This West Coast-style contemporary home sits on Argo Point, which forms the south side of York Harbor. It was completed in 2021, and according to designers Whitten Architects, it was a site-specific custom design for a “young active family” where the views of the ocean “open up and become more dramatic as you progress” through the home. Living quarters are separated into wings for privacy, and glass walls and sliding doors blur the lines between indoors and out. Listed by Abigail Douris, RE/MAX Realty One. See the full listing.
