Hello again readers,
This month I am featuring nautical themed architecture on my blog, so I designed something that would reflect the sea and its relationship to design. The most common building associated with the sea is the lighthouse, the guide post for ships at sea. I incorporated a decommissioned light into the house design and attached it to the main house. Traditionally, the lighthouse keeper’s home was separate from the light, but I chose to connect the two and turn the light into a stairwell/2-story library. Access to the lamp is retained and the once active light now becomes a great lookout spot for the homeowner. The attached home has 3 bedrooms and 3 full bath with 2 lavs. A separate home office space above the 2-car garage is provided for work or as as study. Other features of the home include a putting green, a gazebo, a pool with hot tub and its own pool facilities, as well as a separate boathouse for housing water craft. The house was designed in the Shingle style and is typical of houses found on the Eastern seaboard at the turn of the 20th century.
