Majestic in Mystic

Majestic in Mystic

This winter I was contacted by a local builder to assist in a renovation project of a previously ill conceived bank owned foreclosure. The builder had a great eye for symmetry and a great eye for value as well so he purchased it from the bank.

The location of this 4500 square foot colonial is a sleeping little New England fishing village with very much character that the builder wanted to incorporate into this home. A previously clapboard house with mismatched windows, turned into a cedar shingle style home with white trim and symmetry go with. A master bedroom suite was added over a garage, a porch was added to the rear of the house and stones walls were constructed surrounding the property as is customary in this region.

All of the finishes and fixtures were upgraded throughout the house as well as many of the mechanical systems. Neutral tones and earthy surfaces with plenty of texture were used to create a relaxing livable space. The result was a welcoming beach home with plenty of room for family and friends, entertaining and fish tales! 

While the overall cost of the renovation was $400,000.00. The budget for the interior portion was $50,000.00 and was completed in just two months.
