The details of this home's landscaping cleverly connect the separate outdoor areas. For example, here, the beach pebble gravel in the driveway is also used for the walkway, making a seamless transition from parking the car all the way up to the front door.
With 6000 square feet of living space, the house is plenty comfortable. And there's an additional 6,000 square feet in the property's top-of-the-line horse barn that includes an office, kitchen and full bathroom.
In creating the design of this modern home, the architects chose an L-shaped configuration. The main living areas are up front and more connected to the neighborhood; a two-story private wing is tucked away in back and has its own secluded patio.
To keep this 4200-square foot oceanfront property from feeling too massive and overwhelming, the architects separated one huge structure into three more approachable ones. Long, low rooflines and a soft, winding driveway also enhanced the simple, relaxed feel the homeowners were wishing for.
Thanks to sleek landscape lights, the gravel driveway is visible even at night. Tall palms and other trees line the sides of the drive and ensure that guests stay on course until they've reached the front gate.
Keeping the materials simple for the front driveway helps to create a sleek, minimalist look. The raised concrete planter integrates seamlessly with the gravel driveway, and a simple tall hedge provides privacy and separation between the house and sidewalk.
The designers were very careful to pay close attention to Cape Cod style and details when choosing every aspect of HGTV Dream Home 2015’s front yard. Rather than a paved driveway, a traditional pea-gravel drive adds to the home’s New England style.
A welcoming beacon for friends and family, the beautiful HGTV Dream Home 2015 is bound to be favorite spot for entertaining. Lucky for guests, there is plenty of space for parking and more than enough gorgeous views of Martha's Vineyard to go around.
