This 3,000 square foot home in Sheffield, Massachusetts was designed for a couple who wished to retire in the countryside. Aging in this home was a consideration in the design, and the final outcome is a home that is tailored to their needs, both current and anticipated. The house is level, making mobility much easier.
The screened porch is enjoyable year round, thanks to a large field stone fireplace and wall panels that can be glass or screened, depending on the season. Even the two family dogs were considered, with two log framed windows offering a view of the countryside at their height.
The aesthetic throughout the home is clean and light filled, featuring natural palettes with one very noticeable exception. The most eye-catching adornment is the blue cypress wood dining enclosure, which serves as a kitchen banquette and spatial divider.
