Project Description

Contemporary castle

It’s almost like a contemporary castle with it’s seemingly random assortment of insets and roof lines; seriously angular from the streetview; towered and turreted from the rear and breathtakingly open from the inside.  This modern construct is an up-to-the-moment study in contrasts.

Take, for starters, the stacked angles of the exterior components; the dramatic slopes and with a jumble of various window options. Each has its own character, each casts its own unique splash of sunlight on the interior walls. Add the contrast of variegated, brick-cut dry-stack stone against the smooth and subtle stucco, and punctuated by extruding support beams.

The dark/light contrast is echoed on the inside, with soaring sun-splashed walls well-grounded by the rich interplay of honey-finished wooden flooring and a smattering of well-placed exposed beams. The kitchen is awash in natural light and alive cabinets and appliance nooks, a riot of tiny tiles and a cool, semi-circle brick-based island with a granite crown.

curtains in a sumptuous media center; a mini-rotunda surrounded the jetted tub in the master bath. The focal point of the kitchen is a custom-cut mantle that encompasses the cooktop and oven, much like a fireplace might have dominated the cooking area 200 years ago. Custom-carved kitchen cabinets support a small island with marble countertop.

The master bedroom features dark wood flooring and a built-in half canopy to accentuate a carved headboard. And the same warm theme marks the game and media rooms and an expansive wine cellar tucked discretely between the arms of the staircase.
