THIS FOUR-STALL BARN with tack room meets the needs of every family member in different ways. For Dad it is a garden feature on axis with the house that creates an elegant backdrop for family events on the lawn, so we created a forecourt at the bottom of the garden that invites gatherings and intensive gardening. For Mom it is a horse oasis away from the cares of her professional practice, so we paid special attention to ease of care for horses and making the Tack Room her personal “She Shed”. For the kids it is a place to run around with friends and enjoy all the assorted animals of the farm, so the goats and ponies have a space and the loft accommodates hay fort building.
