Japanese Inspired Shingle Style House

Ipswich, MA

A unique property situated on the marshes called for a patiently designed and built home. The mature landscape was carefully maintained during demolition and building so that the new home was nestled in amongst the towering oaks and shagbark hickories. Red cedar trim, natural red cedar shingles and Hampton Sage Marvin windows blend seamlessly as details appear to grow out of stones. Connection to the outdoors is created with a screened porch that boasts a complete grilling station, stone patio with an outdoor fireplace, and stone walkways. A marsh front “boat house” marks the access to the river provided by a 1000’ boardwalk and dock.
