The house, named Long Reach Retreat, has a bridge that connects the garage (on the left) to a hallway in the upper level of the home that leads to a poetry studio and a sleeping porch (seen in the photo above).

Inside, materials like copper, tile, and wood have been used throughout the interior, like in the living room.

In the kitchen, a live edge bar sits next to the countertops, while beside the kitchen are doors that lead to the deck with water views.

The master suite is also on the same level as the kitchen and living room. In the master bedroom, the bath is positioned to take advantage of the views. A walk-in shower with a glass surround helps to keep the bathroom feeling open and bright.

Wood stairs connect the lower level of the home with upper level, that houses more bedrooms and the poetry studio / office.
