Original architect, Charles Richter, created the design of the home from inside out with the attention on details visible as one approaches and on the functionality of the interior space and integration of the outdoor views. The current owners describe their initial visit…”We walked over the bridge to enter the home, the doors opened and with that view of the trees, we immediately felt part of the woods surrounding us….it’s like living in a modern treehouse!” Re-envisioned between, 2010 and 2012 with the help of DC based architect, David Jameson, the truss roof system allowed all interior walls to be removed and replaced with a series of freestanding walnut-clad elements designed to delineate rooms and to be used as storage throughout the home. Floors were replaced with flat-sawn walnut planks to give a more natural look. Pure white Corian surfaces in the kitchen, bathrooms, cabinetry and bar juxtaposed with the exposed white brick and wood elements repositions the house as organic and part of the woods. The brick chimney and fireplace in the center of the living space is surrounded by skylights to ensure plenty of natural light fills the home.
