For functionality and flow, this 5,560-square-foot waterfront home was designed to be symmetrical per the homeowners’ request. This required all bedrooms to be built along the perimeter of the home to create symmetry on the exterior elevation. The barrel metal roof and shutters, along with an extra wide 42” custom front door, add character. Navy NuCedar siding provides a durable, weather-resistant option while giving a coastal look.
The top floor boasts the main great room with stone fireplace and low-set windows to maximize waterfront views. The gourmet kitchen, which features a walnut island, wet bar and butler’s pantry, won a Regal Award for Best Kitchen Design by the Builders and Remodelers Association of Delaware. Exceptional elements include the kitchen’s ceiling trim that lines up precisely with trim above the hood to create a waterfall effect and a navy blue backsplash in a herringbone pattern.
The master suite includes a painted white brick fireplace and reclaimed wood wall that leads to the master bath featuring vaulted ceilings. A large deck and screened-in porch floats above the pool area. The pool has a massive deck with fire pit, bar and lounge area. An elevator makes for easy living.
