The Wind Drift 3 is a stunning Cape Cod style house plan designed to showcase a beachfront property. This sky-scraping plan is built on pillars to protect from the ocean waves and has three stories of living space, each wrapped in decks and balconies.
The front door on the first floor enters into a secondary living space. This floor has three bedrooms, a full bath, and a utility room; all the rooms needed to clean off all the sand before proceeding to the main living. Also on the first floor is a family room. Sliding glass doors open on to a screened porch, allowing for an ocean breeze to flow through the space without any pesky visitors.
The second floor is the main living area. An impressive space, the majority of this floor is a great room with two-story, vaulted ceilings with a woodstove as a centerpiece. Sliding glass doors surround the woodstove and can be opened to make the indoor space feel partially outdoors. The dining room, just off to the side, also has a sliding door and a bay of windows to continue showing off the outdoors. The kitchen is at the back of the space and is just as impressive. With plenty of counters and cabinet space, the kitchen is functional and well-appointed. At the center sits a kitchen island with eating bar. The right-wing of the first floor is dedicated to the master bedroom. The master has private access onto the deck and plenty of space to include a sitting area. The master bath is located at the back of the walk-in closet and features a spa tub.
The third floor is a loft, open to the great room below, and can take advantage of the warmth from the woodstove. With a full bath and walk-in closet, this space could be used as a secondary master bedroom. If that's not needed, it could be a game room, office space, or whatever suits your family best.
Not accessed through the loft space, but accessible from the second-floor deck, is a unique look-out style deck. With the house on pillars, this deck sits four stories above the ground and would be a fun place to watch the beach-goers fly kites or look for sea life.
