Our clients wanted a custom home that responded to their new status as empty nesters. Their existing home did not accommodate their new life pattern and were fortunate to find a property on one of the most beautiful, historic, park-like streets in the city. The neighborhood has several 1940’s era Georgian, Colonial and Tudor homes along with a few modern homes. This mixture of home styles gave us the context to design the home inspired by charming Old European Tudor but detailed in a more modern styling that also reflected the modern needs of our clients.
The property is narrow along the street but deep which allowed the garage to be placed in the back of the property similar to the other homes in the neighborhood. With the garage on the rear, the architects created a porte-cochere on the side of the main house creating a convenient drop off reminiscent of pre-world war 2 era homes. Between the garage and the main house, a screen porch creates a welcome entry into the house and provides the back drop for the private courtyard and pool. Incorporating the wishes of the clients for an open floor plan, the kitchen, dining and family room has a vaulted ceiling overlooking the courtyard and allowing an immense amount of natural light to enter the space from three sides.
The primary suite is located on the first floor with expansive windows overlooking the park-like street.
