Redhouse Cove Waterfront
Project Details
Location: Gibson Island, Maryland
Year: 2005

The owner of this beautiful property facing Gibson Island’s anchorage wanted a home that provided a comfortable sense of place for his family that reflected the unique character of this private community. While the home presents an unimposing façade that overlooks the Island’s golf course, the rear of the home takes advantage of the natural contours of the site to open three levels of living space to beautiful views of the tranquil basin.

This home’s expansive water views to the northeast are visible from all of its key living spaces, which progress in an axial sequence along an L-shaped plan, with a screened porch connecting gracefully to several rooms. The family room provides a unique game area that is tucked comfortably into a bay window across from a stone fireplace, an intimate setting for enjoying family and nature all year long. A deep deck, wrapping around the waterfront side of the house, extends the living space outdoors. The sloping site allows a three-car garage to tuck under the house.

Though it is generously proportioned, with its eaves extending to the first floor reducing its mass and scale, the house blends comfortably into its island neighborhood.
