The owners of this custom home dreamt of creating a house that would integrate with the meadow and woods of their 20-acre property in the agrarian landscape of Orange County. Avid entertainers, they wanted a house to share with family and friends both at large gatherings and for intimate dinners. The open floor plan easily accommodates large parties, while variations in ceiling height and the placement of windows create spaces that provide a sense of intimacy for quiet gatherings. A contemporary stone tile fireplace anchors the living room. A broad pass-through window between the dining room and kitchen facilitates hosting and maintains spatial connection throughout the main level.

A view of the house at dusk, tucked away in tall grasses of a meadow. Red siding, white trim and standing seam metal roofs evoke a connection to the rural landscape.
Bright and open contemporary kitchen with tall cathedral ceilings, wood cabinetry and artistically placed corrugated metal and red tiles along the back wall.
Large windows, tall ceilings, corrugated-metal-wrapped range hood, and generous kitchen island with metal accents create a dynamic and functional kitchen.
