This contemporary beach cottage was designed by BPC Architecture in collaboration with Hanley Development, located in Nantucket, Massachusetts. The house features a wonderful flow throughout, with the main level featuring a living room, dining room, kitchen and pantry, media room, mudroom, laundry room and powder bathroom. There are also two en-suite bedrooms, one of which is a downstairs master featuring french doors that leads out to the backyard and swimming pool.

What We Love: This summer beach cottage offers a beautiful floorplan layout that encourages comfort and relaxation. Nautical elements are abound through the use of shiplap, rattan, light woods and beachy hues. There is a fantastic indoor-outdoor connection that makes entertaining a breeze… Readers, what do you find most intriguing about the design of this beach house?
