Other outdoor components Roseland suggested were
a fireplace and covered dining area.
“When I do a full house construction I always float
the idea of an outdoor fireplace,” he says. “We get
crisp nights during season, and you can light up a fireplace
outside which you probably wouldn’t inside.”
And then there are the garages; two single-car
garages, one on each side of the house. It’s an unusual
configuration but solves one of the major challenges.
“We’re pretty close to the road and needed the
setback, so we couldn’t figure out how to get a two-car
garage,” she explains.
She and Roseland came up with the idea from another
Central Beach home she’d seen. Placing one garage
on each end of the home brought the exact results
they needed. Lundy’s east side garage enters into the
laundry room, while Fields’ west side garage connects
to a hallway that leads into the kitchen.

Painted Bunting in the 1930s.
The outdoor, enclosed shower, which connects directly to the master bathroom,
became an essential design element for Lundy Fields, who can’t quite seem to stay
>> out of the surf just two blocks down the street.
