Plan Description

This plan is designed for very small waterfront lots. The shape of the house plays with positive and negative spaces to make the house feel larger than it really is. By providing large walls of glass and outdoor decks, the house seems to flow to the outside visually. The first floor is an over-sized 2 car garage that allows plenty of storage. The second floor is the main floor with an open plan for the kitchen, dining and living room. The open space looks out onto the decks and the water beyond. The outdoor deck has a grille area just outside the kitchen for outdoor parties. The oversize decks allow for lounging and enjoying the ocean breezes. A bedroom that could be converted to a study is on this floor too, along with a full bathroom. The top floor has the master suite with a large a bathroom with a soaking tub and steam shower. The closet is a large walk-in closet. The master bedroom is over-sized to allow for a sitting area to relax and enjoy the ocean views or you can go out onto the deck to relax. There is a third bedroom that is a suite with its own full bath on the top floor. The exterior of the house is designed to resist the salt air. The walls are hardi-board siding, the roof is aluminum metal roof and the soffits are a composite material. The storm shutters roll up into a concealed space when not in use. The house is built on pilings that go 25 feet into the ground to resist storms.
