With stunning architectural design and outstanding craftsmanship, this is not your typical Seaside house! Almost Italianate in its proportions, this two-story home was crafted as if by Shaker artisans. With post-and-beam construction of North Carolina pine, the architect Eric Watson, describes this beauty as “true to its origins and to its architecture, where rafters are really rafters and brackets are brackets.” Published in Architectural Digest in 1997, AD calls it “solid and fun.” This historic method of construction sees the entire home pegged rather than nailed. With a shallow pitched roof, ceiling heights are taller than most in Seaside and rooms are generously sized. A light whitewash gives the walls a refined ruggedness. The first floor offers four bedrooms and three baths, laundry room, elevator and plenty of storage. The second floor provides the kitchen, living and dining rooms all capped by exceptionally tall ceilings and bordered by a spacious covered porch. A media room can be easily converted to a fifth bedroom while an adjoining half-bath could become a full bath. The magnificent tower, grand in its own right, lifts you high for views and would make the perfect office or serve as additional sleeping accommodations.
Stand out from the crowd with the only home of its kind in Seaside!
