Inspired by the local bucolic architecture that has shaped this community for centuries, this newly built stone country farm house is successfully positioned in the center of a 7-acre rolling site, securing scenic views across a meadow, extending to the neighboring pond and valley below. A conservation easement of almost 3 acres helped maintain a perimeter of mature trees, providing an immediate sense of belonging for the new home. Intentionally intimate garden spaces feature a refined palette blending ornamental structure with native interest. A petite greenhouse provides an anchor within the garden and a place for our clients to explore their passion for gardening. The pool, timeless in its simplicity, floats within the lawn as a serene destination from which to enjoy the full scenic offerings of the site.
