Osterville Captain’s Compound • Excellence in Remodeling • Whole House

In renovating this now Jay Gatsby-esque estate, Jaxtimer and architect Patrick Ahearn worked to preserve the integrity of the original, historic home while reimagining it for the 21st century. “The goal,” says Ahearn, “was to create a grand summer cottage that could have been designed in the 1920s in New England.” The team reconfigured the interior, orienting living spaces to take advantage of the beautiful seaside vistas and expanding the footprint to accommodate a large family and summer guests. Outside, there are now five outdoor living spaces to enjoy, including a pool area and a private terrace off the master suite.

 Seaview Secret Garden • Excellence in Landscape/Garden Design

This Osterville memorial garden, honoring the homeowners’ late mothers, is a hidden woodland retreat set across the street from their seaside home. The team at Jaxtimer, in collaboration again with landscape architect Bernice Wahler, achieved the homeowners’ vision of a timeless, rustic outdoor space by using aged natural materials, including reclaimed brick and weathered stone. A formal dipping spa and fountain serve as focal points amidst the topiary and the flora of the parterre gardens. The bluestone terrace was designed for outdoor entertaining, allowing for a larger gathering space, and Jaxtimer transformed the garage into a personal gym.
