Waterside Retreats: Modern Home With Glass Panels

Once a single-family ranch house in Cumberland, Maine, this home has since been transformed by Urban Dwellings into a modern, waterfront getaway. Horizontal lines and glass panels throughout create an open, airy interior with a slight coastal touch.

Modern Exterior and Backyard

The backyard features wide expanses of green lawn, patios and a deck that wraps around the upper level.

Bedroom at Waterside Retreat

Expansive windows and a sliding glass door reveal a stunning waterfront view from the bedroom.

Bright and Stylish Living Room

Wide, open windows and glass doors fill the living room with ample natural light. A light blue sectional and driftwood-based coffee table bring in hints of coastal style.

Bright, Open Living Spaces

Enamored with contemporary design, the shell of a single-family ranch was renovated to be the home of their dreams. Living by the water, the design was harmonious with a vision of crisp horizontal lines, a consistent design feature carried through the exterior to the interior. An open floor plan focuses on comfort and luxurious essentials.

Sleek, Open Kitchen

The kitchen features two islands, with one for prepping and the other for dining. Floating shelves display dishware in elegant fashion.

Waterside Dining Room

Overlooking the water, the dining room is a peaceful spot to gather with friends and family.

Deck With Ocean View

In a setting this gorgeous, you want to use the outside spaces just as much as the interior ones. Sliding glass doors on multiple sides of the home let the deck be a second living room.

Waterfront Backyard With Pool and Lawn

The lawn slopes down directly to the ocean. And there's that gorgeous pool. Yes, this is a backyard worth dreaming about.

Backyard and Pool at Night

At night, the backyard is even more magical with lights giving the pool an ethereal glow and the sunset reflecting off the ocean. Enjoy the view poolside or from the balcony.

Pool & Deck by the Waterside

With a view like this, you'll want to spend as much time as possible outdoors. A sleek pool with lounge seating is a perfect place to cool down, while the deck can be used through spring, summer and fall.
