Mountain Home Modern

After a recent interior renovation, completed by Andrew Skurman Architects, we mirrored the crisp appearance of the home’s interior in the landscape. Classically-inspired borders and expanses of lawn, as well as upgraded terraces and pathways of custom bush-hammered bluestone, give a seamless unity to the architecture and the grounds. With sustainability in mind, we blended native grasses in large drifts and selected plants with low water requirements.
