"The foyer introduces the relaxed, coastal feel of the home," adds Susan's associate, Debbie Faulkner, of the towering entry with its wide staircase. Here, antique heart-pine floors showcase a honey-hue shine. Stair treads and banisters finished in a rich, long-lasting stain repeat the look of the floors' reclaimed wood. Accents set the coastal tone. Distinctive artwork showcases native flora, and a bowing shorebird rests on the landing. A small table with turned legs, a shapely lamp, and a striped wool rug offer color and style.
Off this vestibule, a study exudes masculinity with stained
paneling and built-in bookcases. Twin leather armchairs and an
ottoman gather in front of a moss-color marble fireplace. A
leather-topped oval desk and statuesque lamp create a handsome
space for paying bills and checking stock prices online. Above, the
room opens to a spacious second-floor landing accessed by the
stairwell and complete with seating and storage.
