a glimpse of the graceful staircase
(facing page) in the main hall
reveals the sculpture of a horse’s
head that tops the newel post.
Broad strokes of tonal furniture and
accessories balanced by the strong
verticality of the stone-faced
fireplace create contrast in the great
room (above), where pops of blue
reference the oceanside setting.
Reclaimed antique barn beams and
pine flooring add a sense of history
to the newly built house. Granite
slabs set into the sloping lawn act as
front steps (left) to the rambling
Shingle-style house, which is
purposely massed to look smaller
than it actually is.
