Cuffs Cove in Edgartown

Here is a fantastic home in Cape Cod! It is hidden in a small enclave in Edgartown, Massachusetts, called Cuffs Cove. Another gem designed by Hutker Architects.

As usual we find spectacular architecture! This room really needs no adorning. What an unbelievable fireplace - a testament that great mason craftsman still exist. Simple upholstery , almost no accessories, allow the architecture of the room to speak. The kitchen continues the wonderful post and beam design. I love the use of the butcher block with the solid surface counter. Notice the overhead lighting used, soft schoolhouse house pendants which cast a soft glow rather a harsh overhead light from canned recessed fixtures. Very simple cabinets, hardware and backsplash tile. Again your focus is on the architecture of the room. The Solarium! A serene space, again using a very neutral palette so the focus is on the incredible conservatory. I love the zinc lantern!
Walkway to pool and outdoor entertaining area. I have always preferred grass walkways to complete stone walkways. I like the contrast of texture and especially the way the grass softens the hardscapes. The addition of the pergolas, calling out for climbing roses, will be quite beautiful in the summer. Care for a dip in the pool or a cocktail?
A beautiful home on Cape Cod, with architectural detail that speaks for itself!
