Utilizing the talents of Anderson Campanella Architects, the couple worked with the architectural team for three years to create the perfect home. Two years of construction later, the residence was completed in 2011, complete with the “seashore feeling” that the couple had envisioned.

The property, located at the point of the Navesink River, offers views of the entire river. With that in mind, it was only natural to build so that every room could take advantage. “We built it around the view,” noted the owner. “It has overlooks of the Rumson Bridge, Red Bank, and the Navesink. I grew up on the river, and this is the nicest lot here. I always wanted it.”

The entire home is custom designed and no detail was overlooked. The couple used several decorators and their own expertise to finish the 10,000-square-foot project. The exterior is cedar shake and looks at home on the river. The roof, with copper accents, is finished in brown. The brilliant white home has navy blue shutters, evoking a Ralph Lauren aesthetic. “It’s just gorgeous,” she said. The Loewen windows are traditional and the home includes a turret at its top.
