A cascading, glittering apple orchard already served as the perfect location for this home. Also possessing impeccable interiors, the home was only in need of a grand facelift. DeStefano Architects was hired to improve upon the approach to the house; to anchor it to the landscape and to disguise the 1970s mansard roof. The homeowner wished for visitors to feel the façade matched the grandeur, exquisite land that surrounds the home. The size of the existing building allowed for an inviting entryway to welcome visitors with over scaled detailing to create a focal point for the entire property. The rolling greens and colorful flora and fauna of apple trees now serves as a beautiful and aesthetically matched backdrop to the new façade, which has earthen colors and materials to complement the surroundings.
