Home is a place where when you go there they will always take you in.
Set on 13 acres of raw land, this house is sited where cattle once grazed near a “barway” on the state line between New York and Connecticut. The driveway was the beaten pathway through the woods. So the house is designed to have several fronts, as you approach it, to the barway, and to a glacial rock outpouring, beautiful to see in the winter.
The interior space are compactly organized around a central stair winding adjacent to a double height space. The ceiling heights are modulated between 8 feet and 12 feet to provide both a sense of coziness for the bedrooms and grandeur for the living room and dining room.
