2010 Coastal Living Ultimate Beach House: Exterior
Photographer Lisa Romerein


The low profile: Due to a development height restriction of 28 feet, the house is capped with a cedar-shake gambrel roof that creates a modest facade and cozier rooms.

That soft gray siding: A peaceful, bleached-driftwood hue belies the structural integrity of the siding and trim, guaranteed to stand up to the coastal environment for decades.

Understated windows: The divided panes on the upper sashes were based on an early 20th century design. The single-pane lower sashes guarantee uninterrupted views.

Charming awnings: The wide stripes and scalloped edges of the outdoor fabric dress up the cool exterior but still stay true to its understated style.
