Site
A wooded 35 acre site, sloping to a magnificent pond, provides the setting for this retirement home. We designed the pond and dam to provide access across a deep ravine to the house site hidden in the trees on the other side. The driveway was laid out carefully over the dam and through dense woods to provide a scenic approach to the house.

Program
The client desired a small retirement home that emulated the warmth of a log cabin, but constructed with the finest materials and craftsmanship.

Design Solution
Nestled in the trees, dry laid stone walls integrate this one story, multi-level house with the natural features of the site.
