Pleasant Valley Residence 4

Completed in 2013 by Michael Graves Architecture & Design, Pleasant Valley Residence is a weekend getaway located in Hunterdon County, New Jersey. With 7,800 SF in size, this residence is designed with three new structures and a simple linear plan to organize its room.

The architectural character of this residence maintains the spirit of stone outbuildings and an old white-clapboard farmhouse. For this project, this residence is designed with three new structures: a three-car-garage, a guest house, and a weekend house. These structures are grouped around a large informal courtyard with awesome views.

A kitchen, dining room, and living room are organized by a simple linear plan on the ground floor with bedrooms above. These bedrooms are facing woods and cornfields to the south to reinforce the living sense in the countryside comfortably.
