“Just as described, there is an edgy, irreverent vibe here, but the result has an appropriate stature and seriousness. Love the overscale windows. And the outdoor spaces are so great.”

Situated atop an old Civil War battle site, this new residence was conceived for a couple with southern values and a rock-and-roll attitude. The project consists of a house, a pool with a pool house and a renovated music studio. A marriage of modern and traditional design, this project used a combination of California redwood siding, stone and a slate roof with flat-seam lead overhangs. Intimate and well planned, there is no space wasted in this home. The execution of the detail work, such as handmade railings, metal awnings and custom windows jambs, made this project mesmerizing.

Cues from the client and how they use their space helped inspire and develop the initial floor plan, making it live at a human scale but with dramatic elements. Their varying taste then inspired the theme of traditional with an edge. The lines and rhythm of the house were simplified, and then complemented with some key details that made the house a juxtaposition of styles.

The wood Ultimate Casement windows were all standard sizes. However, there was a desire to make the windows have a “deep pocket” look to create a break in the facade and add a dramatic shadow line. Marvin was able to customize the jambs by extruding them to the exterior. They added a very thin exterior profile, which negated the need for exterior casing. The same detail was in the stone veneers and walls, as well as the horizontal siding walls, with no need for any modification. This resulted in a very sleek look.

    Hi Pro-land Landscape Construction - thanks for your question on this image. The largest windows on either side of the chimney are Marvin Ultimate Casement windows. Surrounding the swinging patio doors are two fixed (inoperable) windows. You can learn more and see additional details and images of this project on our website.

    Black-hued siding gives this home a cool, edgy vibe, while the stonework brings a charming feel. It’s a little bit modern, yet a little bit rustic.

    How would this siding look with lighter colored (painted) brick?

    Avi Spielman added this to ExteriorsDecember 26, 2019

    This feels similar to our library. We like the windows and I would like to find a place for this type of siding. We are starting to think a combination of stone, stucco, brick, and siding may work. Rach DOES NOT like this stone however.
