 DESIGN FOR EASY LIVING, A CONTEMPORARY BEACH HOUSE IN SCARBOROUGH TAKES ITS CUES FROM THE LANDSCAPE

 

The materials palette of this Scarborough beach house was selected for long-term low maintenance and durability, according to builder Jake Gott of Timber Island Builders. The exterior features cypress and ipê trim, mahogany windowsills, ipê decking, galvanized steel beams, and Maibec double-dipped shingles. The roof features red cedar, steel, and copper. “The intent was that the building patinas rather than grays,” says Gott.

An open kitchen, anchored by a massive island by cabinetmaker Derek Preble, features ample windows further extended by transoms. Homeowner Kathy Brodowski selected tile, furnishings, and finishes, which builder Geoff Bowley and architect David Graham brought to life.

This room used to have blue walls, a drop, acoustical-tile ceiling, and a pool table. As part
of a renovation, the builder raised the ceiling to the rafters, inserted skylights, paneled the ceiling in beadboard, and added a gas fireplace and decorative balcony, whose rails mimic the exterior porch’s railing. Hurlbutt Designs in Kennebunk used sturdy outdoor Ralph Lauren fabric for the wingback chairs, part of an effort to make the house renter-friendly.
