Room with a View

Despite its prime location on the water, this house in Manchester-by-the-Sea wasn’t taking full advantage of the scenic views. The homeowners often found themselves relaxing on the sun porch, which faced the water, rather than in the living room behind it. Now, after a dramatic remodel, they enjoy that pleasant, sunny ambiance in the comfort of a sophisticated waterfront living room.
