The Bay House

A summer house fronting a scenic bay had been in the owners' family for generations but needed extensive renovations and winterization. The decision was made to move the existing house to a rear lot and renovate as a rental property while building a new house on the water. A Shingle Style house with prominent turret, porch and balcony related to the surrounding summer cottage community. Modern elements include the new kitchen designed with a traditional feel, and a media room nestled under the roof.  Both houses were designed to relate to each other for a "compound" feel.
