Among the many roles a house takes on in the lives of those who call it home, retreat is perhaps one of the most important and overlooked. A home should be a place of escape. Home should be where you are most comfortable and at peace. Home, more than any other place, should be where you feel most free to be yourself. It could also be said that home is where you shape who you are, a foundation for growing and nurturing family. After all, the greatest amenity of any house is the family who calls it home.
