New England Clapboard

Currently under construction, this two story traditional home is set back on the lot enough to provide for a circular driveway while still providing for a large and spacious rear yard complete with pool, pool cabana, and entertaining/cooking area.  Classically arranged with a grand staircase at the Entry and Dining Room and Living Room flanking the Entry, the end of the Foyer now provides access to today’s more common and desirable Great Room concept.  The Great Room has the Kitchen, casual dining, and Family Room that all have either access or views to the large rear yard.  This connects the indoor and the outdoor and is vital to how the owners wanted to live their lives in this house.

 

At 10’, the ceilings on the lower level allow for tall 8’ windows and doors throughout the main level and plenty of light and air.  Centered off the back on the second level and with a vaulted ceiling, the Master Bedroom has a commanding view and presence at the rear.  With a standard 9’ ceiling on the second level, the four bedrooms on this level have plenty of height and volume.  At the wings (over the Garage and the lower Bedroom/Study), the roof form is lower so the spring line at the dormers is 6’-6” and vaults to approximately 11’.  This allows for cozy spaces for the kids’ activities room and a Study/Library on the opposite side.

The interior finishing of this home is another example of casework that is integrated in such a way as to create a complete design approach resulting in a warm and inviting traditional home.  No detail has been overlooked.
