The homeowner's love for modern design is merged with the native forest and grass meadows of the Midwest on this 24-acre Ohio property. Designer Nick McCullough created lush mixed borders that transitioned between the dark modern pool house and the classic Georgian architecture of the brick main house.

This dramatic hilltop home features a color-blocked exterior inspired by abstract art. Various shades of blue connect the house, sited on the ridge of a hill, to the the sky.

Because the designers were unable to increase the square footage of the existing house, they built a separate structure and connected it to the old house by a deck.
