The dominant visual element of the arrival court at this Hudson Valley farmhouse is a barn-board-clad tower, which serves as an entry point and links the main wing of the house to the guest quarters. The entry under the tower is like a breezeway with big barn doors on each side.


Inside, it's finished off to resemble a tack room—a space that's well suited for gearing up for the outdoor pursuits that the active, environmentally aware owners enjoy.
