Resurrecting and restoring one of the greatest Turn of the Century estates along the Gold Coast of Cohasset definitely had its challenges. Restoration began at the ground level, replacing the crumbling foundations and rotted framing and went right up through the house to the top of the new chimneys. Great care was taken in saving the integrity of the existing structures and replicating some of the exceptional details that give the homes the charm and appeal that so many homeowners look for in a house these days. No piece of molding or trim was left unturned and nothing was left to chance. Great pains were taken to replicate the unique trim details on the exterior of the main house. Reproducing the “Sunrise” rake boards, all the different decorative gable ends, and the custom cut wavy sidewall shingles meant to mimic the ocean waves are a true testament to the craftsmanship of days gone by.

Extensive site work and logistics went into this project.  Planning and scheduling were a top priority due to the complexity of the project and the timeframe spent on site. All new underground utilities were interwoven with the new drainage and all the ledge that makes Cohasset so beautiful.

All new landscaping was required for the grounds. New native stonewalls and terraces were built with stone excavated during the construction site work process. Mature privacy hedge was shipped in from Long Island, NY to define the grounds and add an element of privacy. A breathtaking negative edge pool spilling into the Atlantic Ocean tops off the list of challenges on this one of a kind Estate.
