A phase II addition acts as an indoor and outdoor living space, complete with mini putting green. The homeowners’ sought a space they could use year round and an addition was added to the previously renovated home. The COV wouldn’t allow an indoor living space so in order to comply with regulations, venting, insulation and other thermal elements were built in such a way as to allow the space to breathe. Structural work includes all new foundation and footings to allow tie-in to the existing house. Making this same area warm and inviting in the colder months was another challenge that was overcome. The covered part of this space feels like part of the interior of the home. Adding a wall plus entrance door and grand fireplace gives one a sense of being indoors. The exterior facade takes its cue from the main house with warm taupe siding, ledgestone and black trim. The ceiling is an extension of the exterior soffits including dual skylights for brightness. A frameless multi-glass sliding door opens up the corners of the covered area for a seamless transition to the outdoors. The lounge seating and dining table, complete with rod-iron pendant, is a perfect place for family dinners. Even in the colder months, this space can be used by closing the sliding glass doors and lighting a fire in the fireplace to keep the patio warm and cozy.
The home was built on a steep hill overlooking the water resulting in different levels of interest. The yard was designed with gathering in mind and pockets of entertainment were sprinkled throughout the property. A hot tub, firepit, pergola and lavish gardens make up the points of interest. Most of the trees and shrubs were purposefully kept to give the homeowners privacy. The feature of the backyard is the mini putting green meant to keep the grandkids entertained. Connection to the outdoors is part of a healthy attitude and this gem provides comfort at all levels.
