The front porch juts off of the home's foyer, which connects the public living space with the more private area housing the bedrooms and family room, and offers a glimpse of the New Mountain style found within the home.Eric Perry © 2013, Scripps Networks, LLC. All Rights Reserved
The front door sets the tone for the mix of materials seen inside the home. The rustic tongue-and-groove pine door, custom-built for the property, is accented with bands of black, industrial metal and a heavy-duty kick plate.Eric Perry © 2013, Scripps Networks, LLC. All Rights Reserved
This porch not only makes a great first impression, it's also specifically designed to withstand the harsh winter elements. The flat central roof can withstand more than 8 feet of piled snow. Pairs of thick 4-by-8-inch wooden beams along with steel supports make this roof strong enough to \"park a freight train,\" says project contractor Mike Efstratis.Eric Perry © 2013, Scripps Networks, LLC.

Slate tile runs from the front porch through the foyer and into the outdoor kitchen on the back of the house, creating the feeling of one large, indoor-outdoor room.Eric Perry © 2013, Scripps Networks, LLC. All Rights Reserved
Large windows on either side of the door and at the rear of the foyer allow for views straight through to the backyard kitchen and the woods beyond.
