Peaceful and playful, this Chatham home is spectacular!
“It was a big challenge for us to complete this project in 10 months so that the family could be enjoying it by the summer,” admits Ryan Newton, vice president of C.H. Newton Builders. “It was possible because we had great communications with everyone. We were in touch with the neighbors, answering questions from the beginning. As we progressed, we met with the SV Design team and kept the owners up-to-date with weekly reports and photos. Though the homeowners were out of state, they were always quick to respond so we could make adjustments and take advantage of opportunities to do something new and creative.”
Together, they have created a spectacular home where the family’s daily rhythms can flow easily from active to quiet—from sharing time together to enjoying time alone.
A circular driveway leads to the welcoming entrance of a wide porch under a gambrel roof, a style of roof and house that the clients always liked and were happy to have for their new home—a home where, as Schneeberger says, “The amazing views are the first thing you see when you enter.” As you open the front door, you see straight through the dining room to the outdoors and are drawn through the French doors to a large semi-circular patio and the expansive lawn and pond beyond. Hugging this view, the arms of the “Y” structural shape of the two-story home, stretch the length of the house to the right—the “active” side—and to the left—the “quiet” side.
