Buck Hill Falls | Poconos, PA

A new mountain house evokes a turn-of-the-last-century aesthetic. The design capitalizes on the property’s sweeping Pocono Mountain views by incorporating expansive glass and a generous screened porch.

The views and a steeply sloped site dictated living spaces, including bed and bath suites for the homeowners and their grown children and grandchildren on the upper levels. An elevator provides access to all four floors.

A two-sided stone fireplace and custom millwork highlight the interior, where touches such as reading nooks, built-in shelving, and coffered ceilings lend timeless detail. Partitions adjacent to the fireplace can close off a suite of rooms – including kitchen, study/bedroom, and bath – to create a protected safe zone. The 5,000 SF house’s multiple forms are expressed on the exterior with different materials, including wide and narrow wood ribbon siding and natural stone.
