Shore to Inspire

Notice: Undefined variable: design_ideasRecord in /home/s2shost/public_html/sites/hh/stories/post.php on line 151

Shore homes have a distinct look and feel and these homeowners rely on experienced companies to achieve their vision. We asked some of them to tell us about a project that stands out—along with the challenges and triumphs—and the pictorial that follows showcases how their hard work paid off.

Built to Inspire
Pinnacle Building & Contracting created this lavish home in Wildwood Crest, N.J., for homeowners who lost their 900-square-foot bungalow due to a broken pipe. The clients wanted something different, overlooking Sunset Lake with decks and unobstructed views. The result is the Monterey: a three-story custom home with a reverse floor plan. What makes this home so unique is the second floor, which has an open floor plan, 20-foot-high vaulted ceilings and an en suite kitchen, living room and a 30-foot-catwalk overlooking the living area. The catwalk also leads to a third-floor deck where the homeowners can savor the Shore’s most beautiful sunsets.

Beautiful Inside and Out
When homeowners purchased this residence in Brigantine, N.J., they did so with the knowledge that some well-orchestrated adjustments would be in order. Built in the 1960s, the home had expanded through some “poorly executed” additions that needed to be addressed, according to Mike Brindisi, president of Brindisi Builders, which is based in Marlton. The client hired Brindisi Builders to update the home’s exterior to a more modern and elegant design—one that not only enhanced the home’s curb appeal but also enabled them to make better use of the property’s ample outdoor spaces. As part of the renovation, the client asked the firm to create a master bedroom more befitting of their renovated home.

All About the Upgrades
The renovation for this modern yet classic beach house in Brigantine, N.J., utilized a number of upgraded materials, such as James Hardie fiber cement siding, natural stone siding and a standing seam metal roof. It also included Infinity fiberglass windows from Marvin,  according to Adam Parnes, vice president of marketing for Global Home Improvement, which performed the renovation. He says Infinity windows are eight times stronger than vinyl and will not warp or become distorted under the hot summer sun. Due to the Shore’s sometimes-harsh climate, which includes high winds and salt air, the homeowner was determined to  create an exterior that was not only stunning but also maintenance-free. The whole-home  renovation’s many unique and intricate  details included a turret metal roof that was custom framed, satin-black deck railings,  a RainPro gutter system and an Azek Exteriors soffit system.

Breathing New Life into a Bungalow
Once a modest bungalow, this eye-catching home in Avalon, N.J., benefited from a complete transformation courtesy of Fine Architecture. In most cases this house would have qualified as a “tear down and rebuild,” according to Pamela Fine, owner of the Cape May Court House-based firm entrusted with the renovations. The owners wanted to not only save the home but also breathe new life into it. The project involved lifting the house to comply with flood height requirements—and it also received a sweeping renovation, including a  finely upgraded and modernized interior. The home- owners must be thrilled with the end result.
