A dream home getaway in a style "not contemporary, not log cabin, but kind of ski lodge, informal but elegant" was what our clients envisioned when they purchased land on a mountain ridge in West Virginia. Materials that fit into the context were desired, with an emphasis on the spectacular view.
Site constraints included steep drop-offs on one side and rocky cliffs on the other limiting the size and configuration of the house and requiring the contractor to blast tons of rock from the site before construction.
The design solution includes a natural stone exterior and hip roof blending this spacious home into its mountain environment. When entering, one's eye immediately passes under the second floor bridge through the two-story Great Room to the spectacular view over the cliffs beyond.
The timeless style and quality crafts-manship of this home met the client's goals.
Contractor: John E. Myers & Son, L.L.C.
