Age in place is a top priority with many clients building with Yankee Barn Homes. While clients want a lovely home that serves many purposes, the one feature we see requested time and again is the ability for the home to accommodate the age in place process. Our latest design, The Cooperstown, is a 3030 sq ft farmhouse style post and beam does just this, and more...
Bay View is well underway in the hamlet of Shinnecock Hills, New York. Located within the town of South Hampton, this partial post and beam beauty is beginning to reveal itself.
Living in an Upside-Down Floor Plan
Bay View sits high upon a hill overlooking the bay. To take maximum advantage of the view, the homeowner realized the main level needed to be on the top floor. However, this is not to say the lower level is second best. Not by any stretch. The first floor houses 3 bedrooms, 3 full baths, a guest half-lavatory, a large family room, a gorgeous open staircase with a wall of windows (remember those views) and an elevator. The elevator is a stroke of genius, as the groceries are not going to carry themselves up to the kitchen.
The second level of Bay View is an ideal layout. An open floor plan houses the kitchen, dining and great rooms, capped by a timbered, vaulted ceiling. The master bedroom suite abuts the great room. A discreet entry design of closets and bath affords occupants complete privacy and separation from the communal living space.
The home’s exterior appearance will be one of bright white with black windows. A clean, fresh, and modern appearance sets the tone. Native ocean-side plantings and a full size pool will round out the landscaping.
Post & Beam Living is following this build. We are excited at the prospect of photographing it upon completion. Stay tuned, as you will not want to miss this house. It is guaranteed to be an amazing Yankee Barn home.
