Check out this gorgeous New England timber frame ski home! Our client’s chose to work with our Classic Barn 3 floor plan and customized it to fit suit their family and lifestyle.
Working with our design team, we modified our Classic Barn 3 timber frame floor plan from it’s 28’x52′ and expanded the dimensions to 32’x’52’. The 12’x20′ great room bump out remained the same. To make sure the spectacular view of the mountains nearby was maximized, we went from a 1.5 story home to a full 2 story home so that the second floor bedrooms South facing captured the gorgeous views. The homeowner along with our design team and the interior designer came up with an perfect floor plan, check out the floor plan below!
There are two entrances, the foyer in the main portion of the home and the mudroom. Living in New England, with the constant change in weather, the majority of the time, the mudroom is used as the primary entry. This mudroom is a good size and features a long bench with storage space below and hooks above to hang coats and ski gear. Entering the house from the mudroom, you are immediately drawn to the beautiful kitchen which flows right into the dining room. The dining room captures a view of the spread of mountains nearby. Beyond the dining room and kitchen is a large vaulted great room showing off the beautiful exposed wooden beams and white tongue and groove board above. The view of the mountains extends into this room and can be viewed through the expansive wall of windows. The first floor is extremely spacious and can host a good sized crowd. In fact, we were invited to an open house over the winter and there was plenty of space for everyone. This floor plan was planned in great detail around entertaining family and friends.
To the right of the main living space is the master suite. The bedroom is also South facing allowing the homeowners to enjoy the mountainous view. A spacious walk in closet and luxurious master bathroom also make up this suite.
The second floor features a gorgeous loft that overlooks the first floor and captures a view of the timbers and a view of the mountains through the wall of windows. To the right of the loft is a guest suite that is similar in layout to the master below. To the left of the loft are two kids bedrooms both featuring accessible play lofts by a ships ladder. This is a new trend we are seeing, especially being that the second floor bedrooms are vaulted, it offers plenty of space for a loft above. There is also another full bathroom on the second floor for the kids to share. In the loft area is a discretely hidden laundry area featuring custom white cabinetry and millwork.
