Arts & Crafts Spec House, Rye Brook, NY by DeMotte Architects
Project type: Spec house
Completion date: 2006
Architect: Brad DeMotte, R.A.
Arts & Crafts Home Design by DeMotte Architects
This arts & crafts spec house was designed for a developer on a “tear-down” lot in a residential neighborhood. The architect chose to design a home with “arts & crafts” style detailing.
The 2 story home appears smaller than it is due to the extensive use of dormers. A covered front porch adds curb appeal. It was designed with mahogany decking, tapered bungalow style columns, and a bead board ceiling.
The exterior finishes selected by the architect for low maintenance are fiber cement siding & PVC trim.
