  • Renovations: Artists at Work

    Crescent Cove is so grateful to have a team of talented artists: sculptors, painters, and designers who are helping make Crescent Cove a truly special place. Our team is hard at work, putting a grid on the main wall of the home that will transform into a very special piece. You’ll have to wait to see the final product, but in the meantime, here is our team!
