Previously unused or neglected spaces have been repurposed and new spaces have been reimagined to create this imaginative floor plan.  Living rooms, breakfast “nooks”, master sitting rooms, oversized foyers, wasteful volume ceiling spaces have been traded-in for the Outdoor Room, Entertaining Bar, Inglenook, Dressing Rooms, Closets, Guest Quarters, etc.

The floor plan demonstrates a dimensional sensitivity that infuses the home with airiness and natural daylight.  The floor plan is open and spacious comfortable for entertaining while maintaining a cozy scale. Never too big as to be wasteful or cavernous, but not too small to lose the sense of a generous room.  Other priorities include: large and varied storage capacity; blending of indoor and outdoor spaces and flexible space over the private garage and day lighted lower level.

 
 
 
 

FEELING SPACIOUS, NOT CAVERNOUS

Open floor plans, ten foot first floor (12’ Family Room) and nine foot second floor ceilings, vaulted bedroom ceilings, wide hallways and the open stair tower demonstrate a dimensional sensitivity that serve to infuse the home with a sense of airiness and natural daylight. His and Her bathrooms provide both husband and wife with separate, but sensible-sized baths.

BRINGING OUTDOORS, INDOORS

The outdoor screened room opens to an expansive family room via a 14’ folding glass door, blurring the line between indoors and out. When open, the doors fold virtually out of sight allowing fresh air into this unparalleled and dramatic space.

Curtain walls of glass in the family room allow unobstructed views to the woodlands beyond.  The elevated and partially covered deck allows for expanded entertaining, potted plants and sunbathing. On the second floor, the Master Balcony allows private outdoor living.

ENTERTAINING FRIENDS AND FAMILY

The Entertaining Bar is incorporated into the first floor plan and is complete with space for wine and beverage refrigeration and ice maker, making this the ultimate party hang-out space. The Entertaining Bar opens to the Inglenook and Music Conservatory – bring wine, fire and music together to the delight of your guests.
