Seaside Gem

Returning a coastal bed and breakfast dating back to the 1880s to a single-family home while remaining faithful to the home's original design.

This former bed and breakfast gets a new lease on life as a single-family home.

The original house was "underdesigned" says architect Anthony Barnes, and needed a new floorplan to open up ocean views.

New, larger windows in the living room expand the water view, but instead of sheets of glass that would have looked too modern, Barnes used muntins and transoms to maintain the “human scale of the old cottage structure.”

Barnes' design added arched openings in the two-foot thick stone walls to open the additions to the main house.

The new family room has a better connection to the outdoors.

The crew removed plaster to expose and highlight this stone wall near the kitchen.

The master bedroom, stacked above the dining room, has a larger balcony
