This colonial home features a classic gray shingle exterior, as well as several outdoor terraces for taking in the Southport Harbor view. Located in Fairfield, Conn., the home includes a deep water dock with a boathouse that sit right at the water's edge.
Around the holidays Kennebunkport, Maine's Boathouse Hotel and Restaurant serves up a Glad Tidings Cocktail combining hot cocoa, Meletti Cioccolato chocolate liqueur and rum topped with whipped cream, white chocolate pretzels and chocolate drizzle.
The narrow stripes of a hand woven stair runner echo the blue and white striped wallpaper, lending to a boathouse look in this hallway. Vibrant red doors and coordinating lampshade complete the all-American color palette.
Plush love seats are arranged around a wooden coffee table on an upper levels of the terraced lakehouse. The seating area overlooks the boathouse and waters of Horseshoe Bay through windows that maximize the use of daylight.
This project consists of a main house and boathouse, which are connected by a series of outdoor terraces like the one pictured here. A bridge gives the owners access to the boat slips and fishing docks as well.
Built on a sloping terrain, the entire compound includes boathouse, fire pit conversation area, putting green, screened porch and fishing dock to accommodate many guests at once. The design features include maximized use of daylighting and strong connection to exterior spaces and view via their direct adjacency to interior spaces.
The Horseshoe Bay residence was stripped down to the foundation and only a few walls remained when Jay Corder and his team began their remodel. With the residence sitting on lake front property, site slope was a major factor in the overall design and site plan of the house. The boathouse dock area and walkway follow the same terraced layout as the waterfront residence further from the water. Overhanging trees provide pools of shade alongside the sunbathing areas and fishing dock.
