After a fire destroyed the original house – this Nonquitt, Massachusetts summer retreat was reborn as a simple, elegant shingle style home.
The summer cottage that once stood on this piece of lovely Nonquitt property was once owned by Louisa May Alcott, famous author of the classic novel, Little Women. Although a beloved piece of history was lost, we are proud to have replaced it with a gorgeous, classic new construction home.
As we continue to wrap up the final details of this project, we are excited to share a bit about the exterior!
Nothing speaks “New England” more than natural, cedar shingles. Opting for the highest quality siding, this home features Teal #1 Western Red Cedar Shingles. Specially selected from the forests along the Fraser River in Western Canada, Teal’s Western Red Cedar Shingles are sought from selective builders around the world. (Take note of the beautifully woven corners and natural cedar trim that is painted a deep, hunter green.) Known for both beauty and durability, these shingles are naturally resistant to weather and insects. Our Nonquitt project overlooks Buzzards Bay and will rely on the strength of it’s Western Red Cedar Shingles to withstand the winds of Nor’easters and Hurricanes.
A new GAF Timberline HD Lifetime Roofing System in Fox Hollow Gray comes with a 50 year, factory registered warranty. With water and ice dam protection, drip edge and GAF’s re-engineered Timberline shingles – the Nonquitt home will enjoy a lifetime of year round protection from the harsh, New England weather.
Andersen 400 Series Clad Windows were installed throughout the home. Designed with style and engineered for energy efficient functionality, their timeless beauty compliments the craftsmanship and style of the Western Red Cedar Shingles.
The wrap around porches were custom built with mahogany decking and boast all cedar trim, rails, and posts. Thanks to superb craftsmanship and top quality products, our homeowners will enjoy a lifetime of ocean views and family time.
