This New England Summer House Is a Fresh Take on Old-School Maine

We're officially into linoleum floors.

Jeff Robets

With its New England charm and epic ocean views, Maine’s Mount Desert Island tends to evoke rapturous devotion from visitors—especially regulars like Leandra Fremont-Smith. “It’s a magical place,” says the designer, who grew up summering in the nearby town of Bar Harbor. So when a couple contacted her about renovating their own ramshackle 120-year-old house just down the road in Northeast Harbor, she knew she had to help save it.

A classic turn-of-the-century Maine summer cottage, this shingled house is actually a sprawling five-bedroom structure built on a rocky ledge.

Built by famed local architect Fred L. Savage, once-beautiful Sunset Ledge was in less-than-pristine condition. “Often these amazing houses will get neglected as they’re passed down through generations,” says Fremont-Smith. “Everything was a mustardy green, the windows needed replacing, and while it wasn’t quite falling off the ledge it was named after, it was in pretty rough shape.”

Still, it had plenty of old-Maine charm, which the owners were intent on keeping intact. When Fremont- Smith suggested ripping out the dated kitchen, the wife asked that she just update it instead. “She wanted it to feel like Maine,” 福彩便民中心开机号says the designer, who ended up repainting the original cabinets and installing a brand-new but vintage-feeling linoleum floor. The designer suggested soapstone countertops—considered “very Maine” for their rustic, old-fashioned charm—but they were too much upkeep for a summer house, so in went a dark quartz instead.

She chose patterns that hearkened back to William Morris prints that might have been found in the original house, “But fresher—I didn’t want it to scream Arts and Crafts,” she says.

Now, the once-crumbling house is full of activity—just as it was at the turn of the century. “Finally,” says Fremont-Smith, “someone arrived to give it the love it needed.”
