West Bay Renovation


West Bay Renovation

This turn-of-the-century shingle-style home overlooking the water in Osterville was remodeled by E.J. Jaxtimer Builder, Inc. and completed in 2020. With a grand entry, a covered porch expanding the entire length of the back of the house, and gleaming water views, this is the perfect Cape Cod getaway the homeowners were looking for.

The home was renovated inside and out. Although the home was built a couple decades ago, it had an outdated layout that included a formal central stairway and many compartmentalized rooms with no flow. Patrick Ahearn Architect reworked the first floor to open up the kitchen, dining room, and family room into an open concept floor plan. The relocation and redesign of the staircase into a half-pace style was the final piece of the puzzle when creating the overall desired functionality of the home. The entire home was gutted and refinished with beadboard ceilings and vertical shiplap walls throughout.

The natural colors from outside were brought inside and incorporated into the interior design by Robin Gannon Interiors. A custom white oak Dutch door leading into the main open foyer amplified the unique coastal charm. The living room was enriched with traditional beadboard from floor to ceiling and finished with natural white oak ceiling beams.
