2016 BRICC Awards • E.J. Jaxtimer Builder, Inc.
E.J. Jaxtimer Builder, Inc. of Hyannis offers custom building, landscape, millwork and property management services on Cape Cod. Now entering its 40th year in business, the company places emphasis on client satisfaction and top-notch workmanship with every project. The following projects delivered on both fronts and received gold recognition at the 2016 BRICC Awards—giving Jaxtimer the honor of being the only Cape company to win four gold BRICC awards last year.
East Bay Residence • Excellence in Remodeling • Whole House
Originally built in 1870, this Osterville abode was suffering from significant disrepair prior to recent renovations. The project, a collaboration with architect Patrick Ahearn, developed into a major undertaking that included additions to the original cottage, construction of a new carriage house and pool cabana, a putting green, and a new landscape program. One of the biggest challenges the house presented was that it lacked a formal front façade. The team redeveloped the site to create a romantic, circular arrival sequence—defined by an allee of trees and a new formal entrance.
Craigville Beach Retreat • Excellence in Outdoor Living Space Design
Working alongside landscape architect Bernice Wahler, the team at Jaxtimer transformed the dated outdoor living space of this grand Mediterranean oasis along Nantucket Sound into a luxurious haven. A renovated pool area, originally built in the 1990s, features a new 20’ by 60’ saltwater pool and 14’ by 14’ infinity spa. To take full advantage of the 270-degree waterfront views, the entire backyard was re-graded, lowering the elevation of the pool by 16 inches. Jaxtimer replaced the extensive, uneven brick paving of the patio and pool terrace with modern buff-colored stone paving, accented in different finishes to add interest.
