Open Air

Humble compared to most resort homes, our Shipshape Cottage is only 2,688 square feet. But multiple covered porches, a deck, and a downstairs cabana make it feel a little larger.

Glass wraps three sides of the great room that centers the house. Two bedrooms and baths extend like wings on either side. A tower-like staircase leads to a loft on the top floor.
