When the owners bought this 1850s home in 2007, it had been abandoned for nearly 10 years and had been subject to a fire. The restoration and rebirth of this house involved lifting the building from its foundations, re-pouring a new basement, reinforcing all of its original structure and re-building its protective sea wall. The interior systems have been updated with fully integrated computer controls, new mechanicals, an elevator and solar driven radiant heating. The historical ballroom was restored to its original grandeur, while the rest of the house features a modern design scheme. The renovation was completed with extreme attention to the environment, and received LEED Silver accreditation.
