Traditional Backcountry Colonial Revival by Douglas VanderHorn Architects
Westchester County, New York, United States
This backcountry Colonial Revival was designed for clients requesting a traditional American country residence with sophisticated Asian influences. Douglas VanderHorn Architects was brought on to design the sprawling home with Rinfret, Ltd. and Chelsea Skye Design handling the interior design. Douglas VanderHorn Architects described the project on their Houzz project page, “Four brick chimneys anchor the five-bay-wide central main block, while pediment dormers with arched windows embellish the wood shingle roof. Elegant side wings, porches, a breezeway, and a whimsical barn-like garage seem to have been developed over time, creating a classic New England feel.” With more than 11,000 square feet of space, the residence includes an assortment of formal and casual family rooms, a bright inviting kitchen and a distinctive English pub inspired billiards room with oak wainscotting, ceiling beams and trim work. Intricate millwork, panelled wainscoting, and custom built-ins are complemented by décor that is timeless and comfortable. The residence sits on a lush property with numerous covered terraces, outdoor entertaining areas and a large swimming pool. Photography by Michael Partenio.
