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.

Thanks for your question. The bottom of the skirt of the porch is a piece of Azek trim to resist water and mold. The top of the porch is mahogany decking.

Thanks for your questions! You access the windows peak through a roof hatch and movable ladder from the interior. The water drains from the other side through a scupper.

Thanks for your question. Unfortunately we don't have the exact name of the color used on the eave.
