Notice the main house with it sweeping lawn, lovely porches and cedar shingle roof. The quintessential beach house!
The living room and dining room have many antique architectural elements incorporated in their design. Notice the columns. The chandeliers were all imported from Paris.
The kitchen features a professional eight burner Parisian stove and a two story breakfast area with a dramatic wall of whitewashed Boston brick. Notice the post and beams built in with the whitewashed brick. It is difficult to tell for sure, but it looks like a slate or soapstone counter. I love the antique mirror over the fireplace and vintage wooden doors. These rooms also include chandeliers from Paris. I love the whitewashed wooden ceiling and railings in the top photo.
The spectacular Library features unparallelled craftsmanship. Notice the work over the fireplace and again the chandelier from Paris.
The Master bedroom has an incredible arched ceiling, wood paneling and built in bed. The effect is similar to the main sleeping cabin of a luxury yacht. The wood has been slightly distressed and whitwashed. Chandeliers again from Paris. Here is a close up picture of the French doors.
The master bath is magnificent with glass etched doors reminiscent of Lalique styling. Notice the white marble floors with the dark wood. Stunning!
Architectural splendor! The circular staircase with hand forged iron railing brings you up the turret to the guest house.
The Guest House is a charming retreat. Whitewashed beams, painted furniture , iron beds and a blue and white color scheme are lovely.
No beach house is complete with out a pool area. This seems to be an area with out the same level of thought and planing. I do not care for the fence.
The final view through a small window in the upstairs of the house shows the water and the pool perched above. It is hard to believe this house is new construction. Makes me hopeful that wonderful building craftsmen still exist in America.
