Completed in May 2014
Our clients lived in a wonderful home that they referred to as their dream home until this property they admired for many years became available. Its location on a point with spectacular ocean views made it impossible to resist. This 40-year-old home was state of the art for its time. It was perfectly sited but needed to be renovated to accommodate their lifestyle and make use of current materials. Thus began the 3-year journey. They decided to capture one of the most exquisite views of Boston’s North Shore and do a full renovation inside and out. This project was a complete gut renovation with the addition of a guest suite above the garage and a new front entry.
Anita Clark Design’s role was to collaborate with the homeowners to bring their vision to reality. That included the space planning, selection of interior finishes, colors, and materials, furnishings of which most were custom designed and fabricated, fabrics, floor coverings, window treatments, lighting, artwork, and accessories down to the last detail.
The success of this project was having exceptional homeowners that wanted this project to be their dream home utilizing the best team of professionals that collaborated together to reflect their vision.

Project Plans and Approach
This 40-year-old home is an example of a project that needed a complete gut renovation of both the interior and the exterior in order to bring it’s full potential to life. We were able to accomplish that with all new features and furnishings, and allowed the views of the ocean to remain a key feature of the home with careful space planning
