A Private Peninsula
Located on a craggy peninsula and surrounded by pristine wilderness encompassing more than 40 acres
Rising up from the rugged granite shoreline of the Atlantic, this modern dream home is an icon of design excellence by Alexander Gorlin & Associates, a New York Architectural firm.
A Series of Interlocking Pavilions
The pavilions feature window walls of Starphire glass that capture endless views of the majestic Atlantic Ocean
An elemental landscape like this could easily be overwhelmed by a monolithic edifice or one that competed with it, Gorlin says. So I designed the house as a series of discreetly linked pavilions on two levels, each with a separate function and angled toward a different focal point. You still have a panoramic view, but it has a narrative, like the panels of an altar triptych.

The house design also provides pivotal moments of balance; the curved roofs recall various nautical motifs as well as the undulating surface of the rocky cliff, says the Architect.
Built to Withstand the Forces of Nature
To withstand the rough weather, Gorlin says, steel, reinforced concrete, and Starphire glass were essential materials. The builder, Andrew Watts, scribed the concrete to the rock with such finesse that it's almost like marquetry.
A Dramatic Juxtaposition
A glass spine connects the six pavilions. The spaces between rooms were left unobstructed to create an open plan and a fluid spatial experience.
An Enticing Paradox
The property is brilliantly positioned to invoke a sense of being at the helm of an ocean liner while actually being secure within a refined and elegant living space.
Dramatic Views from Every Room
The living room, den, dining room, the kitchen and master bedroom are ensconced in their own space as defined by the interconnected pavillions, each offering stunning views of the Ocean.
Quality Materials & Exquisite Finishing
The polished imported limestone floors are heated and run throughout the 6000 square feet of living space creating a unified flow.
A Building that Responds to its Environment
Landscaped terraces provide a platform for lounging areas with long outdoor patios. Wild rocks and crashing waves are as sublime a site as any in the world, and the house is a perfect balance between architecture and nature.
This majestic one-of-a-kind 40 acre property is offered at $6,450,000 CAD
