Situated on the beautiful Summerside Harbour, the prominent views to the water face due Northwest. Although these views are primary to the layout and design, the client was also very interested in acquiring as much solar gain and natural lighting as possible. A large triple-glazed clear-story south-facing window assembly was planned into large living room space which allows ample solar gain and natural light to penetrate deep into the main level open-planned living spaces. This window assembly is then mirrored on the north water-facing side that provides a near clear view to the water through the heart of the home. Upon entry, you are presented with 135 degree full view of the waterfront from the living, kitchen, dining and four-season space. The house has been wrapped in traditional materials such as fiberglass roof shingles, wood siding, corner boards, shadow boards, wood beams and columns. A large full walk-out basement presents the house to the water while the entry south-facing façade reads as a modest story and a half structure.
