Inside a modern yet warm and welcoming New England beach house


modern-new-england-beach-house-exterior-dusk

This New England beach house was designed by SV Design in collaboration with Windover Construction, located on Boston’s North Shore, Massachusetts. What originally began as a renovation project evolved into a modern house, inspired by the natural beauty of the surroundings.

The modern structures are perfectly aligned with the coastline, and take full advantage of the views of the ocean, islands, and shoals. The location is within walking distance of town and its amenities, yet miles away in the privacy it affords. The house is nestled on a nicely wooded lot, giving the residence screening from the street, with an open meadow leading to the ocean on the rear of the lot.

The design concept was driven by the serenity of the site, enhanced by textures of trees, plantings, sand, and shoreline. The newly constructed house sits quietly in a location advantageously positioned to take full advantage of natural light and solar orientations. The visual calm is enhanced by the natural material: stone, wood, and metal throughout the home.

The main structures are comprised of traditional New England forms, with modern connectors serving to unify the structures. Each building is equally suited for single-floor living if that future need is ever necessary. Unique too is an underground connection between the main house and an outbuilding.
