Drumlin Hall is a new classical stone house designed as a modern day version of a Federal style villa, echoing the architecture of Robert Adam and the craftsmanship of Duncan Phyfe. The house has four symmetrical facades, each with a different, but related design. The complex geometries of the interior are arranged around a central stair hall that rises to a vaulted, top lit gallery on the second floor. The grained library boasts small, domed book recesses on either side of the fireplace; between them is a bar concealed behind the chimney breast. The second floor gallery is the most dramatic interior in the house, and its vaults and handkerchief dome rise up into the attic. The decoration of the rooms, sensitively carried out by Jayne Design Studio, reinforces the classical nature of the design and the antique furniture.
