Barnyard Retreat

Designing this rural home was all about creating a serene retreat.

Capturing the vastness of the rual setting was a big goal.

The best panoramas face west, so serious sun protection was in order in the form of a sloped screen.

The pool is on the west side of the house, to get the benefit of views and afternoon sun.

Sliding doors connect first-floor living, an office, and a pool bath to an expansive bluestone deck, the pool, and an integrated spa

Another important object was to create cozy spaces that balanced the expansive views.

Simple gables, clean lines, and minimalist detailing emphasize the agricultural inspiration for this rural haven.
