This Idyllic Country Home Was Inspired By Classic New England Barns

Founded in 1984, Birdseye Design is a Richmond, Vermont-based architectural firm specializing in thoroughly modern interpretations of classic New England barn and residential designs. Birdseye’s works litter the northeastern US, though the award-winning firm has now added to its already-impressive portfolio with the unveiling of its latest home, Bank Barn.

Set on a sprawling 27-acre plot in Vermont’s Green Mountains, the three-story house is partially built into the natural slope of the land’s meadow. The entire home rests on a concrete foundation, with additional concrete walls at the eastern and western sides, sandwiching in the remainder of the glass-laden and exposed steel beam-structured dwelling. Three bedrooms occupy the top floor, while the middle level boasts a kitchen, dining/living room, and an office all within a spacious, open floor plan, while the ground floor features a large lounge area and some utility rooms — with all three floors connected via three sets of quarter-turn staircases that jet up through the entirety of the barn-inspired building. Outside, the patina’d cedar-clad structure sports a garage and driveway at one end, while the other opens into a matching cedar deck with a sunken hot tub, and a staircase leading down to a concrete fire pit patio.
