Hudson Valley Farm
A large farm with dramatic views is the setting for this newly-completed stone farmhouse and outbuildings. The 9,000 square foot Colonial Revival main house, built of Connecticut granite fieldstone, was designed to appear to have grown and evolved over time. A 3,500 square foot wood and stone Carriage Barn, a small stone Gardner’s Shed, and a Pool and Pool Cabana create a precinct of buildings surrounding the house and anchor it in a landscape developed by our office in collaboration with noted landscape designer Deborah Nevins.
The project’s interior has been designed to reinforce the idea that the house grew over time, with the interior architecture and moldings rooted in the American Federal period suggested by the antique Hudson Valley mantels we found for the house. The decoration, also by our office, is ongoing and responds to the clients’ love of collecting antiques and sporting art as well as the need for a gracious and comfortable setting for family life. The house was the recipient of a 2012 Stanford White Award for New Residential Construction.
