A House with a View – Exterior

The west side exterior of the house faces long-distance views. All of the home’s informal spaces (the family room, kitchen, kids’ great room and the office) are grouped on this side of the house to take advantage of the views, the architect says. The overall look is in keeping with the Shingle style. The roof is cedar shingle with horizontal details. The stone chimney flares at the base, mimicking the home’s flared-stone foundation. A covered porch with a bluestone patio provides a relaxing, shady area near the pool. The large roof overhangs create shade for the home’s wide expanses of glass and also protect the siding from the elements.
