Colonial Cape Cod                       

Design-Build                                    2500SF
 

Looking to find retreat from "city life", a former client of ours who is a DIYer, contracted Rave to assist him in finding an ideal property, provide complete design services and to shell the structure. Peacefully situated on 1.5 acres in the northern end of Gloucester, the inspiration for this Colonial Cape Cod came from a picture the client had been carrying around in his wallet for years. This home features 3BRs, 2 full baths, a first floor master suite and a 2-car garage with a studio apartment above which is where the client resided until he finished the interior of his home.
