“There is a lovely transparency to this traditional home, from the passage through the carriage house to the see-through aspect of the front door toward the rear picture window. It is also well detailed throughout.” – Jury member
Timeless in its appeal, this new construction, turn-of-the-century-style home offers modern living amenities with an open floor plan, a rooftop walkway, and several custom touches that take advantage of the spectacular coastal views. The design was intended to appear as though the house had been added onto over time. Marvin assisted in achieving the final look by providing several custom windows and doors, including a unique eyebrow-shaped window on the rooftop above the entryway. These unique windows not only add to the home’s 1920s appearance, they also provide necessary protection to withstand the harsh coastal weather conditions.
