Seapine Gables

Eight gable shapes are used on Seapine Gables to create a roofscape that brings definition to a compact footprint that includes living spaces, an integral two car garage, a screened-in porch, a small front porch, and a second-floor balcony. The second-floor footprint is nearly equal to that of the first, yet at the front façade the scale is reduced by first-floor roof eaves to be similar to one-and-a-half story houses—typical in the neighborhood of mostly Cape Cod Cottage style homes. Garage doors are hidden from the street and reached by a gracious, gently curving driveway that passes by the front entry façade from across a flat plain of lawn and stone walkways.

The entry porch is shallow to avoid using up too much of the buildable footprint on the highly regulated waterfront site, but the stout classical columns emphatically announce entry, as do the gabled dormer above and the slightly projecting gabled wings to either side.

A simple, vernacular classicism is the result. Once through the symmetrical sequence of approach from driveway to entry porch, the informality of relaxed seaside living takes over. The front door is casually set off to one side of the porch and it opens to a modest hall. A slight turn presents a view through the house to the water and separates an open work/music space from the circulation.

One large room with sub spaces defined by arched openings and simple ceiling shapes accommodates living, dining, and kitchen across the waterfront side.

A screened-in porch occurs right off the space and shares the view. Similar to the exterior of the house, simple, classical details characterize the interior.

The primary suite on the second floor takes in the spectacular view and has direct access to the balcony.

Even the bathroom participates in the view and is full of light with its windows and high ceilings.
