I embarked on a full blown rehab of the existing interior and exterior spaces of this 1890's ocean-front home in June of 2014. In the fall of 2015 the project was coming to fruition. It was a joy to visit this job site, not only to witness the excitement of the homeowner as the project progressed, but also to breathe the fresh sea air. Winthrop is full of historic homes with wonderful period charm. This project called for a more modern open space to enhance circulation for the interior space; by flipping the primary living areas to the home’s ocean side, the owner is now able to interact with the waterfront views on a daily basis. I also custom designed the mill work for many of the interior spaces, in keeping with the homes original grandeur. The exterior updates feature energy efficient windows, spray-foam insulation and period trim details. In each room you'll encounter refined, tactile finishes that help create a backdrop for the homeowner’s eclectic artwork. Once a dark interior of inward-facing rooms, the home is now full of light, rich architectural textures and commanding ocean views in all directions. Time to pull up a chair, kick back and take it all in - a great escape from the hustle of the city with gorgeous spots to watch boats drift by and planes pass overhead.
