This home looks so much like a ship that it takes but a dollop of imagination to relocate this contemporary from its spot on a dead-end street to the nearby Sakonnet River. The roof line rises to a sharp peak and just below that, the house looks like the bow of a ship riding the waves.
A blacktop driveway leads to two indoor garage spaces tucked underneath the home. On the right, wide stairs with Pennsylvania thin granite walls and bluestone treads curves upward to the main entry.
The interior of this contemporary emphasizes natural light, and that’s on full display in the great room, an open layout that also encompasses the kitchen and the living and dining areas. The great room section has a cathedral ceiling, a pair of skylights, and casement windows. The sunroom, located off the dining and living areas, offers larger muntin-less windows with water views. The space is 8-by-27 feet, running the entire front of the house.
Back in the main living areas, one finds a crowning achievement of elegance: a Crown Major chandelier by Nemo.
The living area is positioned underneath a set of three windows and provides access via sliders to the sunroom. This area includes a brick chimney, painted white, with a gas fireplace insert. A slab of teak forms the mantel, and the hearth is granite.
The dining area is set up between the two sliders to the sunroom. A peninsula with a curved granite counter separates it from the kitchen. The kitchen itself is galley style, with a double sink underneath a pair of casement windows. The appliances are stainless steel, and the cabinets are white. A door off the kitchen connects to a deck.
The flooring on this and the upper level is oak.
Completing this floor is an office with three windows; a full bathroom with a pedestal sink, a shower/tub combination, and tile flooring; and a 143-square-foot bedroom with sliding doors for the closet and windows on two walls.
A custom stairwell in the center of the house leads to the upper level and the primary suite, which takes up the entire floor. The primary bedroom is 22-by-13 feet long, so it’s spacious. There’s a slider to a private deck and a walk-in closet with custom shelving.
The full bath has a floating single vanity, an oval soaking tub with wall-mounted fixtures, and radiant heat flooring. The standalone shower comes with a rain shower head and a frameless glass door.
The lower level offers a 494-square-foot workshop and storage areas. The home has central air on the second floor and sits on a 0.53-acre lot.
