Custom Residence
Amherst, NH

This 8000 sf home, built for a burn victim and her young family, was conceived as an environmentally-controlled sanctuary for her recovery.

From the serene views of the landscaped hillside acreage to the indoor pool colonnade, each room and window was carefully considered to promote harmony, peace and relaxation for mental and physical therapeutic effect. The drive and four-car attached garage was designed to screen the primary residence from view.

Since the owners were heavily involved with the healing process, they rarely left the home. Amenities were programmed to provide them with leisure at will, such as a projector media room, computerized golf simulator room, game room and indoor heated therapy-swimming pool with hydronic greenhouse.

A formal foyer, living room, dining room, drawing room all feature Rumford fireplaces. Offices were built accompanied by a chef's kitchen, master suite and private baths for each of six bedrooms. Full service nurse and guest quarters were provided for overnight stays. The most advanced controls were wired-in to monitor every room for environmental temperature/humidity comfort, as well as lighting, music and communications throughout the house.
