This unique, 2800 sf. Contemporary “Shingle-Style” country manor is located on a small mountaintop on the site of an abandoned granite quarry. A principal goal was to integrate the home with the site, and to retain views of the pond and its magnificent granite ledge backdrop from as many rooms as possible. RDA provided master planning, architecture and interior architecture services. Highly custom design features were integrated throughout the house, making extensive use of wood, stone and ceramic detailing.

An additional building lot was created from an existing highly sloped site containing an original Victorian carriage house. The carriage house was fully renovated and enhanced by additions sympathetic to its historic significance. A new 4500s sf. “shingle-style” residence, respectful of the adjacent carriage house, was then created for the site.
