Steeped with old New England farmhouse charm inside, the exterior takes on a fresh spirit with clean, dramatic lines from the steel-clad gabled roofs to the sturdy entrance posts and broad window spans. A new, 4900-square-foot addition seamlessly complements the original home and provides gracious living room, bath and main entrances, private studies and a master suite. The smaller, original home, was carefully renovated and now includes a spacious dining room.
Fieldstone piers and ground-level walls anchor this 16-room house to its oceanfront site in this contemporary interpretation of the Shingle Style in an exciting and engaging manner. Designed with large family gatherings in mind, the home includes four guest suites, a mahogany study, a media room, and a gorgeous cherry bar. Strong horizontal roof lines and cantilevered covered porches create the feeling of being aboard a luxurious ship, while gently curved balconies offer each guest their own private outdoor space.
Crested upon oceanside ledges, this sprawling summer compound was designed to capture the sweeping views of Muscongus Bay with a traditional design aesthetic. The compound consists of a 3-bedroom, 4-bath main house, and a 4-bedroom, 5-bath guest house linked by an exquisite, year-round, garden-room conservatory. The use of vernacular forms and materials, in combination with careful detailing, evokes a feeling of stately living.
Sited on an outcropping of rock with a 270-degree view of Penobscot Bay, this cottage gracefully integrates horizontal lines that meld with the landscape and disappear into nature. Long, sweeping overhangs and deep, covered porches on all exposures create a sense of shelter, while low hip roofs establish harmony with the rocky surroundings. A subtle theme of curves is seen inside, from the curved kitchen cabinets to the master bedroom turret. The two-story entry and stair hall frame stunning views of the bay from their soaring windows.
Stretching along the coastline, this 9000-square-foot, four-bedroom, four-and-a-half-bath home is anchored to its rocky site with a sturdy fieldstone base. A unique harmony of curves and arches — reflected in the detailing of the front entry, seaside porches and sitting room — its classic fenestration of the library, living room, stair foyer, and repeating patterns borrowed from Shingled ancestry, give this house a stately and confident feel.
