New Hope, Pennsylvania
The clients requested a new home to replace the dark and outdated original house. The primary goals were to accommodate their collection of Asian and African art and objects while taking full advantage of the direct river views. The result is a somewhat contemporary expression of open spaces and walls of glass, with extensive use of wood detailing.
The property also includes a new, two-story pool house incorporating the original stone walls of a previous structure. With dramatic views of the river, and overlooking a creek and redesigned pool area, it is intended to have the feel of a very comfortable tree house.
