Architectural design

This signature summer home was built to replace an existing one storey cottage, and to increase the square footage of the design it was increased to a 2 ½ storey. The great room has a 35-foot vaulted ceiling with expansive windows to match, and tongue-and-groove wood throughout. A wood-burning fireplace is a main feature, nestling in a full-height dry-stacked sandstone surround with an oak mantle. The 2 slip boathouse on the mainland was originally designed for boat storage for travel to the island. Incredibly the footbridge was built after to the cottage and boat house were completed.
