Home Tour: Shingle-style home in New Hampshire with inviting touches

This stunning shingle-style home was designed by , nestled on a hillside in Hanover, New Hampshire. Its hillside location affords the home long-range views of Mt. Ascutney, a beautiful mountain noted for its granite outcrops. The design of this home is a re-interpretation of classic shingle-style dwellings of the late 19th century. It features high-quality craftsmanship and materials throughout, with an emphasis on longevity of finishes, structure, and mechanical systems.

This house adopts the inventive sculptural massing of its predecessors and offers traditionally detailed rooms, but places a greater emphasis on interior openness, daylight, and energy efficiency than did its Arts & Crafts forebears. The homeowners desired a comfortable family home that could also be used for entertaining guests. This house showcases a range of local building materials and the work of many skilled Upper Valley tradespersons, including timber-framers, masons and furniture makers.

With its generously scaled spaces and array of specialized rooms, managing the visual scale of the house to fit its site was a design challenge. The greatest challenge lay in giving the structure its irregular roofline and by creative organization of the three wings. Furthermore, the exterior textures, shadow lines, and subdued color palette allow the house to blend comfortably into its wooded surroundings.

What We Love: This shingle-style home offers a beautiful exterior facade that opens into warm and welcoming living spaces. There are so many beautiful details, finishes and custom features throughout this home that makes it very special. In the kitchen, the project team did a fantastic job of keeping the space feeling bright and fresh with no wall cabinets. Instead, they have integrated custom-built lower cabinets with plenty of storage. Beautifully done! …Readers, please share with us what details you found most appealing in the design of this home and why in the Comments!
