This coastal home had classic cottage charm with small spaces and dated systems. New generational owners wished for improvements on all fronts and ample space to accommodate both family and friends.

Achieving a better awareness of arrival, a new entry porch and custom door assembly proves inviting.

An increased sense of space was achieved by keeping sight lines open but rooms divided with custom built-ins to showcase beach treasures or to store media equipment out of sight.

The architectural detailing is simple and graceful, and does not distract the eye from the expansive ocean views outside every window.

Up above, a private breakfast porch is accessible only from the second floor master bedroom suite. These spaces expand the home’s living areas and provide a valued connectivity for owners who love the outdoors.

Throughout the home, the original whitewashed wood style remains, but now with warm wood accents to highlight the custom millwork and unique detailing. The one exception being the master bedroom, which is finished from floor to ceiling with a glowing fir beadboard, a perfect complement to the vast blue of the ocean just beyond.

Staying true to the style of an old Maine cottage, the charm is in the finishing details.
