| The house seeks to combine
the casual air of seaside shingle style homes with the flowing
open plan and amenities emblematic of a modern lifestyle. The
effect is of a house that feels like an every-day getaway.
The approach to the double gabled front façade of the
house is via a Maple tree lined drive to a drive court. Upon
entering the house a sequence of elegant rooms are revealed
culminating in a two-story book-lined library. The main living
spaces look out to a romantic pool house, pool and rear yard
through a long curving veranda which shields the summer sun.
Amongst the features of the house are an open kitchen,
ground level indoor spa, kid’s computer lounge, and a yoga room
within the master suite. A special activity oriented basement
consists of a theater, exercise room, playroom and 15 foot high
The house also features discreetly located solar panels
which provide hot water to the house and a green roof area.
