Influenced by the classic Tuscan stone farmhouse, this home is configured around a central courtyard with an outdoor fireplace. Skillfully sited in a grove of one-hundred year old oaks, and rising to that premier challenge of the site, not one was removed to make way for the home. A generous rear terrace and a covered outdoor room overlook a native landscape and pond. Tile roofing, exposed rafter tails, brick and terra cotta clay accents, along with rubble stone veneer give the home a rich vernacular of authentic Tuscan rural architecture. The use of native plant materials give the appearance that the home has been on this site for generations.
