As summer creeps into New England, many of us are daydreaming about that picture perfect beach escape. An oceanfront home is the embodiment of luxury and relaxation, and we have the privilege to be working on a stunning one this summer. Though the project is still very much in progress, the shape it’s taken so far has us inspired for many summers to come. Take a look behind the scenes to get into that summer state of mind…

Located on the breathtaking Atlantic coastline, an oversized lot allows for a spacious ocean retreat. The residence has an inverted floor plan, meaning bedrooms are on the first floor and living spaces are on the upper level to maximize on gorgeous ocean views.
