Private Residence


This New Albany Farms home was designed to look at home on its fifteen-acre “farm” site. The central section of this Georgian house appears as a historic structure that was added onto over many years. The mostly brick composition evolves into less formal “additions,” and ultimately, into a board-and-batten garage and barn.

The large, main living space is anchored by a handsome, built-in cabinet (with television) at one end and the kitchen at the other end. A series of south-facing French doors along the length of the space bathe it in natural light.

The central, coffered gallery provides a strong link between the rooms, and a natty bar creates a surprise when it is opened to form a nook in the long hallway.

All the many rooms and spaces in the house combine to give a natural elegance that you would expect to find in a stately Georgian home, yet they are relaxed through the choice of finished details and materials to make living in the twenty-first century seem natural and easy.
