Retreat from the big city

To escape Manhattan’s hustle and bustle, the client’s exhaustive search for a coastal country retreat was satisfied upon discovering a creek front, picturesque peninsula lot with mature trees, a charming cottage and resident herons, on Maryland's eastern shore. A U-shaped layout was conceived to mimic shoreline limits, intended to capture panoramic water views from every room in this narrow-width house design, bathing the interior spaces in natural light. Generously proportioned rooms maintain a charming intimacy rarely found in such a large residence.
