Seven Gables is the culmination of a longstanding professional relationship between Balzer and Tuck and a local custom builder who was interested in working in a design-build capacity for his new personal residence.
The homeowner’s desired aesthetic was a simplified farmhouse. In response, Seven Gables’ front elevation is anchored by a heavy timber sitting porch with views overlooking a paddock. The gabled roof forms anchor the building to the field, offering dimension to the otherwise flat landscape.
An open floor plan between the kitchen, dining, and living areas is thoughtfully divided by sliding barn doors, providing both visual and acoustic separation. The rear screened porch and grilling area located off of the kitchen is a focal point for outdoor entertaining and relaxing. Custom cabinetry and millwork throughout are a testament to the talents of the builder/homeowner.
