Danko Bayer House
Size: 3500 sf
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 interior transformation yielded a vast, open kitchen, dining and living space with 20-foot ceilings and exterior views from end to end. The 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; salvaged barn board siding wraps around the island.
The entrance 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 weatherproofing. The extensive, sloping property includes beautiful drystone walls and a lower pond with a small bathing house.
