Hilltop Georgian | Details
Perched on a secluded wooded hill, this new house pays homage to 18th century Georgian architecture while clean contemporary lines situate it squarely in the 21st century. A hilly drive leads to a courtyard surrounded by a brick knee wall, lending the 6,000 square-foot house a sense of place. Formal arrival spaces are complemented by informal ones in the rear, ideal for our clients and their young family. Two symmetrical wings on either side of the main entrance provide a beautifully balanced structure. The house is clad in buck joint clapboard, a neoclassical treatment that creates an unbroken, elegant façade as well as a textural contrast to the clapboard-clad wings.
