Sailor's Delight

The surfboard resting at the side of the porch and the towel drying on the wooden chair tell the story of the morning's ride, just as opening the Dutch door with the porthole in the top reveals the owners' love for spending time on their boat, which is moored not too far away.

The porch is an inviting outdoor living area with its wicker rockers and swing for two. The ceiling, railings, and window frames are painted a pleasing white, which adds simplicity to the design by emphasizing the clean lines.
