This all-season weekend home in Taghkanic, New York proves that a house can be beautiful and practical. The house sits on nearly 15 acres of lush valley and mountain space which makes it very private. This house has all the modern conveniences including intimate spaces for cooking, dining and living as well as a dramatic entry gallery. The majority of materials used for the interior of the house are concrete and wood, giving it a very minimalist appearance that allows the beauty of the design to shine through. There are three bedrooms, 2 full baths and 1 partial bath as well as a rooftop deck with gorgeous views that can be enjoyed any time of the year. The construction of this home uses sustainably-sourced Accoya wood skin which was charred using a special Japanese finishing technique, making it look more weathered. This texture and tone are what gives The Sleeve House a contemporary barn-like appearance which fits perfectly with its country location.
