The Village at Silver Hill/ In Design
The original Silver Hill homes were developed in the early 20th century as one of Weston’s first sub-divisions. Largely a mix of Queen Anne styles the homes feature covered porches facing the road. The proposed Village at Silver Hill project seeks to fit seamlessly into the neighborhood by taking its cues from this vernacular. The 10 homes are designed to be a fresh version of the neighboring Queen Anne homes by employing gable ends to the street, covered porches out front, a mix of traditional and patterned siding materials and window pattern configurations and steeper roof pitches among other elements. Traditional colors for each of the home’s exteriors will be employed.
The new home designs will be approximately 3,200 square feet, with two affordable units in the 2,000 square foot range. They feature open floor plans with plenty of natural light as well as comfortably sized bedrooms. All of the units except one are designed with first level master bedroom suites to appeal to the aging baby boomer market. Each home has 2 ½ baths and a separate laundry room. They will contain a two car attached garage and ample storage. Basement space will be designed to be finished. In addition to the covered porches, each home will have a dedicated deck or patio area designed to maximize privacy for the homeowners.
