Chosen by BALA judges for its simple elegance, impeccable execution of details and organic relationship to its wooded, in-town lot, the 3,400-square-foot home is not authentically Arts & Crafts, although it looks it. It uses modern building technologies and materials in addition to handcrafted millwork and cabinetry to achieve a balance between the old and new; the home is low-maintenance and designed to fit the needs of a family while still embodying the Arts & Crafts ideals of simplicity and craftsmanship.
