Situated on a breathtaking high bluff with 270 degree views ranging from the southern Adirondack peaks, to Lake Champlain, and the Green Mountain peaks of Mt. Mansfield and Camel's Hump. The site is accessed via a picturesque private drive through woodlands and fields providing a mix of short and long vistas. Context includes the pastoral landscape and renowned buildings of Shelburne Farms. The property's history included many small farms and homesteads that were combined to create one of the largest estates in America prior to the turn of the 20th century. The idea was to design two smaller forms representing the likely scale of their 19th century predecessors and connect them with a larger form that creates the central mass of the modern house. Familiar forms and wonderfully tactile materials interpreted and used in contemporary ways, in conjunction with impeccable craftsmanship, have combined to create a warm and welcoming home.
