The shingled façade says “seaside” and the gambrel roof says “farm”, making the house compatible with its coastal and formerly agricultural site.
The old sheds, used now as a gate lodge and a garage, sit behind the house and are visible from the front.
Decorative posts frame the dining room, which flows into the kitchen, making for an open plan that’s clearly defined.
Soaring ceiling, exposed trusses, and stone fireplace give the master bedroom a sense of presence and solidity.
A glass tile backsplash and integral sinks made of concrete add a contemporary touch that makes sense in this shingle-style house.
Architect Jacob Albert paid close attention to the “vernacular of old sheds” when he built the house.
