This new 5 bedroom home contains 9,749 sq. ft. of finished living area on the 1st floor, 2nd floor, and lower level and was designed and built for a couple with 3 at-home children in their late teens and early 20’s. It is built on a 28-acre parcel and has views to the ocean from a 3rd floor observatory which is accessed by a spiral staircase on the 2nd floor. The oldest son lives in the area over the 4-car garage and the space is virtually a separate apartment.
Architecturally, the combination of shingles and stone lend them to a distinctive style reminiscent of older New England seaside homes. The south facing rear of the home takes advantage of the abundance of sunshine while covered porches take away its harshness. The rear façade can be seen on the initial approach to the home before the winding drive leads one to the main entry motor court. A separate guest house, presently under construction, stands guard on this approach and is a microcosm of the larger home. Distinctive features such as a window in the chimney of the family room fireplace, soaring ceilings and sweeping staircases add to the originality of the design. The home also has full wine-making facilities on the lower level as this is a hobby of the homeowners.
