Views of the Atlantic influenced every aspect of the design of this 2,500-square-foot home perched on top of a large ledge outcropping overlooking a small bay in Biddeford.There is a gracious entryway facing the quaint neighborhood of Granite Point. Dramatic yet intimate decks flow out from the kitchen and living room to take in the sweeping views. The house sits squarely and comfortably on the coastal ledge, with low roofs surrounding the main gable. Coastal regulations played a heavy role in shaping and siting the building, but were used as advantages to add interest to the design. The layout of the house was designed to be kept informal, emphasizing an openness between the living room, kitchen, and decks.
