In the Country

Arts and Crafts House on a Hill

1/6

Location: Mendon, NY

Our client found this rural site in Mendon, New York overlooking wooded wetlands many years prior to building. The house features a timbered great room made from locally sourced larch, a species of conifer that drops its needles seasonally. A wide plank cherry floor compliments the warm color of the timbers. An interesting but subtle detail can be found in the tapered side walls of the bedroom dormers. A stone terrace is accessed off the kitchen for entertaining and grilling.

Greenside Craftsman

1/5

Location: Canandaigua, NY

This home is situated on the lot in order to take advantage of views across a green and its rolling fairway of a Robert Trent Jones designed golf course carved into wooded hills above Canandaigua Lake. The slope of the property suggested a side entry layout which also allowed plenty of sunlight into the open floor plan. A three season room pavilion built out over the hillside allows great views of the scenery late into the colorful fall found in upstate New York.

Fly-In Fly-Out Timber Frame Lodge

1/4

Location: Western New York

This home is built alongside a small airport to allow the owner to walk to his airplane hanger. The walls and windows provide an extra measure of sound control to help keep the house peaceful inside. The house is organized around two large spaces. The soaring great room is framed by reclaimed white oak timbers and features nice views of the runway. Big game trophies have a home in a sixteen foot high, thirty foot long paneled trophy room.
