English Cottage exterior

English Cottage

Chestnut Hill, Massachusetts
The charming exterior of this home, reminiscent of those found in the English countryside, belies the contemporary architectural style within. Curved doorways, hallways, and windows form a continual connected relationship between the interior spaces. A glass conservatory, made from custom fabricated steel with a conical skylight is a highlight of this unusual property. The exterior brick patio, laid out in the shape of a vesical piscis, beautifully integrates into the traditional boxwood garden beyond.

“Circular designs repeat throughout the house to create a connected flow between the interior and exterior spaces and the home’s natural surroundings.”
