Manomet Summer Retreat

This home underwent a complete transformation in 2008 when Thorson was brought in to enlarge and renovate this client’s summer home.  The client had deep rooted family ties in the neighborhood so wanted to take the home in this ideal location and make it work better for their family of 5 (well 6 if you include Floyd the dog). The home underwent a new series of renovations to the windows, doors, kitchens, bathrooms and all interior finishes in 2018 and Thorson delivered the completed project  in time for the family to enjoy the summer at the bluff. 

     Since its award-winning transformation in 2008, the owners of this waterfront summer home have been enjoying it to the fullest each year. But they wanted to take in the stunning ocean views from an even better viewpoint, so they added a rooftop sanctuary with a deck. The central staircase has been extended through the attic to a new space above. The top of the new structure was built on the ground, then hoisted by crane to its place atop the house. A new, larger dormer, to the right of the central tower (when viewed from the front of the house), has been added to enlarge the second-floor space.

Recently completed on this waterfront summer home is a beautifully designed addition. Expanding on to the home allows the family to gather and enjoy picturesque views from a difference vantage point.
