Tucked into the Dover Plains countryside, this 160-acre compound features outdoor living spaces that have been carefully crafted to celebrate the site’s extraordinary views, rich farm culture, and ecological diversity.


Working closely with the client and local building architect, this design creates a cohesive vision for the property that incorporates locally sourced materials and a diverse palette of indigenous vegetation. An existing meandering gravel road will be realigned to meet the proposed residence. Adjacent to the home, the swimming pool will be located on an elevated platform and defined by a stone well, set to work seamlessly with the existing topography to frame dramatic views of the surrounding landscape. A series of rectilinear retaining walls will define outdoor living spaces, including an entry auto court, courtyard garden, apple orchard, outdoor event space, and floating boat dock. Lou was the Lead Designer and Project Manager for New York Private Estate while at Land Collective.
