Guyon Point – Middletown, New Jersey
Guyon Point’s auspicious location served as an opportunity to create a home whose design plays off of, and takes advantage of a beautiful riverside scene. It wraps around the hillside, which it is seemingly anchored to, with its strong horizontal lines and grounding brick foundation. The house is a unique fusion of Federal Revival and European Arts and Crafts architectural styles. Its plan is attentively laid out to deliver unobstructed views throughout the house to the water. The Navesink River is visible through the first story when standing at the front entrance, and the master suite is placed with a direct view of Sea Bright and the Atlantic Ocean. The first floor includes a two and a half story entertaining space that converts to an outdoor room by way of interior folding and pocketing doors. The folding doors open the space onto the river, seen beyond the infinity edge pool. One is transported to an intimate resort like feel by spending time inside and on the surrounding terraces and porches of the residence.
