York Ocean Cottage – Interiors

This ocean cottage got a facelift and gained some weight, but the most important part of this project was maximizing the ocean view.

The architectural work incorporated a 18’ x 32’ addition for the Kitchen and Dining Room and a new staircase and second floor to accommodate a Master Suite was constructed by Greenier Builders out of Kittery Point, Maine.

In the kitchen, the sink is located in the island, facing the ocean– allowing for view maximization. The kitchen was an interesting design challenge with 10 Subzero |Wolf appliances from Clarke in Boston to incorporate. A long exterior wall of the functional cooktop, refrigerator, pantry, ovens and storage space was created. The island incorporates the sink, dishwasher, microwave drawer and freezer drawers as well as inviting seating for 8. Bostonian Woodworking completed all custom cabinetry and furniture.

The Dining area is just off the kitchen, complete with a shuffleboard table converted for both serving and beer pong. The dining area features a large table to accommodate many guests, with a gorgeous chandelier to compliment the space.

The Bar is placed in the original house footprint and just behind the Living Room with dark cherry wood with mirror tile backsplash and a corner cabinet that lower the bottles down with the push of a button. And the Living Room is inside the original house now opened to the Kitchen |Dining Room.

The screened porch maximizes the view in the front of the house, so we installed new screen | storm doors. The screens can be switched out for the glass doors in the winter with new heated floors to extend the Maine unpredictable seasons.

Hale’s Landscaping from York, Maine stepped in to install the landscaping and hardscape. The landscaping pulls the entire project together with a large deck off the screen porch connecting front to back yards. We expanded the front entry therefore, the walkway needed to be rebuilt as well as the entire front façade and front patio. The plantings along the front walkway were updated and blended with the old planting.
