Ocean View House
Charlestown, Rhode Island
New build of a 3800SF, four-bedroom, four-bathroom contemporary beach house in Charlestown, Rhode Island. To take advantage of its natural setting and long distance ocean views, an upward lift was added and the home was strategically placed on the highest point of the two-acre plot of land. The architecture also features a concrete exterior bottom floor, which creates the illusion that the upper floors are floating above the land.
The interior design has a vast, open floor plan, large glass windows, white oak flooring, kitchen cabinets, white walls, and minimalist furnishings in neutral tones. Crafted to be a warm retreat, the home radiates a modern, calming, and airy allure; a parallel to the mood of the beach beyond.
Beyond the kitchen, floating Ascend Stairs split the home into two separate, acoustically sound wings, one designed for the children and the other for the adults.
A modern approach to the architecture and design of the beach house leaves the homeowners with a sleek and easy-to-maintain residence while bringing in an optimal view of the surroundings and inviting a connection with nature.
