House on East HillKeene, New York

This four-bedroom home of new construction is nestled into a west-facing slope on East Hill in Keene, New York.  The sloping site allows for access to the outdoors from the lower level.

Rustic details of cedar shingle siding, exposed rafter tails and a stone chimney reflect the character of the surrounding architecture in the Adirondack region.

Abundant windows in the family room, dining room, and master bedroom take advantage of light and views.  On the main floor, living spaces are contained in one volume and the master suite is contained in an adjacent volume. The stair connects the two volumes and also serves to separate public and private spaces.  Bedrooms for children and guests are located on the lower level.  The family room features a large stone fireplace and timbered ceilings.

This project is permitted by the Adirondack Park Association and in the design phase.
