Located in a quiet cove in East Memphis, this timeless and intimate residence exudes craftsmanship and attention to detail in all architectural and materials design choices. The footprint and layout are designed to maximize the lot area and rear yard enjoyment, with the friend’s entry located in a wing oriented diagonally towards the house. The cozy front entry, with a limestone surround, pulls the guests into the foyer characterized by floor to ceiling 2 story windows.
Our clients wanted to have some separation between the main rooms but the well thought layout allows the spaces to seamlessly flow into each other. The dining area features large windows to bring in the afternoon sunlight, while the living area opens to the rear yard and pool with oversized full glass French doors. Ceilings make a statement in this house, with dropped decorative beams in the living room and a barrel vault underling the transition from the foyer into the living. The vaulted ceilings in the primary bedroom and screened porch expand the rooms volume and emphasize the vertical lines. The screened porch is perfectly integrated into the outdoor space and blends beautifully with the architecture, creating a private courtyard ideal for hosting friends and family gatherings. Unique design gems like quaint niches, hidden hallways and secret doors are located throughout the house and provide a sense of mystery and surprise.
