Sitting in the mountains of Pennsylvania, this 6,500 SF private residence features a mix of modern and rustic elements. Martik Brothers acted as the General Contractor for the project. The design build type project team included Sweeney Shank Architects and Notion Design. The project consisted of sitework, construction of the house, and exterior improvements such as pavers, stamped concrete, and landscaping.
The house sits on 46 acres and combines a rustic lodge feel with a modern twist. On the exterior of the house, the owner went with a thermally modified wood siding mixed with a cembrit panel and real stone, which exemplified the modern rustic feel. When you enter the home, you walk right into the lodge room, which it immediately opens up to 17’ ceilings. The lodge room has a huge stone fireplace and walls covered with reclaimed barn wood.
Throughout the rest of the house, Notion Design was able to utilize difference finishes and fixtures to seamlessly blend the rustic and modern feel. On the exterior, the owner wanted space for entertaining. There is a large deck that covers most of the back portion of the house along with a large stamped concrete pad on the lower level. To finish off the project, landscaping was added to compliment the new structure and hardscape.
