Weston Residence

Stern McCafferty designed this new home for a rural site west of Boston. Carefully planned to meet the needs of a young family, the home is modern in character, with high ceilings, broad expanses of glass and simple, refined detailing. The clean and modern lines of the interior belie an uncompromising focus on warmth and practicality.

The house was designed to integrate with the landscape. Terraces facing south and west extend from interior spaces and create a dramatic sense of connection to the gardens from the private areas of the house.

The light-filled interiors open directly to a private south-facing garden terrace. High ceilings, with a restrained palette of materials, add to the serenity of the interiors.

“The open-riser stair with its glass guardrail reflects the sense of transparency that evolves in the house as one moves from the formal, almost traditional symmetry of the living and dining rooms to the more relaxed spaces beyond”

New England Home

An extensive and spirited collection of art adds color and vivacity to the interiors.

“The trick for this contemporary house — one that the design team clearly mastered — was making the complex design look beautifully uncomplicated.”
