Tybee Island, GA
This stunning Modernist home, designed by California architect Eric Robinson, is situated on a beautiful 120 foot stretch of deep-water riverfront with a dock, floating dock, screened porch and in-ground pool. Nestled within a wooded lot for privacy, the T shaped design employs a system of steel I beams to raise the structure 8 feet above grade, allowing extraordinary views of the water and the marsh beyond, through walls of glass. Classic interior details are elegantly spare. Natural materials: Brazilian cherry floors and custom Beech cabinetry build on the sense of quiet and privacy. The main level uses an open floor plan, combining the kitchen, dining room, screened porch and living spaces--the perfect place to entertain. The master bedroom suite on the main level features a large walk-in closet, luxurious bathroom, access to the painting studio upstairs, and private porch. The 2nd level has two additional bedrooms, two full bathrooms and a flexible space to serve both as a family room and guest room.An elevator to all floors is accessed on the ground level. Outdoor decks, pool, bathroom, outdoor covered shower, and pool room are also on the ground level. Exterior materials: fiber cement panels, tern-coated stainless steel panels and flashing, clear-coated cedar siding, and painted steel I-beam columns were chosen to withstand the ocean-side environment with minimal maintenance. Just 15 minutes from Historic Savannah, this coastal home is truly a sanctuary in which to experience the changing patterns of nature.
