View from the Front

An open plan within a traditional framework was the Owner’s goal - for ease of entertaining, for working at home, or for just hanging out as a family. We pushed out to the side, eliminating a useless appendage, to expand the dining room and to create a new family room. Large openings connect rooms as well as the garden, while allowing spacial definition. Additional renovations included updating the kitchen and master bath, as well as creating a formal office paneled in stained cherry wood.

What is the stone used on the exterior of this home? Is it manufactured?
Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo
No, this is natural field stone quarried in Maryland. We were lucky that the stone used for the addition was a close match to the original.

Steven Corley Randel, Architect added this to Roots of Style: Midcentury Styles Respond to Modern Life
This two-story version feels colonial, especially because of the shutters, but the entrance is not classically detailed, and the elevation is slightly asymmetrical. Its form has a shed roof wrapping the second level to cover the entrance porch and part of a room, along with an extension of the single level to the right — characteristics that can be found on many suburban houses across the U.S.Do You Live in a Minimalist Traditional Home?
