The Japanese influence is clear in this mountain home that features simple lines, plenty of wood and the echo of Shoji screens in the design of the garage door. The home, a beloved collaboration with the late Architect, James Dayton is designed blend into its surroundings, with a peaceful flow from indoors to outdoors and room to room. The commanding 16-foot fireplace made of stone from the British Isles is the heart of the home. It sits between the living room and dining room, creating a warm and inviting gathering place. The glass stairway in the entry way demonstrates the modern influences, as do the plentiful windows and balconies that overlook onto the property’s serene pond.
