Set on a vast acreage replete with century-old trees, this unique residence is a love letter to multigenerational living and a testament to how good design can ward off sprawl, waste and an institutional feel. Constructed by Okwen Contracting, the deluxe property is more akin to a luxurious boutique hotel with just eight guests than to a suburban home.
Four households wanted to come together and support one another through the various demands of old age, professional pressure, and child rearing. They were: two sets of aging grandparents (one frequently abroad), one set of professional parents with a young daughter, and one elderly uncle.
This group of extended family dreamed of a luxurious modern home that would offer private spaces for each branch of the family, shared spaces they could all enjoy, and resources (a spa-like indoor pool and sauna) they might not otherwise splash out for.
Above all, the building takes aging-in-place to its zenith. Smooth transitions, an elevator, wheelchair accessibility throughout, and a tucked-away nurse’s suite ensure that almost any level of care can be provided at home comfortably and with dignity and style.
