Are you ready to tour a truly amazing luxury waterfront home on Ferry Point by Purple Cherry Architects? My mouth dropped open at first sight of the entryway and I think it stayed that the entire time I browsed through all the photos taken by Durston Saylor and David Burroughs. And then I had to look at them a few more times to take in all the artful details.
I mean – look at this ceiling and trim work. It’s sheer perfection. The arched wooden door with sidelights matches the curve of the foyer’s ceiling. This home wasn’t made by a builder, it was constructed by an artist. The matching chandeliers provide just a touch of bling without being too glam. And the compass on the floor is somewhat whimsical, as if helping to point visitors in the direction they might want to go with doorways on either side.
The Maryland home office is more like a library/family room. Tall cabinetry intermingles with cabinets for ample storage. Love the color and nubby texture of the rug, and the Tiffany lamp adds a bit of retro elegance. You’ll find touches of romance throughout this luxury waterfront home.
The coastal color scheme of the living room echoes the hues of the water seen through the wall of French doors. Can you imagine lounging in this room, gazing out the window at all the beauty beyond? Traditional furnishings keep the room from being too fussy, so you can appreciate and enjoy the architectural details like the paneled walls and coffered ceiling.
The dining room is nestled between the living room and kitchen; you’re able to see from one room into the next. Your eye flows easily through the spaces with the same color palette throughout.
Note the use of geometric shapes throughout the home – in window panes and trim work on the walls and ceiling. Everything is softened with upholstered furniture and a few plants tucked in strategic locations.
The pantry is unique in that, although the corners of the walls are square, the built-in shelving makes use of a curved front.
How about an expansive bar for happy hour after getting home from work? It’s just off the dining room making it perfect for entertaining.
Even the laundry room is gorgeous with custom blue cabinetry, white tile, and deep set window with a waterfront view.
A bay window creates a cozy space for reading and taking in the views through mullioned windows.
The master bedroom enjoys prime real estate with the most perfect of views! Can you imagine waking up to the sight of the water every morning? I wouldn’t even close the drapes at night.
A kids bunk room with rope style pendant lights is the perfect spot for a sleepover. Note the port hole windows from one bed to the next.
The red, white, and blue theme continues into another children’s room. The raggedy Ann and Andy dolls caught my eye as I’ve always had a soft spot for them. It’s sad that more kids don’t have these nostalgic dolls and know their history.
Rope makes another appearance in the bathroom of this luxury waterfront home. Mirrors are hung with a pulley, alluding to the ships out on the water.
Here’s another entrance – a little less grand than the front entry, but still filled with beautiful, architectural details.
