This Cape Cod style cottage was renovated by William Ross Design in collaboration with Howell Custom Building Group, located in the historic coastal town of Kittery, Maine. The owner’s purchased this antique farmhouse with the goal of remodeling it to provide a peaceful summer getaway for their family.

They wished to maintain a few of the charming antique features, while also adding space, modern amenities, and views of the marshland and ocean beyond. The dwelling was expanded with a two-story addition that boasts complimentary rooflines and the same simple, low-slung shed dormers as the original home.

ACCOLADES: Winner of the Gold Award for Best Remodel/Renovation from the Builders and Remodelers Association of Greater Boston.

The result is an eclectic, comfortable cottage that mixes the old with the new and features a variety of porches and balconies tucked under rooflines, as well as indoor spaces, to enjoy the exquisite views.

In the kitchen and dining room, the interior bearing walls were replaced with large, covered beams to create an expansive, light-filled space with views of the ocean. An enormous soapstone island offers space for a buffet lobster lunch. Doors open to a covered porch that wraps around the front of the house connecting the addition with the old house.

An angled cabinet wraps around the original antique staircase behind it and holds a small TV. The kitchen is flanked by a separate pantry and laundry room.

In the dining area, a trio of single windows was replaced with a bank of continuously mulled windows so guests sitting at the long farmer’s table have tranquil views of the sun setting over the marsh and ocean.
