The first floor functions as a living room in the summer with French doors that open to the view. At the end of the season, the furniture is moved aside to make room for the pick-up truck. Lanterns suspended from the points of the roof are standard mooring balls fitted with light bulbs inside.
The apparent front door opens onto a covered arcade that takes you past a walled garden to the real front door. The parts of the house are grouped around this contained garden, while also looking out to the cove.
