House at Cotchpinicut

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Steven Corley Randel, Architect added this to Roots of Style: Does Your House Have a Medieval Heritage?
In another view of the same fascinating contemporary Gothic revival, it is clear that the roots are quite loosely interpreted. Originals normally had steeply pitched roofs, and their plans were commonly rectangular. In this house cross bracing and windows define the signature arch shape, while varying eave lines and multiple pitched roofs combine to assemble a modern and complex plan with intersecting levels. Stone and wood left to weather wrap the house in an unofficial rustic fashion, an interesting nod to medieval architecture, with boldly colored deep red window frames. Natural light plays an important role, and this house is full of clerestory windows — a nice allusion to a Gothic cathedral.
