Situated at the quiet end of Ferry Beach, this renovated cottage faces marshland on one side and open ocean on the other. “Obviously, we wanted to max out the windows,” says architect Kevin Browne. “We did floor-to-ceiling glass pretty much along the whole ocean side. We also pushed windows into the corners at several locations to keep an unbroken, panoramic view. Douglas fir siding on the front entrance and upstairs patio eaves breaks up the exterior profile by establishing a contrast with the cedar shingling that clads the rest of the home.
