Cedar Bluff beach-style-exterior

Cedar Bluff

Perched atop a bluff overlooking the Atlantic Ocean, this new residence adds a modern twist to the classic Shingle Style. The house is anchored to the land by stone retaining walls made entirely of granite taken from the site during construction. Clad almost entirely in cedar shingles, the house will weather to a classic grey.

Steven Corley Randel, Architect added this to Roots of Style: Shingle Style Is Back — Here's How to Spot It
Variations on Shingle StyleMedieval form. The medieval Queen Anne form is apparent in this newly constructed shingle-style house. Notice how the shingles curve into certain window groups and how the top-floor windows have a brow above them. Also authentic to originals are double-hung windows with divided lights on the top half only. The porch posts are wrapped in shingle, which was one of several options of the style. Some had simple classical columns, while others had massive stone- or shingle-clad piers at their porches.Does your house have a medieval heritage?
