A SINGLE-FAMILY RESIDENCE, INCLUDING 6,500 SF OF ABOVE GRADE LIVING SPACE AND 4,000 SF OF FINISHED BASEMENT
This empty-nester couple wanted a home to accommodate all primary living functions on the first floor. At the same time, the house had to provide space for large family gatherings and for extended visits from out of town family members. A long, narrow corner lot proved challenging, as did set backs imposed by the Village Zoning Board. The resulting lack of backyard space was resolved through the creation of a courtyard feel in which the house wraps around an outdoor space accessible from most rooms on the first floor. The floor plan employs clear organization with a main circulation spine that connects all rooms. The architecture echoes the English Tudor style of the couple’s previous home.
