Lewes, DE

This home is a pavilion style, abstracted from the five-part Colonial Tidewater house type found in Historic Lewes, Delaware. The pavilions create multiple outdoor rooms for the owner’s gardens. One of the hyphens holds the dinning room, the other a screened porch. The joining breezeways create a convection current through the property that helps keep the home cool in the summer. The cedar shingles were left to darken naturally, contrasting with the glossy white trim and wood detailing. The roof is capped with a crows nest that contains a small sitting room with a view of the ocean. Granite quarried in Virginia and reclaimed knotty wide plank Chestnut floors grace the home.
