Taft / Todd House

Truro, Massachusetts
This project page was created by community member KRUEGER ASSOCIATES ARCHITECTS

On land that was formerly a farm, an existing 19th century farmhouse has been integrated into a 21st century family compound. The farmhouse, with a new open-plan kitchen/dining addition, now anchors a cluster of buildings that also includes a new guest house, and a third building, a new storage shed that will become a future guesthouse. An entry courtyard leading to the parking area is formed by the buildings and the former orchard. The courtyard planting design was provided by C.L. Fornari of Osterville. The shape and location of the guest house recalls an existing garage, used as a gardening shed that was relocated nearby on the property.

The compound overlooks a large rolling lawn, and has a beautiful eastern view of the Pamet River marsh. Overgrown plantings along the road were replaced with a lush privacy hedge consisting of a mixture of junipers, pines, and flowering viburnum provided by HF Johnson Tree Farm of Osterville.
