It is cedar and stone that shape this grand holiday home spread across 5,200 square feet, with hints of copper bringing metallic warmth to the interior. It is the cedar ‘straps’ that usher in ample natural light when needed while providing the homeowners with complete privacy. The dark slate walls create a visual contrast indoors, even as decor, rugs and accessories usher in bright pops of color in a restrained fashion. The lower level houses the living area along with the family room, kitchen and dining space, while the bedrooms and bathrooms sit on the top floor.
