This new Berkshires home was constructed around the ruins of seven chimneys left from a home that stood on the site two hundred years earlier. The owner’s program called for a formal front façade to face the road and a more romantic rear composition of two porches and walkways to interact with the intact gardens of the previous dwelling.

The interior features a classical plan, with first floor public rooms divided by a two-story entry and four bedrooms upstairs. A two-story gallery wing extends from the back of the kitchen to shield the gardens from garages and the service entry.
