Stage Harbor Overlook

Chatham, MA

Designed for indoor-outdoor living, this new-build shingle-style residence balances the appeal of a traditional coastal cottage with the desires of its contemporary clients. The steeply sloped site and a variety of zoning stipulations presented challenges, but the constraints ultimately led to creative solutions that maximize the magic of this harbor-view oasis.

The house appears modest from the street, blending into its neighborhood, but the water side expands to three levels with panoramic views from windows, French doors, decks, porches.

The open-plan, light-filled interiors, finished with finely crafted millwork and built-ins, comfortably support intimate and large gatherings of family and friends.
