This coastal site has conservation restrictions that protect the trees, a coastal bank, and wetlands. Because of this, site development was limited and required careful planning to maximize its potential. It was also desirable for the pool house to have a separate character from the main house, but regulatory requirements dictated that they be connected. To accomplish this, the two are joined by a breezeway.
Down a winding country road, this house and its entry are designed to be seen from the road, but do not face it. The driveway crosses in front of the entry and leads to garage doors concealed to the public. The house is based on the classic Shingle Style, but is very horizontal, with a broad gable and big roof overhangs. Outdoor living is a focal point at the property, with a long back porch, large screened-in porch, outdoor kitchen, cascading terraces, fire pit, and infinity-edge pool. There is extensive stonework in the landscape.
