CLIENT: | ARCHITECT:
This 1920’s residence, located in Nantucket’s Historic District, overcame many obstacles, underwent a massive renovation and expansion, all while staying in line with the area's notable building code. E.J. Jaxtimer Builder, Inc.’s building experts worked alongside Elizabeth Dunne Marcoulier Architecture & Interiors and island architect, Matthew MacEachern of Emeritus, to bring the client’s vision to life. The exterior design captured the traditional oceanside charm, while the interior revealed a contemporary California aesthetic with expansive views of the harbor.
Square footage was added on either side of the original main house and was enhanced with Pella Windows & Doors, white cedar siding, and red cedar roofing. A 400-square-foot guest house was added and the garage was relocated under the guest house to maximize the outdoor living space. A dining pavilion (a special request from the homeowner) was also designed into the building's plans.
Fun fact: The main house and guest house are connected by a tunnel below the landscape and pool deck.
The interior of the home features an open concept floor plan with floating staircases fabricated from wood and glass. The kitchen reveals a large smoked-oak island, a Neolith backsplash and countertops, a stainless-steel hood, and high-end appliances. On the second floor, the master bathroom was completed with a pair of custom vanities and a freestanding glass enclosed shower.
The main focus of this project was to incorporate as much outdoor living space as possible. With abundant covered porches, a custom dining pavilion, and an infinity edge pool, the client’s vision was fulfilled.
