The Project:

Inspired by the New England seaside, this eclectic shingle-style home modestly boasts approximately 11,000 square feet. Lowering the roof eave and housing the second floor and attic within the cedar shingle-clad roof assembly helps reduce the visual scale. The low, slung roofline creates a dramatic presentation to the flanking pair of roof gables, gently curved eyebrow dormer and bowed attic windows recessed within each gable. 

A slightly contemporary twist of vibrant color contrasts pastel blue toned shingles against white trim and achieves a punctuation of depth in the form of black window frames and vibrant indigo entry door. 

The home’s floor plan was designed in the form of a bent “L” shape with the garage wing angled from the main body of the house. This form allows the front, with its angled garage appendage, to act as a dividing wall and enclosure to the private rear-yard garden and pool beyond.
