Coastal Contemporary Home

model of contemporary house

This contemporary waterfront residence is a luxurious retreat with expansive windows facing water views and living spaces extending out to shaded terraces.

Situated in Orleans MA on a three-acre lot, the house follows the gentle slope of the existing natural landscape. A guest house, family room and cabana extend off the main house.

The house is a L-shape plan, with the primary spaces facing water views. A library forms the hub. A broad wood stair leads to the bedroom wing. A glass staircase leads down to a wine cellar.

Board-formed concrete, wood siding and windows, metal roofing, granite pavers creates a warm material palette. Custom trellises, concrete fireplaces, stairs, built-ins and spa provide focal points for the spaces.

This is a featured project from work experience with Charles Rose Architects, Inc., an innovative, award-winning firm based in Boston, MA.
