The combination of horizontal siding with stone and stucco accents gives the Richelieu the contemporary blocked texture and color look; it is a unique update to the traditional beach house look. The first level is mostly carport and open space to protect the main living area from potential rising waters. There is a storage area separate from the main house to store some outdoor gear and toys. The entrance to the house also has a large, open area at the bottom of the stairs. This area could be more storage, a workspace, a playroom, or just a place to clean off all the sand.
At the top of the stairs is the main living level. At the front of the house are two good sized bedrooms. One is slightly larger so it could function as a master bedroom or, possibly, a bunk room. The back of the house is an open, casual living space. The kitchen is fully appointed with full-sized appliances and has plenty of space to prep meals. A sliding glass door and long windows allow the occupants to enjoy the sight and sounds of the waterfront views. Outside the sliding glass door is a large deck with access to ground level for maximum outdoor enjoyment.
To the other side of the stairs is additional storage, a laundry area, and a full-sized bath. The bath adds a bit of luxury with a separate spa tub for relaxing at the end of a long day of play
