Panaia Sharples Residence
This new contemporary Farmhouse for a retired dentist and a global bio-tech executive is located on a beautiful property with wooded surroundings; opening out onto a picturesque view in the fields beyond. Siting the structure was of primary concern, as well as the need for first floor living spaces. The Owners desire to accommodate traditional first floor entertaining spaces, as well as individual offices, a painting studio and their master bedroom suite, all positioned to afford privacy from the road and expansive views of the woods and fields required a unique design solution. Solar orientation and seasonal effects of natural lighting as well as a precise lighting design were strong considerations for displaying the Owner's vast artwork collection throughout the house. Large windows, wood flooring, customized storage in nearly every room, and sliding farmhouse style doors are just a few of the design details contributing to this unique house's homey details. Second floor spaces include multiple bedrooms and baths for family and guests as well as a large great room over the three-bay garage.
