This highly customized private residence is built on picturesque seaside property offering an extraordinary 360-degree view of the Atlantic Ocean and lush marshlands of Plum Island.The 1,963 square foot seaside structure is elevated above the sand and built on driven steel piling, as required, so that the natural elements of sand and water can more freely under and around the house. The design team worked closely with the Newbury Conservation Commission and local officials to ensure that the design satisfied local zoning ordinances and provided protection to the natural environment.
Extending 16 feet towards the ocean is an expansive deck made from dense tropical hardwood. The deck’s curving silhouette along the North side was designed to follow and absorb the natural contours of the existing dune. Accentuating the natural curvature, is a sinuous bench made from rich South American Mahogany custom built by the homeowner, a highly skilled woodworker.. A recessed cedar hot tub was incorporated into the South side of the deck to provide a retreat for the family year-round.
