I often find myself looking at homes and dreaming about how I would change them if they were mine, and it wasn’t any different when I saw this classic shingle home for sale.
Brilliantly designed by Anderson Campanella Architects, this shingle style home takes full advantage of its waterfront venue and the site’s environmental challenges. The design’s conception considered strict codes that led to a compound-style layout, which includes a freestanding garage and pool house that have been ordered to elegantly utilize the property. A variety of spaces draw interest to the river views, including the kitchen bay dining area. The dynamic layout also gives each room a unique feel, yet is united in a common historical, nautical theme.
The attention to detail and great open floor plan add to the beauty of this Hamptons style shore colonial home. From the front foyer with floating staircase and full wall recessed mouldings to the family room with French doors to an ipe deck with custom railings, this house embodies elegant living at its best.
Take a good look and let me know if you would spend the $4,195,000 asking price for this property.
This beautiful home is located in Little Silver, New Jersey.
The property features a shingle detached garage with a home office on the upper level.

The landscaping creates privacy and beauty to the pool area.

I don’t think I would ever want to leave this place.
This river is just a few minutes away from the bay and it’s perfect for boating.
You can almost hear the breeze running through the grassy shore…
Would you pay $4.2 mil for this home? Is it wrong for me to think this is a very fair price? I am getting use to see the insane prices of houses in Vancouver where you can’t find homes under one million anymore. In fact, old homes are selling for extravagant prices, breaking records and leaving only few rich and the rest struggling to live anywhere close to town. In another words, house pricing in the US seems to be more fairly controlled than in Canada.
Anyone feeling the same way around here?
I hope you had a good time seeing this home today.
Believe it or not we’re in the middle of a snowstorm and the kids didn’t have school today. I think I will try to bake with them and maybe watch a movie. Some freshly baked bread and hot cocoa will sure warm us up… 🙂
Enjoy your day, my friends and we’ll talk some more tomorrow.
