High Land House

Design for Every Day Enjoyment
This classic shingle style home sits on what may be the very best site in Jamestown on Mackerel Cove - offering a stunning, gentile water view overlooking the gardens. Inside the new construction home, our clients’ formidable art collection presented us with a thrilling aesthetic challenge: create a harmonious presentation of Modern and Asian art within a classically comfortable coastal home.
Our interior space planning, millwork designs and finishes created honored places for their art with materials and details equal to the quality of the collection. We let the art lead the way and were sure to keep our compositions complementary to the artwork, not competitive with it.
The result is a home truly theirs, and one so comfortable it has graduated up from summer home to full-time residence. A truly gratifying result for everyone involved.
Lessons Learned from High Land House
Whether you’re in a vacation property or your forever home, you want to be able to live the life you enjoy the most. Because our clients are avid gardeners, outdoor living features were an important part of this project, including a porch with motorized screens for easy living and maintenance.
You can have breathtakingly beautiful spaces without blowing out your budget. Installing a vaulted ceiling in the kitchen transformed what could have been too cozy of a space into an appealing and inviting room.
