Cumberland Foreside, Maine
This beautiful ocean view home was a complete remodel of the structure. The most dramatic change in layout was the removal of the home's massive center chimney, relocated to allow for a more open interior concept and amazing sweeping views of Maine's coast. Custom millwork on ceilings and walls, rolling mahogany doors, and unique details such as the over sized day bed make this home feel both comforting and elegant.
Once the carriage house of a prominent down east Inn, this unique residence has many extraordinary characteristics. Outwardly, the architectural style of the original carriage house was preserved with classic shingle style siding, intricate stone work, and its striking observation tower with a spiral staircase winding its way sixty feet into the air. Interior layout and finishes were completely renovated. The first floor great room is open through the second floor to the roof ridge thirty feet up. The main entrance of the house opens into a three seasons porch with slate floors an and almost entire glass structure overlooking the landscape. The second floor houses the master suite, two guest suites, and a common area.
HISTORIC CAPE REMODEL
Falmouth Foreside, Maine
A historic 1700's home in Southern Maine, this project was a unique challenge in maintaining the balance between preserving the home's historic architectural significance while still introducing modern amenities and functionality. The exterior facade was carefully preserved, while the interior was completely updated. The home now has a more open concept, exposed timber in the ceiling, custom cabinetry, and touches on contemporary with accents such as the sliding metal and glass doors. In addition to the renovation of a historical space, a mudroom and garage were built as well to expand the size and functionality of the home.
Only seventy five feet from the ocean’s edge, this home stands four stories tall and occupies upwards of 6,700 square feet of living space. Originally built in the early 1900s, redesigned again in the 1980s, this home had a general lack of detail both on interior and exterior elevations. Confined by the home’s existing foot print, this renovation reevaluated its interior layout and was reworked to let each room take advantage of the breathtaking harbor views. The handiwork of our custom cabinet shop and interior finish craftsmen is evident in practically every room: kitchen cabinets, fireplace mantel, china cabinets, bookshelves, hutch, and coffered ceilings.
