A Tour of the High Dunes House' Exterior Stairs, Decks, and Boardwalks
Time at the sea is special because of what's outside the home. The siting of the High Dunes House is remarkable, as it sits high atop the secondary dunes. The location, and the height of the lot, provides panoramic views for miles and miles. To honor the setting, we built porches and decks everywhere.
Porches and Decks
Porches and Decks were included in our floor-by-floor tour of the High Dunes House.
In addition to all the good things about exterior decks, stairs, porches and boardwalks by the sea, the High Dunes House' network of these things has proved to offer another benefit, one that we didn't plan for: the house can accommodate very large groups of people without feeling crowded. This became evident to us on occasions when the entire B&B was booked for a wedding and reception. It is not unusual about having weddings at our B&B, but it is unusual that a reception party would prove to be three or four times the number of guests we had planned for. For various reasons, we limit catered wedding receptions to groups of about 30 guests. On a few occasions we found ourselves amid groups that ranged in size from 85 to 125 people. The porches, decks, and exterior stairs absorbed the large number of people in a way that was truly remarkable. Even with those overly-large parties, it never felt crowded.
So, just as the interior design of the High Dunes House permits a dozen people to stay without feeling crowded, with everyone having a sense of comfort, space, and privacy, so too the exterior design seems able to simply absorb a very large number of people without effort. The High Dunes House does both these things to an extent that cannot be found in most homes of any kind.
