Designed for a family with young children, this French Norman-style home exudes a stately bearing, but the overall design is oriented towards sun-filled, open rooms and an indoor-outdoor lifestyle with an inviting loggia, terrace, pool and fire pit. Two sets of steel-framed doors in the casual dining area open to the covered loggia with its timbered, vaulted ceiling. Throughout the main level, thick wood beams and stone or wood floors reinforce the friendly, country house aesthetic. A spacious theater and large game room downstairs are ideal for fun and relaxation.
