Spindrift traditional-entry


This Gambrel style residence has been completely upgraded to satisfy todays’ standards while restoring and reinforcing the original 1885 design. It began as a Summer Cottage accessible by train from Boston, and is now a year round residence. The essence of the structure was maintained, while enhancing every detail. The breadth of craftsmanship is evident throughout the home resulting in a comfortable and embellished aesthetic.

Thanks for your question. The contractor chose the adhesive so we aren't sure.

Thanks for your question jday535. The arch is about 10' wide. We would not recommend putting a door in a application like this.

I purchased finials like these from McKinney Direct in the UK; shipping was almost as much as the finials themselves, but they are gorgeous and worth every penny!

The wainscoting is painted Dove White by Ben Moore and the other color is actually a custom wall paper.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Shawn Gauthier added this to Crystal: Brilliant Choice for Rooms
Top your staircase banisters with crystal finials. These crystal balls may not let you see into the future, but they certainly let everyone see a sophisticated accessory.
