With a hilltop vantage point, the Tryon Hill House enjoys 360-degree views of Prince Edward Island’s classic, rolling farmland.

Tryon Hill House incorporates a unique, compartmentalized plan. Inspired by the owners’ desire for separation between a main residence and guest space, the functions of the home manifest a series of interconnected gables. Their arrangement and form nod to the now-retired owners’ farming lives while introducing bolder, contemporary tones and features.

The angular array kinks back toward itself, creating varied views of wooded zones and surrounding farmland. The distinctive angles are preserved throughout the interior, enhancing the perception of transition when moving throughout the spaces.

A central glass gable joins the main residence to the guest wing and serves as the main entryway. This bright transitional space accommodates a sun-kissed reading room and uninterrupted sightlines from the front of the house to the back property.
