Situated beneath the sweeping boughs of mature oaks on its one-acre Bay-front site, this re-envisioned dwelling combines its traditional, Southern-style exterior with contemporary, well-sequenced living spaces. Rustic, natural elements such as rough-sawn, Cypress wood beams are incorporated with refined finishes and modern fixtures to create a harmonious atmosphere that is artistically composed and at the same time comfortable and inviting to live in. A dramatic wood-burning fireplace in the living room dictates flow from the main entrance into either the private master bedroom suite, occupying the east end of this single-level home, or the dining and living rooms.The master bedroom features views to the Bay and access to a tremendous, 16 by 36-foot screened porch. Each living space opens onto a screened or covered porch, increasing the home's capacity for indoor to outdoor entertaining. A natural stone paved patio surrounded by lush landscaping leads to a 16 by 40-foot swimming pool and is gently terraced to 220 feet of Bay frontage where a dock extends to a boat house, equipped with four lifts. A detached cottage is convenient to the dock for relaxing after a day on the water, escaping the main house or accommodating guests. It features its own kitchenette and bath. A Chef's kitchen with stainless steel appliances, solid Cherry wood cabinets, slate tile floors and solid slab granite countertops occupies a central location in the main house between the dining and family rooms, enjoying views over the patio to the Bay. Three guest bedrooms with vaulted, wood beam and paneled ceilings occupy the west end of the home. An exceptional floor plan and balanced use of materials creates a harmonious atmosphere that captures both the spirit of the original structure and conveniences of modern living.
