South Dartmouth, MA

"At first glance, this gracious Shingle Style home looks as though it’s been perched in its spot along the Massachusetts coastline for the last century or so. And that was precisely the intent. The homeowners’ vision was to build a generational summer retreat that they would enjoy with their children and future grandchildren. Designed to accommodate family gatherings, the main home is equipped for entertaining large groups year-round; it also serves as a quiet place for the couple to unwind and work. With guest quarters located above the detached garage and a beach cottage that the husband uses as his office, each structure exists in harmony with each other and the landscape, creating a lovely, secluded oasis." -Boston Design Guide
