Designer Lisa Tharp Brings A Salt Marsh Colonial to Life
Lisa Tharp captured the beauty of a Salt Marsh in this renovated salt box colonial. If you have a chance, on her website she shared a video of the renovation. When I was in high school my family moved to Florida for a few years, and when we finally decided to move back home to Duxbury, Massachusetts, and as we approached the turn off, I saw a sight that made me realize that I was home.. I can’t explain the beauty of the North River Marsh, but it is a sight that brings peace of mind…kind of like the song “easy like Sunday Morning”….home.
This simple saltbox home is sensitively renovated and expanded to host gatherings with family and friends. Lisa's interior architectural plan maximizes light and views while deriving space efficiency and materials inspiration from New England boat-building traditions. Vaulted-ceiling additions include Kitchen, Dining Room, Master Bedroom and Screen Porch, which add spaciousness to cozy original rooms. I hope you love this beach pretty house as much as I do.
