Rocksyde traditional-exterior


This year-round house sits on a rocky shoulder of a New England cove.

The house is oriented East to West, allowing a procession of rooms to gradually culminate in the spectacular ocean view to the East. The dramatic siting of the house against the water’s edge recalls a ship’s prow jutting into the ocean.

The house responds to its natural environment as well as the Shingle Style tradition popular to the region.
