Stephen McCasey, Architect, was responsible for all the design details and supervised the construction.

Square footage, as supplied by the Architect: 

First floor, second floor, apartment and other finished areas:  7,000 sq. ft.

Lower level gym, games room, wine room   690  sq. ft. 

Stephen McCasey’s comments on his design: 

“The approach to this estate winds through stone gates, past equestrian fences, the new stables and up into a secluded forest of tall stately trees which form a backdrop for the main residence."  

“The house is laid out over five floor levels nestled into a hillside." 

“In consideration of the site, the house has an informal and soft edge in form and materials.  The massing is a balanced symmetry.  The materials consist of rough cut stone and board and batten style siding."

“The interior planning follows a traditional H-shape with the bedroom wing and utilitarian wing (garage, laundry, family room and housekeeper’s quarters) linked by the spaces more public in character.  The front verandah stretches across the linking piece comprised of the entry and garden halls, dining room, breakfast room and kitchen.  Some of these rooms open onto the rear flagstone terrace increasing the exposure to available morning light."

“The living room is pulled away from the house to allow greater privacy.  Its high cove ceiling and bay window draw focus to the view of the woodland beyond.  The master bedroom suite of rooms including ensuite, dressing room, sitting room and den are located adjacent to the living room.  The children’s bedrooms and exercise room are located below the master bedroom in the lowest level of the house."

“A more rustic aesthetic has been implemented in the family room through the use of exposed structural beams, pine ceiling planks and a stone fireplace.  The terrace and screened porch are accessed through french doors.  The screened porch overlooks the riding areas."

“The house takes advantage of views into its picturesque setting while respecting and complementing the site.”
