Shingle Style on the Point

Set on a stunning waterfront site — a peninsula that enjoys 270 views — this new 8,600 square-foot Shingle Style house was designed to take full advantage of the water views and provide a suitable setting both for family life and large numbers of guests. The rooms are aligned like a strand of pearls: the more private section of the house lies to the east and includes a guest suite and octagonal library; the more formal gathering spaces occupy the middle portion; and the large family room, kitchen and screened porch lie to the west — with easy access to the pool and terrace. All areas enjoy water views.

The six-bedroom house has a central double-gabled volume flanked on either side by a pavilion. A one-car garage is set within the main house, but a 2,000 square-foot Shingle Style barn houses the main garage. This post-and-beam structure also contains a wine vault, game room and storage area.
