Captain's Quarters

One look at our 10th Anniversary Idea house in Oriental, North Carolina, and you might think it's a treasured historic home. But behind those clapboard walls, you'll find extraordinary surprises. A team of architects and designers utilized cutting-edge building products and filled each room with innovative design solutions.

Sited to take advantage of Grace Harbor views, the home features an open plan, high ceilings, and large windows. "The simple square columns and lantern crowning the roof reference 19th-century designs found from North Carolina to New England," says project manager Joshua Roland.
