This Arts & Crafts inspired home is situated on a wide inner city lot next to a natural wooded preserve. The clients specifically wished for the new home to be more connected to the side yard and to the wooded area beyond than the previous house had been. Maximizing natural light into the house was also of the utmost importance. To achieve this, the house was biased to the North side of the lot to provide a large South yard for entertaining, with the wooded area as a backdrop. The home’s many features include an attached four car garage at the rear, a spiral stair from the Dining Room to a lower wine cellar, and a lower level Gymnasium.
