This year’s Boston Magazine Design Home opened its doors this month for six weeks of tours, and a few design surprises as well.
The sixth annual Design Home was built from the ground up by New England based builder Eugene Mattie. Located in the Boston suburb of Norwell, the 5,000 s.f. Greek style home is situated in the private community of Cowings Cove. It features a chef’s kitchen, separate butler’s pantry, 5 ½ bathrooms, 4 bedrooms, and the first ever “Ultimate Mom’s Retreat” concept.

The multi-purpose woman’s oasis was conceptualized and constructed by Mattie and occupies the home’s entire fourth floor. With many feminine flourishes, the room was crafted in collaboration with KISS 108-FM “Matty in the Morning” radio personality Lisa Donovan.

“The project showcases leading design components, brands, and products from the Greater Boston design community, while raising funds for a very worthy cause through public tours,” said Boston magazine CEO Rick Waechter.
“By design, the forest's edge can be viewed from every level of the rear of the home,” said Mattie. “The home’s nature-inspired scheme was created to pay homage to the tranquil setting in Cowings Cove.”
The home features products from sponsors: Circle Furniture Clarke, The Ultimate Kitchen Resource, Classic Tile & Stone, Derby Street Shoppes, Dover Rug & Home, Boston Interiors, RoomScapes Luxury Design Center and many more.
All proceeds from the house tours will benefit the Ronald McDonald House of Charities of Eastern New England, providing stability and resources for families with seriously ill or injured children.
