A Modern Manor:
This contemporary home designed for a combined family of eight echoes the elegance of a classic country estate but updates it for everyday modern living. A muted palette of warm grays found on the exterior stucco, windows, and trim is matched in the interior giving the house a unified and serene feel. A strong, linear central axis links all of the spaces on the first floor capped by a majestic two-story entry hall with a dramatic staircase. The kitchen, with its ample breakfast area, provides an additional focal point showcasing views to the front of the house and the rear where a pool is edged by an open-air veranda and screened porch with a see-through fireplace.
