This towering Colonial in Adams Shore overlooking the Rock Island Cove Salt Marsh is awash in natural light and custom touches. Custom features include a hide-away television in the living room fireplace mantel, an elaborately decorated arch, and hallway window systems that combine glass blocks and a transom window to allow light and fresh air inside. The house has tall ceilings and hardwood floors of dark mahogany and light oak. The living room has built-in cabinets. The open floor plan kitchen features a granite breakfast counter that can seat up to eight. Appliances are stainless steel, including a double stove. Off the kitchen is a large deck looking out to the marsh. At the other end of the kitchen is a cozy bedroom, now used as an office.

On the second floor, the master bedroom has a gas fireplace, walk-in closet, its own bath and deck. The two other bedrooms are large, well-lit, and have good closet space. The family bath has a whirlpool tub, a separate shower with full body shower heads, and double vanity. The third floor has a large L-shaped bedroom with multiple storage spaces. The basement is an in-law with a bedroom, full kitchen, and a living room that looks out to marsh. There is a one-car garage.
