A shingle style getaway home gets a charming renovation on Cape Cod

shingle style home exterior

Patrick Ahearn Architect was commissioned to renovate and expand this early-1900s shingle-style home that is located in Osterville, a beautiful seaside town on Cape Cod, Massachusetts. This property had been in the family for generations and was in need of a refresh in order to meet the needs of a modern family.

The scope of the project included the renovation and expansion of the main residence along with the addition of a new multi-functional carriage house, pool, and cabana. It was important to keep the old home’s traditional feel and look while making it a more modern and livable space for this family of five and a dog.

In the main house, only the bones remain. A previous maze of rooms was replaced with a program that meets the needs of today’s discerning family. Symmetry and logic were inserted by centering the front door, adding a pair of balanced chimneys to the roofline, and rhythmically placing windows on the exterior.

New bay windows repeat on the front- and back-facing gambrels, as do double-decker porches which add romance and character.

The outdoor program is comprehensive and inviting, maximizing opportunities for enjoyment on a parcel just larger than half an acre. Guest quarters above the carriage house and a full aquatic program make hosting guests a joy at what is now a magnificent summertime retreat.

Inside, a central gallery now organizes the full interior program and connects both the first and second floors to the front and back decks. Bright spaces are clad in custom millwork and crown, elevating the interior presentation and creating spaces as beautiful as they are functional.

Design plans were created for each room to achieve the family’s vision of casual sophistication and a welcoming atmosphere for entertaining and enjoying the summer season. Simultaneously, these plans were thoughtfully devised to pay homage to the dwelling’s rich history, preserving a nostalgic essence throughout.
