Silver Lake RetreatRustic Entry, Boston
This project is a vacation home for a longtime Battle Associates’ Client. On a piney shoreside, this house is a graceful bowing to the lake. It was designed for a family of five to enjoy year round. The expansive porch accommodates large gatherings, yet retains an intimate, cozy feel. Client – “I wanted a house where great memories could be made, with special things built into it that my kids would always remember. John Battle did that for us.” Entry hall with stone floor. Very rustic, humble feeling.
What Houzz contributors are saying:
Entryways are a common area where we find ourselves wanting to change flooring. Stone or tile can stand up to moisture and mud tracked in from outside, but hardwood is still the most popular flooring material for the rest of the house. This entryway has two logical transition points at the openings to the hallways. The colors in the stone also pick up the tones in the wood which makes the two materials look good right next to each other.
