Abbie's Lane

Falmouth, MA

This compact 4,000 square foot cottage is well-integrated into a walkable Falmouth neighborhood, providing a serene summer getaway for a growing family. The home’s streamlined silhouette is clad in red cedar shingles, with a decorative façade offering balance and scale. Prominent elliptical arches with matchboard siding define the entry porch’s perennial style. A Chippendale balustrade from the primary suite avails additional deck space and a projecting wide oriel window above lends a playful visual element. The back entry to the home is idyllically framed by a left-of-center arbor gate, leading to a year-round screened-in family room with radiant floors, custom millwork, and built-in fans for a seamless indoor-outdoor connection. The interiors embody a relaxed elegance with warm rift sawn white oak paired with matchboard siding, combined with soft hues of color throughout. The stylish and inviting living areas are imbued with natural light emphasizing traditional fenestration and high ceilings.
