This coastal cottage is a cross between a bungalow and a pagoda.

The front deck of the Eyrie, a post-modern cottage in Sorrento, feels more like the bow of a great ship than the porch of a great home. The view from the deck is a long, soulful vista out across Frenchman Bay and a vertiginous drop two hundred feet straight down to the rocks and sea below. Eagles soar at eye level. Treetops don’t quite reach the cabled deck.
