It was in 1967 that the ingenious designer took up the challenge of designing a gorgeous prefab under which many deemed simply impossible at the time. The result is the fabulous that has served the family as an amazing summer retreat for well over four decades now!
The entire residence has the ambiance of a relaxed retreat surrounded by idyllic farms and hills that become a part of the interior thanks to the use of large openings. Much of the original stone structure and the trusses that support the roof were preserved and they remind you of the home’s historic past.
Transforming the interior of this residence into a welcoming modern hub DeForest Architects turned to steel framed glass windows and walls for the makeover. With the homeowners being booklovers the theme of choice was both simple and unique.
The high walls of the church are obviously perfect for the 25000 books in the bookstore and the spectacular interiors can get intimidating at times. A crucifix-shaped table in the café and awesome lighting complete this splendid makeover.
The entire residence consists of four distinct suites with each one capable of serving as an individual home on its own. Light hues dominate the interior with some of the walls being replastered and painted white while the wooden flooring ensures that there is a linking visual element from one room to the next.
