Our Latest Custom Waterfront Project
In 2013, our clients decided that they wanted to leave their Long Island life for a quiet retirement in the forest. They called us to help with a sustainable design that kept the integrity of the forest and allowed them to spend their retirement in style.
This Forest Escape on the River focused on
sustainability and conservation
From the start, we designed this house with our eye for sustainability and efficiency. Less than 20% of the 2.76 acres was cleared for the home and driveway. From the insulation and the HVAC design to the LED lighting and low flow water fixtures, this house was built with an attention to detail with respect to the environment.
This house is nestled into 2.76 acres of forest land in the Chesapeake Bay Critical Area. From the patio, you have a beautiful forested path that takes you to the water.
The two story den has cathedral ceilings, windows facing the waterfront. A wood burning fireplace offers a homey, cabin feel while anchoring the luxury of the home.
When you enter the home, either from the beautiful cobblestone driveway or from the screened porch overlooking the forested waterfront, you’ll find yourself on the expansive first floor. Main level fully provides for single level living. There is a large island for eating and socializing in the open kitchen and dining area adjacent to the second level den. The guest bathroom and bedroom are built for accessibility if ever needed.
With a theater, a music room, a wet bar, and a room for poker games, they’re certainly set up for fun! Their beautiful bedroom suite has a meditation nook, his and her’s owner’s bathrooms, and personal walk-in closets.
