Home on the Bay
Set on a peninsula overlooking the Choptank River and the Chesapeake Bay, this house was designed to take advantage of the many broadwater views. Porches, decks and balconies provide additional outdoor spaces accessible from every room.
The interior rooms are all oriented toward the water. The first floor is warmed by a radiant heating system covered with ceramic tiles. The ceiling and trim are all natural finish red cedar.
The house is raised four feet above the ground to meet flood plain requirements. Cedar shingles, roofing, ceilings decking and trim are combined with clad windows and doors to create an attractive, low maintenance exterior. Photos: M. Wargo
