Osterville, Massachusetts, United States
Boston based architectural firm Catalano Architects designed this fabulous shingle style estate on a large waterfront parcel with a private beach overlooking Nantucket Sound. The firm worked with C.J. Riley Builder, Inc. to bring the residence to life. There are four stories of living space with a dramatic two-storey entry with large windows framing the ocean view, a main staircase winding through a turret, a main floor master suite, gourmet kitchen, library, extensive millwork and a lower level complete with bowling alley, billiards and living area. According to C.J. Riley Builder, Inc., “Extensive millwork, in the library, the stairways’ newel posts and balusters, arched doorways and kitchen cabinetry, was custom fabricated on site by C.J. Riley Builder’s expert craftsmen and is a prevalent feature throughout the house. We also constructed a secondary building on the property which combines a guest house with a custom-crafted spiral staircase, pool house and multi-car garage.” The exterior is finished in bleached white cedar shingles with colonial revival inspired details.
