Siemasko + Verbridge
Architects & Designers
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 jday535. The arch is about 10' wide. We would not recommend putting a door in a application like this.

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.
