The 70-acre site includes unspoiled forests, old abandoned farm fields, a pond, and extensive garden rooms. The goal was to create a classic Pennsylvania farmhouse that was easy to maintain with space for fine craft collections and the hobbies of the owners, who also entertain frequently.
The new house sits on the site of the original farmhouse, with views to open fields, porches, outdoor rooms, gardens, a substantial stone fireplace, sculpture, and spaces for entertaining. The living room has a double height space ensuring abundant natural light throughout the first floor. The homes three levels provide separation between uses including entertaining and living space on the first floor, bedrooms on the second floor, and weaving studio and exercise room on the top floor. A large wrap around porch provides areas for quiet reading, enjoying the garden, and viewing the sun setting across the adjacent valley.
