Sabatini Architects designed this new residence to create a living and entertaining space for the Maude’s. The project included an in-law’s apartment for the Maude’s parents who live with the couple for several months of the year. The Maude’s also enjoy opening their home for frequent social and family gatherings. Distinguishing ‘guest’ spaces from the ‘private’ living spaces gave order to the open plan. Deep covered porches extending from the recessed front entry and open living room created transitional inside/outside living areas, complimented now by gardens that surround the house.
The owner’s favored the modest detailing of the Arts and Crafts Movement. Deep eaves and overhangs, exposed wood roof rafters, shake shingled exterior walls, stone and stuccoed chimneys, and natural limestone and brick wainscot, columns and walks establish the house as a modern interpretation of arts and crafts style building sensibility and detailing. The interior is open and graciously appointed with more wood detailing that carries the Arts and Craft style throughout. Sabatini Architects is currently working with the Maude’s on a design for an outdoor kitchen and living area to expand the home’s entertaining and living spaces.
