Let’s take a look around the main house…

Architect Andrew Mann and interior designer Katie McCaffrey of Angus – McCaffrey Interior collaborated on the partial remodel of the house, which was originally built in 1974 by Roland Miller Associates.

Andrew focused on form making, while Katie defined a material palette different in feel and mood from their client’s city house. Exposed wood beams and a wood ceiling complement the wood floors and furniture found in the open plan living room and dining area.

In the bathrooms, the color palettes have been kept neutral, with only the tile flooring providing a decorative accent.
