Conceived as a model home for a new 500-unit sporting club, this 4,500-square-foot home is aimed to capture a sense of the vernacular West Virginia countryside. That theme, primarily visible on the exterior, incorporates natural stone, board-and-batten siding, and careful placement in a woodsy setting. Interiors are more contemporary, but a classical great room dominates the living spaces, with exposed wood ceilings and plenty of daylight.
