Beach Home Envy: A Modern Design on the Eastern Shore

This Grasonville home was updated to include three water-facing balconies.

There’s nothing like a rainy spring morning to make you crave a sun-filled beach getaway. This week, we’re taking you to Grasonville on the Eastern Shore, where this contemporary renovation sits on the shore of the Chesapeake. Originally a 3,800 square foot home dating to 1985, the current owners worked with GTM Architects to expand and update their place to include a more functional kitchen, a larger family room, modern bedrooms, and newly built rec and exercise rooms. The result? A modern, open layout, with a skylit cathedral ceiling and an updated pool terrace that features a mudroom, recreation room, pool bath, and wet bar. The first-floor master and five second-floor bedrooms were brought up to date, and three new balconies were added—all with fantastic views of the water, of course.
