Marsh-Front Cottage With an Exotic Twist
From the outside, this marsh-front home on Bald Head Island, N.C., has all the hallmarks of a charming coastal cottage: a shingled exterior, a multi-gabled roofline and plenty of outdoor living areas for soaking up the surroundings. The inside, on the other hand, took us by surprise, and we’re loving the mix of modern design and warm, Asian-inspired accents.

Starting in the foyer, a barrel-vaulted ceiling in dark wood adds drama to the otherwise clean and bright space. The wood ceiling treatment continues to the modern kitchen, outfitted with professional-grade appliances and a cozy breakfast banquet perfect for casual meals.
Throughout the rest of the home, a blend of exotic hardwoods, coral stone and slate and onyx tiles make every space feel like a rich, Zen-like retreat. The house has a reverse floor plan, with the living areas on the second floor to maximize views of Bald Head Creek and the surrounding marsh. Conversely, the home’s bedrooms connect to inviting outdoor living spaces, including a gorgeous glass-tiled hot tub that cascades into an infinity pool.
