New Take on Tradition

A gabled portico with six tapered columns and a fanciful interpretation of a fanlight—a half-round cut-out in the gable with wrought-iron grillwork—gives presence to the entry of this newly built seaside cottage but keeps the mood informal.

To add another level of detail, architect Thad Siemasko inlaid a band of purpleheart wood in the white-painted trim surrounding the door and sidelights. The fieldstone on the stair risers and the shingles and wood trim on the gable echo elements used elsewhere on the house.
