In the kitchen, there’s an American Oak solid timber kitchen island, that when paired with white countertops and cabinetry, creates a modern yet relaxed design.

At the rear of the house, the cantilevered second floor provides shelter for a wood patio. The backyard acts as an extension of the indoor living spaces, which smoothly transition into the outdoor thanks to large expanses of glass, and with easy access to the beach there’s no need for a pool.
