All Points of View lives up to its name with stunning 270 degree views of the Narragansett Bay in Rhode Island.
Our client relocated there from the DC area with the goal of creating a dream home to retire to, where they have hosted guests 300 of 365 days per year. It is the equivalent of a private bed and breakfast for friends and family. Boasting 7 en suite bedrooms, all with stunning views, 3 bars wired with Guinness, a sunrise tower, a sun set porch, outdoor kitchen, over a thousand square feet of patio space for enjoying the ever changing views.
The original house was a very plain '70's modern. While the client does like some modern features, they wished to build a more nautical New England style.
The 2 bedrooms and play area above the 3-car carriage house connect to the kitchen through a back stair and offer a more cottage style.
The octagon tower offers a timber frame overlook on the top level, connecting to a bar and lounge area. The mid-level is the master bedroom with built-in platform bed and dressers surrounding the room and the lower level is a walk out bedroom suite.
The Great Room is intended to feel like a ship, with 2-story views over the water and water themed cedar timber frame, with overlooks on all sides. The main chimney has a larger lower fireplace and an upper fireplace in the lounge.
