Description: Ithaca Style cable railing.
Our clients in Sea Bright, New Jersey wanted to build a home that can withstand a hurricane. The couple hired an architecture firm to design a modern, cedar clad house that sits 15 feet above sea-level and appears to sit on top of the natural sand dunes. The boardwalk, with concrete retaining walls running underneath the home, now functions as a storm canal.
This couple enjoys spending their time outdoors, so creating indoor-outdoor living spaces was critical to the design process. The living room opens up to a series of decks that descend to the river. Each terraced decks serves a specific function: an upper-level deck offers views of the ocean, one mid-level deck is used for dining, another mid-level deck has an outdoor fire pit, and the low-level deck has a plunge pool. The decks feature our Ithaca Style cable railing powder-coated to complement the home’s colors. The railings are functional but unobtrusive, preserving the beautiful ocean view.
