Property descriptionOSPREY HOUSE & STUDIO ~ New construction designed and built by Peter Kurt Woerner FAIA, renowned architect/builder. Sited high on a granite promontory with commanding views over a saltmarsh, Jarvis Creek, the Thimble Islands and all the way across the Sound to Long Island, 26 miles away. The marsh is a wildlife sanctuary; a microcosm of life itself. The constant ebbing and flowing of tide offers ever-changing views and sunsets. The entrance is through two towers into a fieldstone walled courtyard. The house is 4800 sf of light infused space. The eat-in kitchen and living room open onto a cantilevered deck with magnificent views. On the second floor there is an expansive primary bedroom and bath with marble shower and a separate soaking tub. Off the primary bedroom is a small study with a winding staircase bringing you up to a Zen-like space with a gently curved ceiling, eighty feet above the marsh. Here are unparalleled views. There is also an intriguing curved ceiling room which could be used as a gym, theatre, or playroom. The main house also has a 1st floor bedroom & full bath and a dedicated space for a future elevator. The dramatic 746 sf studio/guesthouse is located in a private setting and has a two story great room with fireplace, kitchenette and sliding glass doors leading to a deck, study, full bath and a spacious loft. It is a tranquil space surrounded by natural beauty. This property is unusual and unique – a superior design - both functional and elegant.
