A very special home on the Muirfield Village Golf Club course is the setting for this unique Georgian Colonial room addition. It’s a private, contemplative space, connected to the owner’s office, designed to provide for a few moments of quiet in this busy executive’s otherwise hectic day.
The views to the outside from the perfectly octagonal room are of gardens, a large pond, and lush green lawns.
Inside, light pours in from 6 pairs of tall windows, and from the eight-sided roof lantern above. A rustic stone fireplace, with a reclaimed wood mantle, brings the outdoors in, and softens the formal shape of the room.
The room replaces a small patio that was rarely used. I connected the new room to the house with a smaller “vestibule” that gives a sense of separation to the room, and has glass doors on one side that connect to brick steps, leading to the backyard and pool.
The workmanship makes a completely seamless connection to the existing house, and the design of the addition, with it’s massive brick chimney, provides only the slightest hints that it wasn’t a part of the original.
Kudos to Joe Patacca of Highlands Company for building this with great care and attention to the smallest details of the design.
