A stately home in the English Tudor style, it sits along the west shore of Casco Bay in Cape Elizabeth, Maine. This unique residence was built in the mid to late 1920’s. The construction details of this house are that more commonly seen in commercial projects of the time. It is a house of substantial construction, it incorporates structural concrete floor assemblies, a six inch bluestone masonry veneer and terracotta tiled roof. It is a house that was planned and built to last through the ages.
In 2005 44 North was commissioned by the owner at the time to completely update the historic structure that was otherwise virtually untouched for 80 years. Approximately, 1,500sf of additions were added and the interior completely gutted from basement to attic where the entire building was brought into the 21st century. The first and second floor plans were redesigned and spaces like an old den were repurposed into a modern kitchen with added breakfast nook and small bedrooms were combined to accommodate a luxurious Master Suite that opens out onto a second floor roof deck. A semicircle Conservatory was added with a curved wall of glass to capitalize on the views of the bay. Exterior patios and roof decks were redesigned to better connect the house to beautiful landscape features. A new side entry and mudroom were incorporated as a compliment to the driveway.
