Just 20 feet wide, this remarkable home from Visbeen Architects (winner of awards at the 2011 and 2012 American Residential Design Awards) presents a solution to a common limitation in waterfront property: a narrow lot. This home makes up for in height and length, maximizing the available space and taking full advantage of what are sure to be expansive views from each of its three stories. Featuring porthole windows and outdoor upper decks, the Pine Cliff exudes a distinctly nautical air, perching on its steep grade like a great docked ship. The entry level functions as the main living space, featuring a half bath, foyer, kitchen, dining room, and glass-walled living room. One floor up is the laundry, bunk room, and sunny master suite. The lower level is home to another bedroom suite and office space. Across the way, through the covered patio alcove is the lower-level family room, complete with kitchenette and walkout access to the water.
