Inspired by the diminutive “Carpenter Palladio” farmhouses that were typical in the Hudson River Valley, the Cross House merges the symmetrical volumes of classical architecture with a contemporary open plan. External proportions are rigorously Albertian while the interior details are a simple evocation of Shaker architecture.
The first floor consists of living, dining, kitchen and service areas. The second floor houses three bedrooms and two bathrooms. The house is wood frame construction with gray clapboard siding.
