Through the port cache, the owners can access a passageway that leads into the main house. Two terra cotta planters stand on either side of the arch, with a floor mat in between them to welcome visitors.
A covered loggia connects the garage to the main house, as well as teases a view of the rear garden. Blue pottery decorates the breezeway and speaks to the same cobalt-colored tile that lines the pool and fountain.
Upholstered walls, a large custom area rug and new media seating adorn this space. A section of this newly renovated space is separated with a slanted glass wall that separates the media room from the workout room and also aids in acoustics in both spaces.
When the sun goes down, this backyard somehow becomes even more beautiful. Landscape lights along the edge of the main house cast a warm glow across the patio, while LEDs in the pool make the water sparkle.
The main house opens right up to the outdoor living areas and adjacent porches. Here, four wicker chairs make the most of the covered porch and create a comfortable sitting area for catching up with friends.
The homeowners wanted to have a water feature that would collect rain water from the large horizontal roof and have it cascade around the house when it rains. By recirculating the water, the designers made the feature active year round.
In addition to an expansive main house, this compound comes with guest quarters that can be access through the backyard. Tall, willowy trees decorate the landscape and offer some respite from the afternoon sun.
The property was designed and built by Yankee Barn Homes in 2016 for a client who wanted to get away from it all. As soon as they turn off the main road and follow the driveway past a canopy of trees, the owner will finally feel at ease.
A set of brick walkways leads from the driveway to the main house and the mother-in-law wing. The walkways are spaced so that they could accommodate a car without harming the home's landscaping and would provide access to a carport space between the main house and the mother-in-law wing.
