Reed House

The Reed House was designed in response to the natural surroundings.  Sited adjacent to a spring-fed pond with banks dotted with cattails, the house echoes the reed-like lines with the vertical cladding and natural materials.  The three bedroom / two and a half bathroom house is sited amongst woodlands and pastures offering privacy as well as views to the historic farmland beyond.  The home will be built with sustainable building techniques including a pre-fab foundation and modular construction along with geo-thermal heating & cooling. The home is designed to take advantage of the preserved natural setting with indoor-outdoor living with walls of windows opening to views of nature as well as a pool deck.  The entrance to the residence is via a central courtyard created by the multiple structures of the house.  The separated volumes offer privacy to the master suite and bedroom areas and are connected via a linear glass breezeway creating a dramatic interior element. Features include oak hardwood flooring throughout, an open plan living, kitchen and dining space complete with custom Italian cabinetry, Miele appliances and a wood burning fireplace. The master suite includes a walk-in closet, freestanding tub surrounded with artistic porcelain tile, walk-in luxury shower opening up to a private outdoor shower.
