Coolidge Road, Marblehead, MA, Traditional New Home on Oceanfront Site.

This beautiful oceanfront home in Marblehead, MA was designed to be low and unassuming on the street side and wide open on the ocean side. The zoning limited the height of the house to 30' which was a challenge on a sloping site. The home is a traditional shingle style design that was intended to fit into the existing neighborhood. The view of the ocean is present at the entry. There are a few steps down to the living area which allow for even greater views with the higher ceiling. Beyond the backyard is an oceanfront spa and an infinity pool overlooking the surf below. Expansive decks on both levels of the back of the house allow for endless outdoor entertainment opportunities.

This traditional home office is comfortable yet all business. The teak flooring, bamboo window treatments and natural wood trim and molding soften the feel of the room and give it a more residential feel. The comfortable leather chairs are angled toward the media monitors which are used for conference calls and real time stock updates. Michael McCloskey
