An arched doorway leads to the side lawn of this waterfront home on Massachusetts' Chapoquoit Island. Shingle siding, contrasting white trim and peaked gables are all hallmarks of the home's Cape Cod-style architecture. Every room in the luxury home features a water view.
A new two-story extension was added to the house. The ground floor comprises the new dining room, kitchen, bathroom and guest bedroom. The second floor is a bright loft space that is used as an office.
The HGTV Dream Home 2015 front entrance features a covered portico with two classic columns. “Because of New England weather, you don’t want to be standing out at your front door as the rain comes down,” says interior designer Linda Woodrum.
“We have a very large back patio, and we have a seating area there and a large dining area with an umbrella,” says HGTV Dream Home 2015 designer Linda Woodrum. “It’s just a very peaceful, private outside space that’s comfortable, inviting and another place to live.”
With a secluded backyard just overlooking Little Harbor, this Cape Cod-style home becomes a stunning seaside oasis. The private pool and stone patio allow for entertaining and soaking in the natural surroundings.
This picturesque home features a brown wood shingle exterior with a slightly red hue, a perfect accent to the gray rooftop and rust colored front door. A three-car garage provides ample space for stowing away vehicles, while perfectly manicured landscaping completes the grand overall look of the estate.
The home draws inspiration from traditional Cape Cod architecture with a few twists of its own. The stacked stone veneer adds a rustic element to the facade, while decorative window trim makes up for the absence of shutters.
TriplePoint Design Build pulled out all the stops in its modern adaptation of this Cape Cod home to uplift its beauty and charm. The siding in dark taupe contrasts nicely against the bright white of the exterior trim, while complementing the medium-toned wood door. The home makes a cohesive, attractive and inviting presence from a street level view.
