Gray Farmhouse Exterior and Gravel Driveway

To keep this 4200-square foot oceanfront property from feeling too massive and overwhelming, the architects separated one huge structure into three more approachable ones. Long, low rooflines and a soft, winding driveway also enhanced the simple, relaxed feel the homeowners were wishing for.

Front Entry and Porch at Dusk

The front entry makes a beautiful first impression with a slate stone walkway, gracious steps and open sightlines that offer up water views the minute you walk in the front door.

Blue Coastal Foyer With Open Door

Palest blue walls act as a neutral in the foyer, while adding a hint of color and depth to the space. At the foot of the stairs, a built-in bench is a handy landing pad for putting on shoes or dropping off bags.

White Chef Kitchen With Stone Oven

The kitchen has all the equipment any gourmand could require: pizza oven, two dishwashers, tons of countertops. Bonus points: ocean views out to the horizon.

White Chef Kitchen With Stone Pizza Oven

A rustic stone pizza oven is a gourmet addition to the kitchen and, paired with those views, dinner at home is suddenly the best idea in the world.

White Master Bathroom With Sheepskin Rug

A large sheepskin rug has all the appeal of a fluffy cloud under bare feet. It's a unique, delicious choice for a master bathroom.

Pool and Deck With House

A weathered deck surrounds the pool, with the poolhouse on one side and the house on the other. The pool's back edge is open to sweeping vistas of the nearby ocean.

Pool and Water View

Tasteful landscaping gives the property out back of the home pops of color and a casual, friendly feel. It also camouflages the difference in altitude between the pool and the lower yard.

Poolhouse Facade

The poolhouse keeps the party going with a pass-through window for drinks and snacks. A ship's-ready porthole window is a nod to the home's oceanfront setting.

Poolhouse Interior With Ocean Views

Inside the poolhouse, windows let in the home's incredible ocean views. One window is made in a creative, garage-door style that rolls up and out of the way, allowing drinks and food to be passed through to the outside.

Back Exterior and Yard at Dusk

The deck and pool are immediately connected to the back of the house. Further out, a set of stairs lead down to this gently rolling lawn.
