Classic summer home designed by Mark Hutker Architect, built to enjoy the outdoors, views, and of course the sun. With outdoor living spaces, extensive elevated decks and terraces were incorporated into the design. With its simple white painted trim and cedar shingles, the home reflects the design sensibilities of traditional architecture in the area.
Description from Architect :
The site is surrounded by water, which from a design standpoint is good thing. However, it was also in a sense a bad thing. The home needed to be set a certain distance back from the water, so that defined a small footprint. It seems larger than it is because of the expanse of windows and doors.
This is a destination house for the clients and their family and friends, so it receives greater use in the summer. The interior rooms are designed to breathe openly into the terraces and landscape.
An expressive exterior stone wall organizes three different terraces: a covered wood deck along the house edge, an open stone terrace for exterior dining, and a lower cobbled terrace set into the landscape.
