Located in South Kingstown, Rhode Island, this three-bedroom, two-and-a-half contemporary stands out thanks to its boxy shape. The home sits on a rectangular lot, so the architect decided to maximize the ocean and salt pond views by replicating the building’s shape in the design.
The design also uses what’s called a reverse-level floorplan, with the main gathering spaces located on the top floor. The kitchen and living room feature floor-to-ceiling windows, painted beadboard ceilings with oak beams, and sliding glass doors that access an upper deck that provides panoramic ocean views. The kitchen has custom oak cabinets, floating shelves, quartz countertops, and a walk-in pantry, and there’s also a back porch with a retractable television.
The bedrooms take center stage on the lower levels, where a master suite enjoys beach views, access to a covered front porch, and a bathroom with a glass enclosed shower and river stone flooring. A final perk is the home’s low-maintenance design built to withstand the elements; the living areas are elevated above the floodplain and the house is supported by concrete beams and helical screw piles that extend deep into the ground.
