Classic European Residence

Architectural Design & Plans – John Wind

Piper-Wind Architects, Inc.

This artfully-designed, classic European residence emanates old world grace and elegance while accommodating the family in an open, airy, yet cozy atmosphere. The wide center Entry Hall sets the tone with carved antique English pilasters embedded in the paneled walls, and antique French architectural fragments inset above the doorways leading to the Living and Dining Rooms.

Wood molding throughout the home was custom designed and custom milled in proportion to compliment the scale of each specific room. Beveled, tongue & groove, wainscot-height, painted paneling was incorporated to accent the rear and the upstairs hallways.

Also among the numerous distinctive design elements throughout the home are antique sconces and light fixtures, fireplace mantels and bath vanities formed from re-purposed antique furniture and fixtures, textured walls, knotty pine paneling, rough-hewn beams,  and rustic tile and wide plank hardwood floors.
