All rooms on one level and low maintenance were top priorities for this home’s owners. With exception of a home office over the garage, all living space is located steps from the yard. Exterior materials were carefully chosen to minimize maintenance costs. Brick veneer is atypical for a coastal home, however the inclusion of shingle siding and PVC trimmed accents and a light yet traditional brick selection helped to bring it together. An abundance of windows along the waterside and the suspended gable dormer over the family room let the spectacular view of Bogue Sound in.
