The Owner of the Oyster Pond Cottage made a great commitment to respecting the environmental fragility of her waterfront property while replacing the existing structure.
Working with this small, sensitive site situated within a flood plain, we preserved the property while maximizing the magnificent views. The new cottage utilizes the existing footprint; we added a second storey to the structure.
This detailed, charming cottage has exposed framing and rich interior and exterior details. The interior exudes an old cottage feel and casual elegance, with fir walls and floors and colored plaster walls. Cut-out details animate wooden elements throughout the house.
A tree house for two children sits in the small side yard. A basket runs on a line from the house porch to the tree house to allow treats to be sent over!
