Located just sixteen miles outside of Boston, this newly built Lighthouse style home elegantly pays deference to the Manor Home farther up the hill, while still being casual enough to compliment the property's other summer cottage next door. The two lower structures, the Lighthouse and the summer cottage, share an intimate garden that is tucked away behind the stone retaining wall.
This modern exterior combines white stucco and dark wood siding to create clean lines and elegance. Sleek furniture, neutral tones and minimal decor help bring the modern aesthetic to this beach side home.
A wood-inlay dining table is surrounded by comfy transitional armchairs meant to entice guests to linger at the table. A Williams-Sonoma Devon chandelier hangs overhead, acting as a secondary focal point to the wall mural depicting an ancient harbor.
Ornate woodwork frames the doorway to a traditional veranda in the living room of this 1870-built Gothic Revival mansion. The home, on Australia's Darling Point peninsula, features sweeping harbor views and a fully restored interior. In this traditional living room, comfortable seating surrounds the fireplace, creating a cozy conversation nook.
Part of the home's master suite includes this sitting area, perfect for movie nights with its gas fireplace and large, plush sectional. The ceiling is pine ship lap, a harmonious combination with the oak floors.
A house on Newport Beach's Balboa Island must have access to plenty of views! Here, a porch offers cozy harbor scenes from plush velvet sofas. Pull the glass doors closed when temperatures drop and the view is just as good.
An ancient harbor wall mural sets the tone in this dining room. A simple small rectangular table holds center court, with a Williams-Sonoma Devon chandelier hanging above. A high-gloss Chinese dresser serves as the buffet, while four comfortable upholstered chairs invite guests to relax.
A desire to embrace the sweeping water views informed the home's design, emphasizing openness and prominence toward the cove. On the inside of the towers, the ceiling height extends to over ten foot high and a window wall blurs the boundary between the inside and outside.
Taking full advantage of a waterside location is this compact and stylish design from CplusC Architectural Workshop that incorporates a pool with Australian hardwood decking with lovely views and easy open water access.
