Cotswold Estate

ecluded on 16-acres, this rambling English house was designed for a young couple who favored the textured warmth of weathered stone and brick. Ruble limestone, tan brick details and a reclaimed English clay tile roof were selected to create an estate suited to its woodland surroundings.

To achieve the effect of a light filled, airy interior the house bends along a curved ridge overlooking a meadow and woods. A gallery of leaded glass doors illuminates the oak paneled entrance hall and its grand staircase.

Corinthian pilasters and geometric shaped molding on the ceiling animate the formal dining room. Finished with limestone and wood floors, the antique French oak for the doors and the library lend an air of luxurious warmth.
