The entry doors were designed by Peter Marlowe and hand made by a team of artisans including Reen Stanhouse. An antique ship’s quarterdeck lantern from the warship H.M.S. Warspite lights the entry.
The home features an expansive dining room with long wooden table and chairs, all fit for a feast. But the view ahead draws you into the living room. Beyond is a large, heated pool and open waters of Garrison Bight. The Pella doors retreat into pockets, creating an open wall. An expansive kitchen features two of everything. It’s easy to imagine a team of chefs and caterers creating gastronomic delights.At the other end of the kitchen is a ship-to-shore radio that signifies the home of a seafarer. A small office space for the manager of the property is tucked away near the laundry room. The walk-in pantry with a cooler full of wine sits beyond.
Step into the 900-plus-square-foot pavilion and take the stairs up to the apartment above. The view from the apartment balcony out to open water and over the expansive 200-foot-by-110-foot lot makes you pause to take it all in. With a walk-in closet and storage above, a bath with a large soaking tub, galley kitchenette, living area/bedroom with vaulted ceilings and that balcony with open water views, this is certainly a space fit for someone very special indeed.
Around the courtyard is a tool shed with workshop and two bedrooms each with their own bath in the guest cottage. There is also a hidden lily pond with two waterfalls.
Across the stones to the path, a wall of doors opens into the master bedroom suite. Clever design presents the open water view through a large study. No respectable master bedroom suite would be complete without separate his and hers baths with a “meet me in the middle” shower connecting them. She gets the tub and dressing area with garden views and walk-in open clothes closet. But he gets a walk-in closet and dressing area too. ¦
