MILLS TERRACE, NAHANT, MA, TRANSITIONAL OCEAN FRONT HOME RENOVATION

This beautiful oceanfront home in Nahant was a renovation of an existing century old summer home. The existing home was stripped to the frame and completely rebuilt. Roof dormers were added to gain usable space under the roof.
The style of the house is clearly traditional but with many contemporary details and features: large, over-sized windows make the house feel more open and allow for dramatic ocean views throughout the home. Deep, narrow roof overhangs look modern and help protect the home from severe weather.
The open interior of the home is clearly modern with Scandinavian touches that recall the owners heritage. Rooms are divided into areas for a variety of uses. The stair had to be relocated and is now a major feature of the home.
