The home, named Lathhouse, was inspired and conceptually influenced by the region’s local agricultural history, notably by a lath house, which is a traditional gabled farm structure made primarily of wood laths or slats spaced to reduce sunlight while permitting ventilation. This wood detail is also found most notably in corn cribs, drying barns, and livestock shelters.
The weathered wood cladding reflects a timeless patina reminiscent of the barns and outbuildings in rural landscapes, with the siding featured on the home being reclaimed from decades-old corral board snow fencing.
The residence, a two-story gable structure, is oriented east-west overlooking a spacious lawn to the south. The gently sloping topography, coupled with the minimalist pool house, defines the lower lawn, pool, and tennis court areas.
The pool house, whose exterior matches the residence, mediates between the pool and tennis court activities, while the site perimeter is defined by a continuous hedge and anchored by mature deciduous trees.
The stairs connect the main level with the lower floor, where there’s a playroom, wine room, powder room, exercise room, and guest suite, as well as the upper floor, where there’s the primary bedroom suite and a pair of additional guest rooms.
