Titus Built, LLC is on its way to completing the Harbor View Waterfront Project. This renovation has been a joy for us to work on from the custom interior doors to the imported accessories. The first floor family room has views of the water through the floor to ceiling windows. Sophisticated and elegant features include the coffered ceiling, antique oak parquet flooring imported from France and a handmade Burgisser fireplace mantel.
The handmade family room Burgisser fireplace mantel, imported from Italy, has been delivered and will be installed this week.
To our surprise, Recuperando srl also sent a French iron coat of arms fireplace insert… location to be determined… we all want dibs on this one!
The third floor consists of a living room as well as a guest bedroom. The living room ceiling is of reclaimed barn board and oak beams. Entry to the living room is through glass pane French doors imported from France.
The third floor guest bedroom has oak beams open to a cupola.
The master bathroom has a steam shower. Shower walls, floor and ceiling tiles are shell stone circles in a mosaic pattern with honed Crema Marfil borders. Bathroom floor is of the same material and pattern.
Exterior is finished in white cedar shingles, approximately 2” thick thin stone veneer on exposed foundation and seawall and Ipe wood decking and stair railing.
Ipe (pronounced EE-pay) is an environmentally friendly, exotic hardwood that is naturally resistant to mold, fire, rot and decay; it is virtually knot-free with very little to no warping; and, if left to naturally weather, Ipe will stay smooth and splinter free and will turn into a light silvery gray patina.
Can’t wait to see final photos… when completed, this project will be a stunning showpiece of old world craftsmanship. In the meantime, you can view our progress photos of this home renovation by reading our Waterfront Property Renovation Update Blog.
