Classic Cape Cod addition and renovation

This family wanted to create a retreat for their grown children, grandchildren and and pets to come together, and to expand and update a traditional Cape for modern summer living. By adding a wing to the existing cottage, two additional bedrooms and a bath were gained upstairs, while the first floor married the charming existing knotty pine living room and dining room with a new airy kitchen and family room. The kitchen is in a central breezeway with an upper gallery hall that connects the old and new bedroom wings above. The secret balcony boasts a spectacular ocean view, and the enlarged deck allows for entertaining all summer long.
