Burnt Mill Residence in Chadds Ford

please scroll to view project

Located along a hilltop meadow, this new 5,000 square-foot home for a family of four (plus dogs) was designed to reflect the Pennsylvania farmhouse vernacular from the more refined Federal and Georgian periods. The main theme for the home was to marry the homeowners desire for a traditional exterior with a more open, contemporary floor plan. Significantly, the clients chose to be very involved in the design process, which resulted in a true collaboration with Period Architecture.

On the exterior, an embellished cornice with dental molding, a decorative entry transom, and arched-top Palladian dormer windows enhance the historically influenced presence of the home. Additional details such as the cedar shake roof and bespoke metalwork further distinguish the stone elevations.

The interior boasts the same attention to traditional design with painted millwork, wide plank reclaimed white oak floors, and wrought iron light fixtures; yet it also accords an expansive floor plan, a state-of-the-art kitchen, geothermal heating and cooling, and large windows to frame the views and draw in the light. State-of-the-art technology is ingeniously hidden behind paintings and cabinetry. The open plan of the kitchen, dining and living rooms are spatially demarcated with cabinets and millwork.
