The Scully house is a cottage house in a community of homes arranged a long a marshfront golf course and garden landscape ponds. Each site is carefully restricted to coordinate shared views for the community. Each home must fit within a small footprint and every effort is made to sculpt the home to get the most of views, sunlight and breezes for each unique site.
The subtle grade along the golf course required the house to rise from the street back to the golf course to allow for views to the marsh beyond. The design became a pair of buildings with the street house built at grade for car and entry, and the view house raised to see over the golf course and marsh. The two buildings are joined by a stair tower that brings light into the center and separates the two structures. The separate structures also provide privacy with the master bedroom in the view house and the guest rooms in the street house.
