Farmhouse - Panton, Vermont

Program

Design of historical, yet contemporary year round retreat, incorporating the regional character of Vermont

Challenges

Adding modern details, while preserving regional character on a four acre parcel of land within a 1,500 acre, family owned dairy farm and farmhouse enclave

Rugged, rock-laden cliff, overlooking Lake Champlain was the quintessential area for the residence

Incorporation of the following design elements: 1" x 6" vertical siding, panton stone fireplace and all exterior low free standing walls and railings, brick entry, wood exposed round structural columns, natural oak flooring, oak handrails, oak balustrades and heat pump with perimeter floor ducts
