For this second home on the sand, the owners wanted a cheerful retreat, even on foggy summer days. The original old beach house from the 70's was extensively remodeled to create a unique home with a boundless use of color, wood, and stone. The 20-foot-long barreled skylight in the entry leads to a spectacular great room ceiling made of 20 quarter-sawn, figured, curved cherry panels with recessed lighting. Bedrooms have curved, hand-selected cedar-paneled ceilings. The bathrooms feature floating cabinets with sandblasted granite counters and a cedar tub surround. Acid etched granite is used for kitchen counters. Automated exterior shutters close the home from the ocean when not in use.
