Family-Friendly Layout including Open Loft
This home, built on a rare vacant lot in the heart of Osterville Village, was completed late in 2014. A varied roofline and the use of multiple dormers along its front give the home a classic, snug New England appearance, yet the living space is more than 3,000 square feet. A low natural stone retaining wall adds character and creates a level front lawn. A gas-burning streetlamp is a thoughtful touch which harkens to the days of ‘old Cape Cod.’ Inside the wide front door is a two-story foyer. Its walls are lined with tongue-in-groove, white-painted woodwork and a staircase, custom-built onsite, leads to the second floor. The open area at the top of the stairs offers a comfortable sitting area. Two bedrooms, one with an adjacent private office, share a full bath while a third, larger bedroom has en suite bath. The first floor has an open-floor plan living and dining area and a chef’s kitchen with a large center island. A sitting area, with a cathedral ceiling and gas-burning fireplace, is tucked away to one side. Both the living area and first-floor master suite, which has a full bath and separate dressing room, have sliders opening to the private backyard. A butler’s pantry and laundry room are also located on the first floor.
