The 4,000 sf main house is perched on the rocky coast and is opened up to incredible views of the water with a 24' sliding pocket door that disappears into the wall. The great room is the center of the house with high ceilings, a 20' kitchen island, and a dining room table for a crowd

The wrap-around deck leads to a two-story screen porch features a polished stainless steel spiral staircase up to a sleeping porch on the second floor, and even the guest bedroom opens to a roof deck. The interior design, finishes, and fixture by Bradley Bowden create a unique house perfectly tailored to the owner's family.

The Get Away enjoys a well-insulated envelope and a geothermal HVAC system. Although large windows face west, sun shades and special glazing help reduce glare and heat gain. A subtle palette of exterior colors settles the house into the landscape as it raises out of the ledge.
