Last House on the LeftContemporary Living Room, Boston

Having been neglected for nearly 50 years, this home was rescued by new owners who sought to restore the home to its original grandeur. Prominently located on the rocky shoreline, its presence welcomes all who enter into Marblehead from the Boston area. The exterior respects tradition; the interior combines tradition with a sparse respect for proportion, scale and unadorned beauty of space and light.

This project was featured in Design New England Magazine.

    There is a lip on the shelf but the ornaments are not permanently attached.

    Thanks for your question. The shelf is about 6" deep and the back of it is just paneling.

    Thanks for your question. The cable box is in another closet. The TV transmits the signal.
