Artisan Home Tour
One Weekend Only - June 23-25 from 12-6 PM
R22 - 3505 Watertown Rd, Orono
Since the fall, our team has been working with this lovely family in Orono to update their home. We're so excited to finally share our work during the Artisan Home Tour this June!
The existing property rested on a beautiful, wooded lot surrounded by wetlands and rolling hills. Our goal on this project was to create a home well-suited for both entertaining and relaxation.
Here are a few significant changes we made:
- The front of the house was reoriented to the opposite side so that it now faces the road.
- Finishes, fixtures, and appliances were selected to be durable and appropriate for the tranquil setting.
- A neutral palette was selected for most hard surfaces to serve as a backdrop for their collection of folk art, hand-carved wood pieces, and antiques.
- An added den was initially intended to serve as a visual balance to the overall space but resulted in a one-of-a-kind room with a vaulted ceiling, skylights, and breathtaking views of the surrounding trees.
- The primary suite was expanded to include a sauna and separate tub room while enhancing the views of the surrounding property.
- The expanded kitchen includes 22 windows, a unique hood detail, repurposed antique cabinetry to make up the island, and a black La Cornue range with brass accents.
- Hand-hewn reclaimed timbers decorate the ceiling and create a warm balance with fresh white finishes.
- The addition of a dual-purpose casita structure is the ideal spot to accommodate visiting guests and family while also serving as the pool house for the homeowners.
Don't miss your chance to explore this incredible renovation for one weekend only, June 23-25, during the Artisan Home Tour. We hope to see you there!
