Red Dirt Rd House by Amee Allsop
The Australian client based in New York City fell in love with this 1.86 acre wooded property as it reminded her of home. The connection of the house to the landscape and the indooroutdoor living with the large wrap around deck had a distinctive Australian feel. This simple A-framed house, circa 1980, had good bones. However, this gut renovation allowed for a redesign of each bedroom and bathroom in order to maximize the space by adding logic and simplicity. A large skylight was inserted along the ridge of the house flooding the living space and kitchen with light all day long. A slot window in the master bedroom was added to capture the morning light and sky views whilst soaking in the new freestanding tub.
