The main challenge of this site, was that it was a long & narrow lot that had a beautiful river in the back that was the main focus from the new house. The clients also preferred the design to be a stone French Country Style house, and did not want the front to be consumed by the three bay garage.

JCA’s solution was to set the garage into the side of this narrow plan that required that the wall with the garage doors needed to be recessed to allow the space to the side yard to back out! As you see in this plan, the family room, kitchen, master bedroom suite and a large rear terrace were placed such that they all enjoy the water views behind the house.
