Chatham Shoreline

Inspired by the Sea

A beautiful Cape Cod home hearkens back to the early 20th century

When a couple with a lifelong history of summers spent on Cape Cod bought a prominent property in Chatham and hired Patrick Ahearn, a Martha‚Äôs Vineyard- and Boston-based architect known for historically sensitive designs, they thought they would renovate the early 20th-century home that already stood on the site. But after further investigation and consulting with a building inspector who said there were “structural deficiencies beyond repair,” a full demolition was called for. However, the Chatham Historic Commission granted full approval to execute the proposed design intent, albeit all new construction.
