This is the side that faces the view out to the lobstering harbor and beyond. While Shores perserved the site as much as possible, it was necessary to dig a new septic system. The siting of the resulting berm atop the tank helps improve the view, as the area in between the home and the coastline has a lot of busy commercial lobstering activity and the berm blocks this less picturesque part of the view.
A big part of enjoying this property is being outdoors. Porches and windows were sited to take full advantage of the ocean breeze. A balcony stacked atop a screened-in porch has spectacular views out to the harbor.
The decks are constructed from ipe wood. The ceiling over the upstairs porch is tongue-and-groove stained cedar, which adds interest and character.
