I am seriously gushing over this Coastal Retreat in Jamestown, Rhode Island. As you arrive, the house sits far down a winding driveway, sea grass that lines the driveway, is swaying in the beautiful ocean breeze. This house is designed by DiMauro Architects, has every lovely detail a coastal retreat requires to be a restful sanctuary. My favorite details in a beach house are windows with pretty details, a lovely nook with the sun shining on me, where I can spend an hour reading, an open kitchen with so much natural light shining in and the who doesn't want an amazing stone fireplace to cook pizza? ... A beautiful and a definite luxurious splurge, but my favorite place in this beach house is in the backyard, the terrace sits high above the water, I would sit out there with a refreshing cocktail, a seabreeze would be perfect, I would day dream while I watched the the white sailboats dance in wind. This backyard is simply stunning, every detail from the grey slate terrace, the outdoor bar, beautiful pool, rambling stone walls showcasing the vivid colorful and glorious wild flowers, which was designed by landscape designer, Atlantic Lawn and Garden. The amazing photographs were captured by Warren Jagger.
