The design approach for this custom colonial family home seamlessly blends the timeless elegance of classic, traditional architecture with contemporary aesthetics and functionality. Overcoming the challenge of a large sloping lot, we utilized this condition as an opportunity to create a dynamic walk-out to a beautiful pool and patio area in the rear of the house, creating an inviting entertainment space. The exterior façade features a mix of white brick and siding, complemented by a traditional front roof line. The roof steps down with the lot at the back of the home, accentuated by dormers that add height to the rooms and create a secondary massing effect.
Inside, a thoughtfully designed floor plan features a center hall colonial layout, spacious living areas, a private office with access to an exterior terrace, and an inviting walk-out basement perfect for pool activities. The elegant interior showcases exquisite details such as paneling in the stair hall, unique built-ins with bookshelves and hidden drawers, stained mahogany office walls and a luxurious wine room tucked away below the stairs. A serene, screened porch and lower-level covered space leads out to the pool, accented with dramatic arches in the outdoor living area that beautifully frame views of the landscaped rear yard.
