Project Description

Snuggled below the branches of our nostalgically aging coastal character oaks of "Old Seagrove", the Residence is a jewel of an abode. The hidden oasis sparkles with its unique harmony and crafted spirit, sited atop a crested barefoot sandy lane, just steps from its lovely neighborhood beach shore and the town of Seaside. With the walls reflecting the glisten of our sugar sand beaches and the complimenting architectural detailing wrapped in the hues of our aqua toned waters, this residence is a living sanctuary engaged in its preciously natural environment. This organically industrial, modern coastal cottage is a magical refuge to its family and many friends. Carefully and strategically positioned on its 50' x 100' shady site, the southwesterly tucked courtyard enjoys interactive engagement from all of the ground level living spaces. Fresh, fun and spirited in character, the 4 bedroom / 3.5 bath cottage occupies 2600 sq.ft. of interior footprint space, yet doubles in inspired majestic dimensional space with the dynamics of its creatively arranged volumes and scaled passages & proportions. Designed with unique and unusually tall 10' doors, the home affords uninterrupted and shared exchange between indoors and out, with its constantly evolving play of light & views and the unifying romance of the privately engaging outdoor water featured lounging haven (with endless pool & spa). The hand stained basket weave brick floors tickle your toes as you flow from the outdoor trickle of the copper waterspouts to the warmth of the modern edged core tin steel clad indoor fire feature. Complimented by the eccentricity of its hand rubbed metal rebar staircase spindles and the beach antiqued wide plank white oak hardwood floors, this home bellows "Easy & Joyful to Live in"! The sensual nouveau arts & crafts styling gently reaches out to you with the flowing details of the articulated wood bracketry, shutters, gates and iron embellishments. Custom handcrafted cabinetry and furniture, designed by the Architect, nurture the various spaces and are utterly complimented by the warmth and stylish refinements of a pair of quintessential modern classic Eames lounge chairs and Hans Wegner shell chair.
