Chestertown Modern

On the Chester River

INSPIRED BY THE CLIENT’S desire to design a modern home that blends into its surrounding riverside environment, this residence effortlessly integrates itself with nature. The home’s exterior incorporates horizontal board and batten siding painted a deep, earthy brown, ensuring the structure is softly indiscernible until you are in close proximity. The modern vernacular is further expressed through simple and clean lines, a tinted metal roof, and wall-to-wall glass on the waterside.

The intentionally single-story home is laid out in a stream of connected pods, each with direct access to the outside waterfront. A screen porch with Ipe decking and a stucco fireplace runs the length of the great room and kitchen, ensuring each space boasts expansive views of the Chester River. ⁠Special attention was paid to the great room ceiling detail, where square box beams “picture frame” painted wooden planks, creating interest and subtle contrast.
