A high-pitched roof, plentiful windows and a sun-drenched porch come together to create the Carmel Bay house plan. A tidewater-inspired cottage, the Carmel Bay is inviting and stunning. Inside, a welcoming foyer exposes a charming arrangement of casual space and formal rooms. French doors lead to a quiet study or parlor, which features a wall of built-in shelves and panoramic views from the arched window. Across the foyer of the Carmel Bay, a succession of arched openings and pass-throughs accentuate the effortless transition between the skillfully designed kitchen, great room and dining area. Built-ins frame the fireplace in the great room of the Carmel Bay, providing an anchor for the wall of glass that creates a connection with the outdoors. The open floor plan affords sweeping views of the outdoors. This area looks out through a multitude of windows and doors that open to the expansive covered porch. Away from the public areas, a guest bedroom features French doors to the back porch and offers a quiet place to relax. Upstairs a balcony hall showcases the living area below and connects the master retreat and second guest bedroom.
In the master suite, French doors open onto the exterior deck, inviting the outdoors inside. The master retreat offers up sublime relaxation to the owners while another guest suite provides additional accommodations. The ground floor offers a two car garage and a bonus room along with additional covered storage space. A lower level porch is the perfect walkout for a pool or outdoor kitchen. The floor plan of the Carmel Bay has 2534 square feet of living area and is offered with an island basement.
