Updated Design Details

The current design was developed by Brett Masterson, a New York architect and built by Phil Douglass of Bridgton Maine in 2012. Special care was taken to salvage as much of the original design, layout and materials in keeping with the original period of the house. The main building was preserved while the “ell”, being structurally unsound was removed. Significant improvements were made to the floor and roof joists for structural integrity. The result is a stunning combination of new and old, seamlessly blended into one structure. Many modern conveniences in the kitchen and baths compliment the more traditional designs of the bedrooms, dining and “smoking” room. A radiant, concrete floor stretches across the back of the house encompassing the kitchen, entry and family room areas. From the exterior, the house appears similar to what it did in the late 1800’s.A two car garage was razed in 2015, replaced with a two story barn clad in original wood from an 1800’s Maine barn.
