Beyond the bar is a library with a 12-foot ceiling featuring two belt-driven ceiling fans. Wood built-in bookcases provide storage and display space, and chic white chairs add an unexpected jolt of modern style.
Library: Cape Cod Estate on Buzzards Bay in Dartmouth, Mass.
In the west tower of the home, the wood-paneled library features a floor-to-ceiling beachstone and driftwood chimney breast under a beamed and vaulted ceiling. An arched door leads to a waterfront balcony.
