Classic Farmhouse With Entertainment Barn

Upon arrival, guests are greeted by a contemporary pool and rustic entertainment barn. Surrounded by native plantings, the classic Vermont farmhouse feels at home with the adjacent meadow.

Rustic Meets Classic Farmhouse

The main houses of this family compound are a clean interpretation of the classic Vermont farmhouse, while the entertainment barn features a rustic style. A stacked stone wall and native plantings surround the contemporary pool.

Modern, Rustic Home With Pool

A rustic stone and wood home contrasts against the sleek, contemporary pool. Modern white lounge chairs surround the pool, while native trees, grasses and perennials make the pool terrace feel at home in the context of the adjacent meadow.

Contemporary Pool Surrounded by Bluestone Patio

Lounge chairs are arranged to take advantage of the beautiful mountain and meadow views. A sleek, contemporary pool surrounded by a bluestone patio contrasts against the rustic barn that acts as an entertaining space.

Contemporary Pool Surrounded by Native Plants

Native plant material provides a buffer for the pool terrace from the adjacent entry drive. The lounge chairs and side tables are made from recycled milk jugs and are so durable they can be left out all year long.

Rustic Barn and Contemporary Pool for Entertaining

Off the main Vermont farmhouse, the entertainment barn opens to a covered terrace with outdoor fireplace. A bluestone patio surrounds the pool, which contrasts against the rustic vibe of the barn with its sleek, contemporary lines.
