Plan Description

Who needs just one room with a view when you can live with and enjoy breathtaking vistas from three floors in this outstanding and innovative 2,861-square-foot design? Narrow waterfront lots are no match for this efficient and easy-living floor plan designed by Visbeen Architects that makes the most of available land and includes the perfect balance of spacious interiors and covered exterior living. The transitional architectural style combines traditional details with clean, sophisticated lines and references both classic and contemporary waterfront vacation homes across the country, from the coastal south to the New England ocean side. Both familiar and welcoming in style, the updated exterior features peaks, wood siding, and multiple window styles. From the street, the innovative design is full of curb appeal, with the first level designed for circulation and outdoor living. Rising from the street level, the home concentrates the majority of living space on the upper two floors, with an efficient floor plan that lives large on all three floors. The lowest level has just 370 well-planned square feet of living space, but features a roomy two-car garage, a foyer and powder room, and two patios perfect for both alfresco dining and entertaining, one an exterior covered area and a nearby uncovered open-air alternative. Inside, the upper floors’ open and light-filled yet intimate rooms take full advantage of the views and make this the perfect getaway for a couple or small family. The 1,130-square-foot midlevel’s public spaces include a 16- by 21-foot living room with a fireplace that leads to a relaxing screened deck overlooking the water. The large, 16- by 19-foot kitchen has all the updated amenities expected in a luxury home, including a two-part central island with room for seating and an adjacent 14- by 10-foot dining area with a built-in bench. A nearby small but functional den/office, a powder room, and an additional small deck perfect for enjoying morning coffee or a sunset drink complete the mid-level offerings. Upstairs, the top floor is devoted to private and personal spaces. The generous master bedroom features a large master bath and its own private deck overlooking the water. Also featured are two additional bedroom suites with maximum privacy and a convenient laundry room.
