Located in a coastal Maine subdivision this shingle style residence is a vacation home for a family of three. The focal point of the main level is a vaulted Great Room with distant views of the ocean. This space includes a stone fire place, built-ins and is directly open to the adjacent kitchen. A stairway leading to the upper level anchors the rear of the space and allows for views from a bridge above. The bridge is wide enough for a small sitting area making it feel visually part of the Great Room below. The Master Suite is located on the main level allowing our clients to be able to live on one floor.

The upper level is comprised of two supporting bed rooms which are separated by the bridge. Finished space over the garage accommodates a Family Room and Guest Bed Room. The plan is carefully strategized to maximize views of the ocean while carefully avoiding the visual impact of the neighboring houses. The resulting thin shape works well within the parameters of the site and helps to overcome challenging height restrictions. The resulting exterior proportions are graceful and relate to turn of the century shingle style aesthetics.
