Gable Setting

Several small gable additions and a tower combine to create a more dynamic roofline and open up the house to ocean views.

The architect designed the overall mass and rooflines to reflect the scale of the existing neighborhood.

The master deck extends over the screened porch.

A gable roof over the master deck counterbalances the strong gable of the existing house. A long pergola more clearly marks the driveway and entry points.

Exterior updates include new cedar siding and cedar shingle roofing, and trim details, which tie all the components together.

The circular tower is one of several small additions.

A pergola bridges the gap between the main house and guest house and guides visitors through the renovated courtyard.

The chimney was rebuilt with fieldstone to match the earth tone palette of the façade.

A 5-foot deep addition defines the new entry, which has a custom mahogany door.

The original house did not have a defined entry.

Wood grilles on all the window types create a more cohesive look. The grills leave the lower portion of the window open to prevent obscuring the views.

The original rear facade lacked refinement.

The original facade had several types of windows and some were oversized.

The original brick courtyard lacks direction and feels narrow.

The tower adds much needed height to original the roof line--shown here.
