moxie cove cottage

  • round pond, ME

situated on a sloping site along the rocky maine coast, this new 2,500 sf house is clad in traditional white cedar shingles with an oversized roof, gables and shed dormers.  its interior is organized around a central entrance hall, with living, dining and kitchen spaces in a cathedral-ceilinged volume to the right, and master suite, laundry and powder room to the left.  an oversized stairway at the end of the entrance hall leads to a second bedroom and bath above the master, and to a generous open loft overlooking the living-area.

throughout the house, windows are over-scaled and positioned to frame views to the water or woodlands and to allow for a flood of light during the day and star gazing at night.

outdoor living spaces include a raised deck off of the main living space and a screened porch off of the living room.
