The 10 acre site contrasts between a gently rolling pasture grass field and an abruptly terminating 100 ft. high tree lined bluff that drops to the water’s edge below. The contrast between these two conditions led to the architectural concept. Occasional high westerly winds from the water blow against the bluff concentrating wind forces at the top. The house mediates this force by creating a wind break. Stretching laterally along the bluff are the living area, the entry porch, the tower and the garage. This north south oriented wing is highly glazed to take advantage of the long range views over the bluff to the islands beyond.
