Having raised their children in beautiful Alexandria Township, N.J. our clients wanted to stay close by, but build a smaller home on another lot they owned. The new home is smaller, but thanks to the open floor plan and the abundant windows, which provide woodland views and plenty of natural daylight, the house feels much larger. Catherdral ceilings and a loft add to the drama of the space. Hardi-plank siding and Azek trim provide a low maintenance exterior. Gently re-working the grade and adding curving retaining walls, we were able to provide a walk-out basement that looks beautiful nestled in the hillside and will allows for more living and entertaining space.
