The challenge: Replace a seasonal pond-side family cottage with a new 4 heirloom home. The unique property has a rear yard that is higher in elevation than the front.
The solution: The center entry and stair provides access to the living area and its wide view of the salt pond. The front yard and the garages are a half level below the rear and in the flood zone. By stepping this 4,000 sf 4 bedroom shingle style residence up the water, all living areas are safely above the flood zone.
