designs are manifest in most major museums of North America and Irish
monuments and national parks. Both homes, nestled in mature wooded
groves, are oriented so that sun rays and moon beams reflecting on the
bay will clothe your bed, where you'll be lulled by songs of wind and

It's obvious that those who first built the ancient cottage and the
main home loved the sea. South facing windows and sunrooms allow
you to spend days and nights in nature surrounded by sunlit clouds, the
