The foyer's 8-foot-high paneling offers spots for favorite paintings.
Previous homes influenced many of Tom and Sally's preferences. After living in two light-deprived residences, they insisted on a floor plan that allowed for plenty of sunlight and views of the outdoors. They also wanted a traditional-looking home, with built-in window seats, paneling, and other architectural features they had enjoyed in an earlier home. David designed a stone-and-shingle house with a kitchen-family room wing that angles outward from the foyer. "The house rambles along the site, responding to the views and the sun," he says. "We wanted a plan that flows out into the landscape and is open."
