Distinctive Homes Built with an Exacting Eye
“This is traditional architecture, responding to a nautical environment.” – Bob Gilbane
San Juan Passage homes' steep pitched roofs peak like sails against the sea. Gracious
columns, deep covered porches, craftsman details and natural shingles present a blend of Nantucket charm and Northwest sensibility. The floor plans are efficient but gracious, with no wasted space, like that of a ship. The result is a picturesque composition recalling the ease and romanticism of the classic seaside getaway.
Details in every San Juan Passage home are meticulously orchestrated. Wainscoting, crown molding, and ceramic tiles based on historic design add traditional grace to interiors.
Oversized wood-wrapped windows and French doors invite sea breezes into the bright, open interiors. Flowing floor plans embrace great rooms perfect for entertaining, and architectural angles create nooks and crannies. Lead architect Douglas Kallfelz, of Donald Powers Architects, cites the project's classic building forms, good proportion, simple details and durable materials as "the hallmarks of truly timeless architecture."
