There’s nothing quite like vaulted ceilings to open a space up!

So much light comes in through the windows.

A perfect spot for mealtime.

    Beautiful place! But is that first pic really the same house? The interior looks so big, and the last exterior pic looks different enough, surely that first pic is from some other house?

      Not the same house. First pic is of a house on piers. Last one is not. Also, private “dock,” not “deck.” Still, beautiful place.

      There’s two buildings, the interior shown is the main house and the first photo is of the second that the AirBNB describes as a tree house by the dock…

    Am I the only one, who have an aversion for winding staircases? I find them difficult to climb or descent.
    Though I do like the house. Looks really good. I would probably not have black tiles on the floor in the bathroom. They tend to look really dirty very quickly, when water is spilled on them. But that is what I would change – an ordinary staircase out into the room, with shelves underneath, and lighter tiles in the bathroom.

      Winding/Spiral staircase is harder to use but it saves a lot of space. Since, regular stairs would cut off the kitchen from the rest of the space and go all the way towards the entrance. So depends if you’re okay with that trade off… Though, you could consider attic stairs that lower when you need to use it but raises out of the way the rest of the time.

      No you are not. I too have adverse reactions to them. Scared s**tless about crashing down them. I am unsteady on my feet these days. Damn this getting old lark.
