A Home by the Sea by Hutker Architects

Mention fabulous residential architecture in Massachusetts and inevitably you will hear the name Hutker Architects. Their work has been published in leading design magazines including Coastal Living and Architectural Digest. Also the winner of numerous design awards and most recently inducted into the New England Design Hall of Fame, Mark Hutker, and his team, have created an impressive body of work.
Let's have a look at a wonderful, newly constructed ocean front home. This is the view of the impressive home from the water.
From the entry the home feels inviting; not huge or imposing.
This was achieved by designing a courtyard setting. Notice the the garage barn doors and wonderful coastal landscaping. It looks as if this house was just dropped on to the beach dunes.
A wonderful feature is the front entry porch which opens and looks directly through the back doors to the ocean. I love the columns, notice the heft of them and how the base is larger on the bottom.
The living room truly captures the coastal feel. I love the inlaid wood compass rose on the floor. I suspect it is positioned to point just as the house sits on the property.
Another angle of the living room which gives us a peek at some lovely window seats.
The view from the Butler's Pantry into the Dining Room and then on to the Living Room.
Pretty white kitchen with mosaic backsplash. Emeco industrial stools at the center island.
Of course if you are guests here you would be staying in the Guest House on the property. I love how well this home compliments the main house.
Here is the Guest House kitchen, artfully designed to include every appliance. I suspect this is stocked with all kinds of wonderful goodies
Notice the beautiful ceiling details.
Finally, no home by the ocean is complete with out a boat house. What a sweet, charming structure and so well landscaped.

Thanks to Hutker Architects for designing another wonderful home by sea...
