Rockaway Beach Residence

After Hurricane Sandy, the owners of this beachfront home decided to show their faith and commitment to the future of their home town by buying and refurbishing a house in a prominent location right on Rockaway Beach. The family wanted their home to be a casual, inviting vacation spot for their family of four kids, with plenty of amenities for fun and entertaining, as well as relaxing. They also wanted to make an optimistic design statement, combining the best of classic New England coastal ambiance with a forward-looking eclectic modern flair.  A perfect example is the use of actual reclaimed wood from the former Rockaway boardwalk to construct portions of the exterior decking and custom millwork – a gesture that celebrates the community’s past while also symbolizing rebirth and renewal.
