This unique, Craftsman home has shingle siding highlighted with fishscales accents and traditional double hung windows with the heavy timber porch and deck framing topped with a clean-lined glass railing brings a modern nautical touch to the exterior of this unique home. A casual, open living space with exposed beams, gas fireplace, and sundeck make for an elegant yet cozy gathering space. The sitting room and guest suite on the main level easily transform itself into a mother-in-law or private guest suite complete with separate access. Covered front porches, screened rear porch or the open sundeck on both levels ensure outdoor activities endure regardless of the prevailing weather. The second level is totally dedicated to fulfilling the needs of the vaulted Master Suite part of which is a multi-purpose reading, hobby or exercise room and a massive sundeck. Access to a floating Library overlooking the living room is via a connecting bridge. Glass railings, exposed truss timber framing, and floor beams make this a totally special and reflective space.
