This Nantucket shingle style house was built on three levels with the objective to blend in with the neighborhood while providing all the modern conveniences in a quiet hideaway on Long Island Sound. Every aspect of the house was designed to take advantage of the sweeping panorama of the sandy beach and waterfront.
One of the most appealing features of the home was the ability to relax in the master bedroom suite, enjoying the magnificent water view. From the 14-foot sliding glass pocket doors of the master suite, one entered the great room equipped for all seasons with a gas fireplace topped by a plasma television and nearby antique wet bar for entertaining. The owners wished to stroll year-round onto the mahogany open deck with tempered glass balcony rail system. This aerie was topped by a charming lit cupola for maximum interior sunlight while creating an exterior architectural feature and landmark visible at night from down the beach.
The main floor featured a professionally equipped kitchen with magnificent stone counters highlighting the traditional cabinetry. The room flowed into the dining area warmed by the Brazilian cherry floors throughout. The ground floor had a naturally lighted room wired and ready for use as an exercise room or home office. There was also an oversized mudroom with cabinets, granite counter top, laundry facilities and storage. The double garage featured elegant mahogany doors and poured aquamarine concrete floor to mimic the waterfront.
