Juliet bought the house in 2005. She and her husband are university professors in the Boston area who often lecture in Europe. With friends and children they love spending vacations, weekdays, and weekends in the house; Juliet reverse commutes to write in the home when not lecturing and residing in Boston. In the fall of 2012 a major renovation of the house went forward, changing what had been a 1.5 storey cape to this much larger home. The purpose was to add a study for Juliet, a garage, and room for guests and visiting colleagues. The decks off the house make it a splendid retreat in any season of the year, outdoor views of the ocean and fresh air may be easily gained from all levels of the home. The gas fireplace is lovely in winter. The private yard is perfect for play or rest. While the lapping ocean waves can be heard in the distance, the house is a bit quieter than those directly on the waterfront, as it is across the street, up an incline. It is also an open but flexible floor plan design, which feels cozy for a small group, but is roomy enough for 10+ people, each of whom can retreat to their own section of the house when they want to. Our architects did a marvelous job with the renovation: see http://www.rogerhoit.com/seaside_inspiration.html
A commuter boat or easy drive takes us to the city, but we feel as if we are far away in Maine or on the Cape while we're there. Great people in Hull: a mixed and festive community. The natural amenities are extraordinary and Hull will never be overbuilt. Simply a beautiful, restful place, closer to the city. Our neighborhood is the tops!
Commuter boat to the city weekdays all year 'round; 240 degrees of water views; 360 degrees of sun in the house and yard. A great reverse commute from the city, as well as a commute to the city. No flood worries, no wind worries, but we see all the large waves from the fall nor'easters. Beautiful every time of year, low key and fun. We relax there.
