Bordering on a 140-acre historic park and preserve this property has 360-degree views of rolling hills and woodlands The client purchased this land because of its tranquil setting and unobstructed countryside views. In keeping with the reason why they fell in love with the land, the property was named Longview. This new house is nestled into the landscape for protection from the elements and to maximize the sweeping views. Outdoor living is very important to our clients so careful consideration to the house’s placement was taken to ensure that the windows and doors could be open as much as possible during the year. With this in mind, the design paid particular attention to sun angles and prevailing winds to maximize this indoor/outdoor enjoyment.
The architecture is reminiscent of the late 18th and early 19th century stone farm houses of the surrounding area. The genesis of the outdoor pool house was based upon a small clapboard cottage that was original to the property.
