Shared Spaces



Inside, the great room is a beautiful spot to relax and unwind.

Built-in beadboard cabinets compliment beamed ceilings, and a handsome fireplace warms up the occasional gloomy June morning. Three sets of French doors open to the east to three sets of swings, perfect for lackadaisical afternoons or lazy nights. 

 

Two sets of French doors in the adjacent family room open to the west and allow the salty sea air to roam freely in the home.  With space for movies, books, or the original “words with friends,” this family room is a natural extension of the great room.


A gorgeous dining room extends to the south terrace and makes every meal an al fresco experience. Timeless and breezy, effortless and chic, the dining room sets the stage for gathering, sharing, and entertaining with ease. Beamed ceilings crown the room, and a stately fireplace adds a warm glow to every occasion.

 

A fabulous kitchen makes cooking a treat, whether arranging charcuterie, a gourmet meal or packing for a seaside picnic. Professional appliances provide culinary muscle, and abundant counter space offers wonderful places to work. Soft dove gray cabinetry and lofty beamed ceilings are a feast for the eyes, and an eat-in breakfast nook is ideal for small gatherings.
