INTERIORS Unique Antique T This waterfront home continues to cause quite a lot of buzz despite its 14-month- long renovation being completed two years ago. Originally built in 1975, the home posed some unique challenges, including that the house sits on a World War I air naval station. This meant there was solid con- crete just below the surface that had to be hammered out for the pool, pool house, and landscaping. Also, given the home’s age and proximity to the water, the footprint could not be expanded during the renovation. The exterior style of the house is New England Cape. Patrick Ahearn, the architect on the project, created a new narrative for the home saying, “It feels like an antique house lovingly restored, but accommodates the way that people want to live today.” WRITTEN BY Bek Mitchell-Kidd INTERIOR DESIGN BY Craig Tevolitz and Elizabeth McCann, Platemark Design INTERIOR PHOTOGRAPHY BY Michael J.
