Hopkinton Home

Located in Hopkinton, New Hampshire. This home began as a modest looking, existing two-story Colonial on a rolling site with a large amount of tree cover. The design challenge was to adjust the exterior massing to give the home a more exciting presence on the site.

The roof rafters of the main Gable were extended downward to tie into the eave line of the adjacent wings. This re-centered the mass of the building back to the center and lessened the horizontal effect of the side wings. New entrances were carved into the building beneath the newly extended main Gable. On the rear of the house a large curving mahogany deck was installed with a man-made free stone brook running along its outside edge, separating the deck from a curving stone retaining wall, which is illuminated at night. The deck gives views to the horse stables and riding rings in the distance. Total square footage is 5,200. Square Feet. Exterior materials used are cedar shingles, copper flashing, mahogany decks and natural fieldstone walls
