WoodCraft Designers & Builders, a leading manufacturer of unique commercial architectural millwork solutions, added an impressive client to its portfolio with the recent renovation of The Club at New Seabury, a premier golf resort community with spectacular views of the Nantucket Sound. This private club is home to two of New England’s championship waterfront golf courses, the award-winning Ocean Course, designed by William Mitchell, and its sister Dunes Course.
In January, Woodcraft was awarded a contract to help design, manufacture and provide all the custom interior architectural millwork for “95 Shore Restaurant” – New Seabury’s new-concept and upscale dining replacement for the club. Early in the project, the company’s role quickly expanded, however, when in mid-February, Woodcraft Managing Partner Lukasz Wasiak was asked to serve as Construction Manager for the club’s entire capital renovation project. Working with architectural firm S3 Design, Inc., and Interior Design Concepts and Remodeling, the $4.5 million renovation was completed ahead of schedule and ready for scheduled Memorial Day Weekend weddings. The new look of this stunning oceanfront property was captured in a June ribbon-cutting ceremony and a feature article in the June issue of New England Golf.
Against a backdrop of 1,500 acres and oceanfront views, the newly renovated Club at New Seabury features the restaurant 95 Shore, with an outdoor wraparound deck featuring gas lit fireplaces, an expansive white cedar gazebo with seating for 120 guests, and a unique, custom climate controlled wine wall which holds over 800 bottles.
The design elements included oceanic tile, custom herringbone plank cedar, quartz counters throughout, and several coastal themed and custom-built industrial elements in the beautiful new bar area of 95 Shore all against a backdrop of exposed wood beams. This extensive renovation for the buildings on the golf course, which first opened in 1962, showcases the stunning setting while maintaining its historic Cape Cod charm.
Wasiak said, “We were honored to have been chosen for this major role in New Seabury’s renovations. The finished look of the property is nothing less than spectacular. It was a great opportunity to be part of the team that brought this vision to reality.”
Other hospitality work in the Woodcraft portfolio includes Stroudwater Lodge – Westbrook, ME; Avalon Residences at Hingham Shipyard; The Kendrick – Needham, MA ( a Toll Brothers property); and The Residence’s at Rose Wharf – Boston.
