A weekend residence for a New York couple this 2,800 sq ft home is situated in the heart of the rolling forested hills of Litchfield County. A long drive was cut thru the woods to an open, rocky meadow in the center of the 75-acre parcel. The residence and detached garage draw their inspiration from the shingle style homes of New England. The main house presents 4 different elevations. The entryway with is arched entry, wraparound porch and double gable of the end elevations: and the formal symmetry of the rear yard are prominent features of the design.
The interior is devised as a center hall plan yet large openings between the rooms maintain a contemporary flow to the spaces within. Bright warm colors, wide plank pine floors and molded detailing maintain the spirit of this classic residence.
