Hudson Valley FarmsteadBack to Projects list
- Coxsackie, NY, USA
Sometimes there are places on a property that keep drawing you back again and again. The narrow yard behind this old farmhouse was one of those places. Although it’s set behind the house, there is a sense that your view commands the entire property. Years ago, those who selected this site must have also appreciated this vantage point. Only a light touch is needed to set such a location apart. A stone wall and terrace were enough to define the space under a canopy of shade trees like a sketch that suggests more than it actually delineates.
