An escape to the beach means for most people being able to live in a way completely and gloriously different from the way in which they live day to day. Located in a beautiful seaside village, our classically simple beach house is a study in serenity.
Thick masonry walls are finished in warm, light-reflecting white stucco. Strategically placed windows align perfectly with tall French doors to catch all available seasonal breezes. Heavy exterior louvered blinds can be pulled-to, filtering out the strongest summer sun or protecting against the most unexpected coastal shower. Porches and balconies wrap the house extending the living area into the walled garden or offering views to the shore and to the sea’s horizon beyond. A rooftop terrace allows one to see north, south, east and west! In the time honored tradition of southern coastal architecture the principal floor is raised above the ground floor permitting the freshest air and the best light. Here, although carefully defined by their special ceiling treatments, the living room, dining room and kitchen are visually open, one to the other. Children’s bedrooms are ensconced in the level above, while two master suites occupy the garden floor below. Conveniently, a balconied walkway connects the guest house to the living area of the main house. Most unusual for a beach house is the full basement. This carefully engineered level allows a house with a relatively compact footprint to have unexpected spaciousness: a recreational room for the children and their friends; a wine cellar; a family office and lots of storage.
