This renovated home began as a small undistinguished
timberframe and panel structure from the 1970s. The southern orientation of the
house lends itself to passive solar design. Large window also frame a view of
Crotched Mountain in the distance. The design expanded the house and recalls the
elements of classic New England style. A unique aspect of this design is the
lower level main entrance. Previously, the primary entrance to the house was
through sliding doors from the deck. The main level walkway from the second
floor of the garage to the deck is constructed as a roof over the approach to
the main entrance. Inside there is a spacious entrance hall with an inviting
stair to the main level.
The interior is an open plan which uses three levels allowing each room to enjoy
the suns warmth and the views. The main level houses the kitchen, great room and
master suite. Two bedrooms occupy the second floor, while a family room and
entrance hall are on the lower level.
