The bathroom walls were painted light yellow with white beaded board wainscoting. New tile floors in a traditional pattern adds to the character of the room and a subway tile bathtub and shower were installed. A gray and white patterned towel hangs on a rustic hook.
The symmetrical entrance and rigidity of a traditional colonial are softened by the shingle style and supplemented by stonework. An angled garage wing responds to the natural contours of a plateau on which the house sits, addressing the natural landscape as well as clients' needs.
Natural materials in earth-tone colors were used to make this house feel at home. Though it is only two-stories on the front facade, the dormers and chimney pots help to elevate an otherwise horizontal structure. The breezeway to the left of the garage allows guests to reach the rear-yard pool without going through the house.
