Danko Bayer House
Situated on a beautiful hillside in New York’s Catskills Mountains, this project included a complete re-design of an existing house with only the footprint and roofline remaining.
The transformation of the 3,500 sf interior created a “great room” for kitchen, dining and living with 20-foot ceilings and exterior views from end to end. The new dining area looks onto a large cedar deck, with steps down to a planned pool area. The “open” kitchen features thick walnut shelving and walnut counters, with salvaged barn board siding wrapping the island.
A redesigned entrance and vestibule provides a view through the house and out onto the “bridge” deck that extends from the master bedroom. Spacious exterior decks around the house take advantage of the mountain vistas across the valley below. The white-washed cement board exterior siding is installed as a rain-screen to allow for continuous insulation and weather proofing. The extensive, sloping property includes beautiful stone walls and a lower pond with a small bathing house.
