From the outset, Oberon Hill Farmhouse is a special home. Not only does it take the concept of the modern farmhouse up a notch, it has a great story behind its name.
What’s In A Name?
Aside from my rather lame attempt to call up one of his famous quotes, Shakespeare does play a role in the name Oberon Hill. The name Oberon has been with the homeowners since their first date, but they tell the story far better than I do.
From the homeowners: “Oberon is the chosen name of our male Maremma guard dog. The name means loyal bear heart. It is also the name of the king of the fairies in Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream (our first date at Edith Wharton’s estate in Lenox). With his sister Artemis, our Oberon is the guardian over our livestock and fireflies.” As it turns out Mr Shakespeare, there is a great deal in a name.
Oberon Hill Farmhouse
The farmhouse is as unique as it’s inhabitants. The house design employs large amounts of glass to not only create solar gain, but to bring the outdoors in. It is something this family lives every day. Oberon Hill is a farm where life is lived both within and outside of walls. It makes sense for the house to connect both. At 3002 square feet, the three bedroom, two full bath, and two half bath design places all the family living space the side of the home with expansive views of the farm. The wall of glass and the post an beam frame take center stage while presiding over daily life at the farm. The house also provides ample storage space including a large kitchen pantry, walk-in closets, a designated laundry room, a mud room and so much more.
Oberon Hill is currently under construction. We will feature this build again soon as the first glimpses of construction photos promise great things to come.
