Sometimes a place just gets in your blood. For a Boston-based couple with a blended family of six children (some in their teens, others married with kids), that place is Westerly, Rhode Island. The husband has summered in the quietly chic beach community since childhood, and his wife adopted it as a summer spot as well.
For Jean Verbridge, Principal at Beverly-based Siemasko + Verbridge, the path to a satisfying career as a commercial and residential interior designer ran through a plant store.
When longtime clients of Jean Verbridge, principal at SV Design, decided to upgrade to a ski-in, ski-out condo on Sugarbush mountain in Warren, VT., they surprised her with an out-of-character request: that she decorate using a neutral palette. "We used texture instead of color to make it interesting," says Verbridge.
This 3,200-square-foot 1941 home had great bones to begin with. Nestled on 1.25 acres of land in Gloucester, the house consists of five bedrooms, including the master bedroom and bunk room on the main level, and four bathrooms.
Building a new home involves many moving parts. If on part falls out of step, the entire process can be delayed or even thrust into chaos. That is why it is critical for homeowners to hire professionals that formulate a detailed game plan from the beginning to the end of a project, thus removing any guesswork and ensuring a smooth process without unexpected issues.
When Angela Kimball of AP Kimball Construction in Yarmouth Port received a call from Leslie Schneeberger, AIA, an associate principal with Siemasko + Verbridge Architects in Chatham, asking her to supply a bid for a new project they were working on, Kimball had to laugh a little at the moment of Cape Cod serendipity.
Nestled in among a collection of historic cottages in Ipswich, this cedar-shingled gambrel-roof summer cottage with a wraparound porch fits right in. But it took some imagination to make that happen.
There are fixer-uppers, and then there are lost causes. When Njora and Alexander Falk purchased-or more aptly, rescued-their Marblehead home in 2007, it fell somewhere in the gray area between these two categories.
Ten years ago when Jill and Scott Sullivan first bought their dream house at the water’s edge in Swampscott, they renovated the house top to bottom. “Our three children were small then,” Jill Sullivan says. “And so we made compromises some of which did not work out so great.”
