The winner of the HomeByMe January Project of the month is ckdrp and the winning project is hillhouse! Please join us in congratulating ckdrp for creating such a warm and welcoming project. When it’s cold outside and the winds are blowing, this would be a great place to relax near the fire and enjoy some company in the great room. You’ll see that the rest of the house is just as comfortable.
Hillhouse is spread out and up – all four floors of it. The ground floor has ample room for the great room (including the kitchen and a dining area), an entryway parlor, home office, two guest bedrooms and the garage. The second floor (floor 1) has a roomy den overlooking the great room in one wing and the huge master suite in the other. The third floor (floor 2) has the “kid’s zone” and plenty of storage. The tippy top fourth floor (floor 3) is called the “Aerie” and is meant for enjoying the view and or using the sun porch. There’s so much to be seen and enjoyed – let’s get started.
Standing in the entryway you can go straight into the parlor, left into the great room, or right into a large room with access to the home office and two guest bedrooms.
As you move into the left wing, you’ll enter the great room with the dining area and kitchen as well as the ultra comfy living room.
Another great room for relaxing is just up the stairs in the kitchen. You can enjoy the balcony overlooking the den below and have a view outside through the windows on the far wall.
To the right out of the entryway, you’ll find the home office/library with it’s own fireplace and abundance of warm wood.
The master suite is complete with an outside porch, a big bedroom and huge dressing area and the bathroom.
The master bathroom includes everything you would hope for and continues the use of warm colors and materials found throughout the home.
The “Aerie” is at the very top with the best views in the house. Lots of easy seating is ready for anyone to sit awhile and relax.
This home is truly fantastic. I would think that the hardest choice would be to decide which area to enjoy next!
Now it’s your turn!
