New House on a Hill in Massachusetts

Inspired by a Shaker barn, this new house is beautifully sited with three to thirty mile views in every direction.  A small apple orchard greets you on arrival and the house is surrounded by new stone walls to define the "barnyard."  In keeping with the simple Shaker style, the interior cabinets, detailing, and colors continue a simple balance between contemporary and traditional in an experimental way.  The exterior windows are tall awning type that mimic the barn slat ventilation flaps of tobacco barns in the area.  Also notice the hinged mirrors over the master bath sinks that allow use of mirror or view of distant mountains while at the sink.  The living room fireplace is made of commissioned hand-made tiles.  Approximately 4,500 s.f.
