Clad in green oak boarding and local stone, the Mortehoe House brings a touch of New England to the English Channel. The house is located on the Devon Coast. Its simple gabled form is inspired by the beach houses lining the U.S. Atlantic coastline. A central stair divides the interior into two spaces. A laundry and mudroom occupy one half while the main living area sits on the other. The pitch of the roof creates a spacious, double-height room. Large panels of glass fill the area with natural light and views of the garden. The upper level is split between the master suite and four bedrooms. Perched above the ground floor, this story looks down to the sea below.
