Most often the chalets that we discover are surrounded by the spectacular Alps and draped in luxury or they offer unabated views of unending ski slopes in getaways such as. But the is a touch different from these usual opulent affairs. Designed by Boom Town and surrounded by a picturesque serene landscape this gorgeous private residence brings the timeless beauty of a woodsy chalet to the modern home.
Acting as a perfect gateway between both ecosystems is the stunning designed by Bates Masi Architects. The exquisite contemporary residence spread across was largely defined by both the coastal and wetland ‘zoning laws’ that forced the architects to make the best use of the available lot sandwiched between the two zones.
The top level features the living spaces along with bedrooms and a home gym while the bottom level houses additional public space along with a media room a library and a couple of home offices. A sunken outdoor lounge with a fireplace a refreshing pool with an exquisite pool house and curated gardens and walkways shape the outdoors.
The fresh ingenious addition acts as a bridge between the interior and the backyard as large outdoor living zones create transition spaces between the two. Apart from the refreshing pool and a lovely garden the presence of a large screen with vertical timber slats ensures that the landscape outside becomes an organic extension of the living area itself. Combining adequate privacy and ample shade with a controlled stream of natural light the timber screen brings both aesthetic appeal and functionality to the house.
Placing practicality ahead of mere aesthetics the living area kitchen and dining space have been designed to multitask as ‘social zones’ thanks to operable partitions. Gorgeous bedrooms and luxurious bathrooms with an unabated view of the Atlantic complete this fascinating home.
