Remarkable home on the waterfront in Port Owen

Some homes are simply so splendid in design that it deserves its own blog post. This spiral-staircase & open-beam 'tower roof' home completed in July of 2017 is located on the waterways of Port Owen, and it definitely deserves a special mention.

The house was a unique and complicated build, which is right up DBC's alley.

The result is a magnificent structure with remarkable flow, a grand spiral staircase at the entrance, sunken lounge, lovely entertainment areas, and intriguing spaces under 'exposed trussed tower roofs'.
