Mullen Estate

“A Traditional European Estate”

Although the site chosen for this elegant European estate offered the seclusion and grandeur sought by the homeowner, the parcel offered something a bit more challenging. The almost 10 acre site was comprised primarily of flood plain.

The opportunities for placement of the home and desired amenities were limited to an area with challenging topography, shape, and size.  In collaboration with the architect, Land Plus developed a footprint for the home that accounted for site access and other physical constraints of the property plus the spatial requirements of the residence itself. 

The homeowner’s program included a number of requirements for this challenging site:  room for adequate guest parking and turn around access; a family motor court area and a pool area. 

Land Plus used the remaining flood plain on the property for a  tennis court and open play area set amongst mature hardwoods and southern pines.
