This project was for the renovation of a humble cottage with an ideal coast side location in a quaint beach community which was transformed into an exquisite three level retreat. a coastal haven A couple about to celebrate the union of their two families wanted to transform their simple 1950s beach cottage into an idyllic second home they could comfortably share for a lifetime. Because they were planning a wedding and a remodel at the same time, it was critical that the project run smoothly. The deadline for the home to be finished and livable was set for one day before their wedding. After their upcoming wedding, the homeowners planned to live in the home with their four children and large groups of visiting friends and family during the summer and other vacation times. They wanted their new environment to be a comfortable and luxurious retreat for themselves and their children, with surroundings conducive to frequent entertaining and overnight guests. As frequent travelers and connoisseurs of art, the couple wanted to express their eclectic tastes and interests throughout the home, with a focus on compelling architectural elements, unusual materials and interesting found objects. They wanted their home to evoke a classic Nantucket style suitable to its environment, with its own memorable character and detail. The couple hired Titus Built of Redding, CT, to create a design and establish goals, budget and deadlines. They were thrilled to move into their new environment, as planned, right after tying the knot! Upon opening the front door, one is immediately engaged by the stunning view in a design that captures the essence of relaxed and luxurious waterfront living. At the top of the stairs on the third level, a remarkable pair of antique doors graces the entry to the large family room. Imported from a church in France for the project, the nine foot tall doors feature distressed oak on one side and antique mirrors on the other. The home abounds with refined design details. Every piece of cabinetry and wainscoting was custom built, lending the home a solid essence of enduring beauty.
