Davitt Design Build: Idlewild






Built in 1869, Idlewild is a 1-story, mansard-roofed dwelling located in a New England seaside town. The residence features a Tuscan-columned veranda and round-head dormer windows, as well as a guesthouse. As the first summer “villa” to be erected in the town, Idlewild anticipated the area’s imminent popularity as an ocean-side resort.

After falling into disrepair in recent decades, this landmark property passed to new owners who wished to restore, remodel, and revitalize the home. They wanted to preserve Idlewild’s historical character while meeting the lifestyle needs of their family.
