Sitting on a beautifully tranquil cove off the Rhode River, this property’s long narrow drive opens up onto a wide expanse that offers striking views both across the creek and out onto the river. Based largely on the Shingle style, but with elements of traditional country homes as well, the house relates well to both its rural waterfront setting and the family’s lifestyle.
Truly a family-oriented home, the kitchen and great room are both spacious enough to host large gatherings and comfortably sized for daily living. With an L-shaped plan, the home provides open views from all of the main spaces on both floors. It also provides a comfortable setting for the pool and pool terrace, integrating indoor and outdoor spaces. The design includes a gracious outdoor loggia that provides shade for sunny afternoons, a screened porch with an outdoor fireplace, and a second floor family room with a pool table and a large outdoor deck. A covered walkway connects the house to a three-car garage with a guest suite above.
The home’s exterior is carefully detailed yet understated, blending stone, cedar shakes, and traditional trim, brackets and columns. The craftsmanship evident on the exterior is continued inside, with extensive use of wood trim and paneling throughout. It is a home that is both proud and unpretentious at the same time.
