Enveloped in a bucolic landscape of rolling hills located in the heart of Chester County, this 23-acre country estate includes a 6,500 sf house, garage, pool house, six-stall barn and riding arena. This four-bedroom house was based on the Shingle Style and true to the style contains characteristics of the more vernacular colonial era architecture.
Organized around lovely views to the south and east, the plan begins with a north facing portico and entrance on axis with the largest room in the house: a two story high living volume with a story and a half of south-facing glass.
The plan consists of free-flowing spaces each connected with large openings suggesting a single volume. From nearly any vantage point in the house one is aware of two or three spaces simultaneously.
