Boat House

 

The romance and aesthetic of life at sea, without any close-quartered discomforts, anchor this beachside home for clients whose inspirations were both deep historical roots and contemporary clutter-free lines. The result is an eco-friendly seaside home that captures the expansiveness of the open ocean and the comforts of a luxury liner.

A second-floor screened porch expands into a spectacular ocean view.
Viewed from the land, the three gables of Boat House evoke three great sails.
Sailcloth curtains, a deck-planked floor, and a port hole window keep everything ship shape.
The elegant first-floor entry hall greets guests on the bedroom-level of this upside-down house.
Lighted support beams bring the lines of sailboat rigging into the upper decks.
Seafaring themes blend cozy cottage charm with clean clutter-free lines.
Floor, walls, ceiling, and staircase use visible wood planking made from eco-friendly lumber.
