The design and construction of this 5,500-square-foot house for its builder and his family was documented in This Old House magazine. The placement of the house on the northern edge of a rolling open site demarked by fieldstone walls, where it has panoramic views from the major rooms and porch, requires that the entrance be at the back. The rambling character of the massing breaks down the scale of the house and forms the circle of the entry courtyard, giving the appearance that the house has grown slowly and naturally over time as it has settled comfortably into its site.
