Equestrian Estate

West Tennessee

The priority in designing this home was understanding the owner's life patterns. Tailoring design to how they approach their daily routine is the number one factor in developing a perfect, custom floor plan. After establishing a proper understanding of lifestyle,  the priority shifted to capturing and emphasizing the property's natural beauty. These priorities created a beautiful, unique home with an emphasis on hosting events and entertaining friends and family. The home is adaptable to accommodate significant charity events and intimate family gatherings without losing any of its charms. This was done by designing multiple living quarters connected via galleries for art and breezeways that provide captivating views of art. Subsequently, the passage between rooms enthralls visitors throughout every step of the home without sacrificing intimacy for connectivity. All living spaces feature French doors leading to porches or terraces that allow ease of movement between interior and exterior spaces, facilitating small and large gatherings. The multiple quarters include the private owner's suite, primary indoor and outdoor living spaces, in-law suite, and staff suite.


The estate style is based on the owner's preference for low-country French colonial architecture. With an understanding of French colonial architecture, the home incorporates proper materials, scale, and proportion to every part of the façade. Carefully studied window patterns, column size, placement, and adequate roof pitch all contribute to a classic and timeless façade that epitomizes French colonial architecture.
