On the Boards: Pondside
Suggestive of its forbears, which were primarily vacation cottages, this shingle-style home incorporates many of the style's usual characteristics; numerous windows, expansive porches, and varying dormers that celebrate an interior program rather than prostrate to an exterior symmetry yet still exert a rational balance throughout the facade.
Past a sentinel of double columns on the porch, the front door leads to the main section of the home. Here the living spaces resonate with simplicity and livability. Connected by a series of deep storage passage ways, the kitchen, breakfast room, great room, and veranda seamlessly flow together for fair-weather entertaining.
The guest and master wing are designed around separate bathrooms and closets for optimum privacy. The upper level's open expanse allows for a yoga studio or meditation room, away from the activity and noise of the lower spaces.
