Custom Home ∙ Severna Park, Maryland
Working with AJ Building contracting company for this 3500 sf water-front house, our goal was to maximize the value of the existing 1500 sf property by expanding the existing footprint towards the road, the only direction possible due to site constraints and setbacks. Because of the narrow lot, the two-car garage faces the road while a covered walk leads to the entry tower at the heart of the house.
Within, we worked to maximize the open views of the water while creating open flowing spaces around the living areas towards the rear. The tower is not only a visual anchor recalling the history of nearby sea-side buildings in Annapolis, but is also functional and 1) brings natural light into the central foyer and 2) can be used to provide ocean views by providing access to roof decks above. The second floor contains (2) more bedrooms and master suite facing the ocean.
