Dubbed "a castle in the sand," this custom vacation residence is situated on a waterfront lot in Ocean City. By skewing the family room, water views are possible from most rooms. The first floor includes a dining room, a study, an exercise room, a kitchen with a 2-story breakfast room, a "peninsula" family room (featuring windows on 3 sides and a see-thru fireplace), and a master suite with a 2-story "atrium tub." The second floor includes 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms and a loft that overlooks the breakfast room below. The square clerestory windows frame views to the bay.
