Best Restoration $750-1M

Enduring a 100-year assault from Vineyard Sound’s salt, wind and moisture resulted in irreparable levels of rot and decay to this waterfront home. Although the homeowner expected a significant renovation, they were not prepared to tear the house down entirely and start over from scratch. By choosing to renovate the home using the existing footprint, we were able to retain its historic character and avoid a costly new construction. To improve the home’s layout and flow, we converted the first floor from many small rooms to a spacious open floor plan by installing two steel beams to replace load-bearing walls. Although the home is roughly 50 yards from the waterfront, there was no water view from the house. To remedy this, we added a small deck from the second-floor master bedroom. The homeowner explains, “Having my morning coffee from that deck is often the best part of my day.” We installed a bright new kitchen featuring Longfellow custom frameless cabinetry, quartzite countertops with a flowing pattern of pewter, apricot and chestnut tones, and a farmhouse sink. At the far end of the home is a traditional stone fireplace, using stone matching the original outdoor hardscape.

PRISM SILVER 2019: Best Living-room/Dining Area
Builders and Remodelers Association of Greater Boston
Belvedere Plains, Falmouth

As with most things designed well, the design of this home doesn’t call attention to itself. It instead elicits emotion, elevates your mood, and provides effortless functionality at every turn. No matter how many people … rain or shine … warm or cold … party animal or intellectual, this home fits like a glove. An unusual front yard patio is carefully positioned for enjoying the morning sun, the terrace off of the open-concept kitchen/dining/living room has overhead heating units to take the chill off Cape Cod evenings, and a rooftop deck with views of Falmouth Harbor and Vineyard Sound are prime examples of how this home effortlessly delivers peak experiences.

Waterside Carriage House Renovation
Falmouth, MA

Renovation of a historic 1860’s carriage house into a spectacular summer retreat for a family who spends nine months of the year living overseas. What made this project spectacular is the care and detail that went into the repurposing of the home’s original architectural design elements. Barn doors, wrought iron horse stall dividers, and even a copper water spigot and drain used by carriage house staff for the family’s horses. Longfellow designers chose beautiful natural materials and finishes throughout this restoration, including a dark walnut island countertop with a marine oil finish, copper range hood, and pendant lamps. A guest suite addition connects to the main house through a bookcase lined corridor reminiscent of a ship’s gangway.

Mid Century Modern Home Cotuit

New Single Family Home – Between $700k-$1 million
Cotuit, MA

This mid-century modern home has sloped roofs and blue/gray clapboard siding. Natural cedar siding in the center draws your attention to the orange-red door, a common feature of the postmodern style that signifies the importance of the entry. The angular details and asymmetrical profile of the job were a welcome challenge for builder Mark Bogosian. “It was refreshing to have a client who wasn’t afraid to think outside of the box,” Mark says. “We consulted with our engineers multiple times throughout the project, which required a large steel beam that you typically only used for commercial buildings.” Inside, the effect is dramatic. An open floor plan seamlessly blends the kitchen, dining, and living room spaces. A guest suite and the master suite are at opposite ends of the home for maximum privacy. The kitchen is sleek and modern with white, flat-panel Longfellow Custom Cabinetry and Caesarstone quartz counter and island tops.
