‘Hudson Valley Country House’ – A Welcoming Timber Home
Not exactly a typical cozy log cabin, nonetheless the grand design of the ‘Hudson Valley Country House’ provides a welcoming refuge away from the hustle and bustle of daily life.
This spacious and modern wooden home is by Fractal Construction. Surprisingly, this imposing structure came in kit form, therefore, it was remarkably quick and efficient to erect. The whole house has been clad in timber over a modern prefabricated structure. This gives the building its warm protective appearance and elements of rustic charm. Mellow timber structures and features are also introduced throughout the modern interior adding warmth to the contemporary decoration scheme.
Luxury wooden home in Hudson Valley
Situated in upstate New York the luxurious appeal of this modern wooden home can be most fully appreciated from the inside. Large rectilinear spaces provide the defining feature of the structure of this impressive country house. Massive floor to ceiling windows enable daylight to flood through the contemporary decoration scheme of the interior living spaces. This important connection between the natural landscape that surrounds the house and the interior is instantly apparent. The glorious verdant woodland scenery becomes an immediate design feature within the contemporary decoration scheme. The emphasis on the installation of glass has produced a modern wooden home where barriers between natural and manmade elements have been reduced to a bare minimum. Illustrating this point, the pool area seems to have become part of the living room. As the designers say “A wall of folding doors can be opened entirely onto the tantalizing indoor pool that looks out to the woodlands creating an edge that blends the indoors with outdoors”

A feature bridge is a spectacular focal point within this modern wooden home design. It is at once sculptural and practical linking the garage to the main house and also providing access to the terraced areas of the outdoor space. The house has been designed for an energetic family so introducing a ‘no barriers’ open plan element assists passage of movement from one space to another. In this open environment family members can be absorbed in their own activities but still be in contact with each other.

These add a surprising refining quality to the more robust features of this family home. Personal touches such as this can be seen throughout the modern interior reminding us that this is a highly individual home is occupied and enjoyed by a unique family.
