This down-to-the-studs beach house renovation focuses on the breathtaking view of Haystack Rock. The client, a couple in their 50's with a large family and a love for entertaining had been searching for the perfect beach front home for nearly two decades. This 1960's fixer-upper had an unmatched view, and so our project began.
To accentuate the view as much as possible, we vaulted the ceiling and added over-sized windows and a sliding door. The dated and clunky corner fireplace was replaced with a contemporary linear fireplace surrounded by seashell limestone. The 70's style shag carpeting was replaced by white oak flooring, and monochromatic wood finishes draw the eye straight to the ocean as you enter the main living space. We added a roomy deck with glass railing, again focusing on the view. With the addition of over 1,500 square feet, we were able to add a proper front entry, garage and master suite to the front of the house. The client has a large family and spends a lot of time entertaining - opening up the floor plan and allowing for plenty of seating ensured that everyone could be in one space at once. The lower level boasts a comfortable TV room and three guest bedrooms, as well as a kitchenette and access to the front yard and fire pit. Melanie selected light and beach friendly finishes and furnishings, ultimately creating a calming and relaxing beach-front retreat.
