the carbon footprint of this sizeable house.

Interior spaces flow seamlessly outdoors onto terraces and an exquisitely landscaped property. Riverside Design and Build created a shallow toddler’s pool which mimics a rock spring and appears to supply the larger pool’s water. An adjacent rock garden features a re-circulating stream, creating soothing sounds of running water. Architectural artifacts give unique character to a hot tub with a waterfall and a wall fountain built with an early 19th century copper repousee lion’s head.

A joyful interaction between indoor and outdoor living give this sophisticated house a laid back elegance. We are delighted to have provided the interior design for this published residence.
