Distinctive Modern Home Between Sea and Pond

The two-story coastal home features a sizeable rear patio with a fire table, swimming pool and spa that overlooks a freshwater pond. The exterior design emphasized integration with the home's surroundings and reinforcing local ecology. Invasive species were replaced with low-maintenance native plantings. Limestone terraces the color of beach sand weave past shadblow, American holly, and black cherry to reach the home's entrance above-grade. Highbush blueberry, inkberry, and groundsel shrubs were interspersed with Pennsylvania sedge and little bluestem grass groundcovers, with grace notes added by specimen bayberries.
