Situated on nearly 12 acres of private waterfront property, the design team knew this site called for a special house. From the beginning of the design process, the client stressed the importance of creating a comfortable, informal, and humble home. Often referring to the house as their cottage, the windows and doors in each room frame a unique view: strategically positioned on the property, the 8,000 SF home captures the picturesque scenes of the Isle of Shoals on one side and Boon Island on the other.  

The home's shingle-style exterior, accented with copper roofs, dormers, brackets, and a cupola over the garage, is all an ode to traditional Maine. Inside, classic materials and finishes honor the region's heritage. The program on the main level is open and fluid, encouraging seamless movement throughout the space. As you enter the front door, an unobstructed view of the ocean greets you. Upstairs, the client's art studio is angled towards the ocean for inspiration. At the other end of the house is a modest primary suite with a balcony to enjoy the sunrise. The lower level surprises with a two-lane bowling alley and fitness center. The atmosphere of this home is warm and inviting, offering numerous nooks to curl up with a good book or simply watch the waves crash on the rocky shore.
