I have been spending some down time with my family at the beach – no TV and limited computer access. Peaceful and relaxing time. Being at the ocean is so inspirational to me that I wanted to share with you this gorgeous home in Cape Cod, designed by the wonderful firm, Hart Architects.
A spectacular ocean front property renovated to support a modern family’s needs. I love the softness of the crushed gravel driveway, so common on the Cape.
The architects were phenomenal, really paying to attention to every beautiful detail. Let’s have a look inside.
The living room is lovely. Notice the deep arched entry ways and beamed ceilings. I love the x detailing on the doors and the soft graceful turn of the staircase. Notice that the room is painted white, but because there is so much architectural interest, the room is warm and inviting. Looking through the doorway on the right you can see the library.
I adore the warmth of an all wood room. You can see a bit of the ocean through the French doors - I could spend hours here!
The family room is lovely of palette of white and soft blue. You can see the kitchen beyond. I like the columns and the half wall division between the two spaces. Its visually gives each room its own defined area, but still feels very open and airy.
Another photo which shows the kitchen more closely. White cabinetry, subway tiles and bin pulls keep it classic but fresh.
A second kitchen area has a wonderful cozy keeping area. Perfect for enjoying that morning cup of coffee. Notice the peaked ceiling – with the ceiling height and the windows and French doors, the space appears much larger.
More French doors invite you out to enjoy the spectacular vistas. I love this little seating nook.
Finally a spectacular sunroom! Notice the gorgeous ceiling and the fireplace – Fabulous!!!
