Newly built to replicate the original 1905 structure, this thoughtfully designed beach house exudes the casual and understated vernacular of the West Chop homes of the early 20th century. Every modern amenity is seamlessly incorporated, yet the 5 BR, sprawling cape style home looks like it has presided over the outer harbor for many years. Spectacular views of all the harbor activity, ferries, East Chop and the Cape can be enjoyed from 3 living levels and the sandy beach is perfect for sunning and swimming. Multi-generational living is easy as there are a variety of open and intimate spaces, all with 10 foot ceilings and 1/4 sawn oak floors, as well as custom 6/1 windows and fir doors with original glass knobs. The expansive gourmet kitchen has a commercial range, multiple workstations, pantry and several refrigeration units. One of the two 1st floor BRs is a handicapped accessible suite. The large living room has an oversized fireplace and exposed painted beams and wainscoting in keeping with cottage chic. A three-season porch has interchangeable screen and glass panels and is accessed from the mahogany deck. A dramatic two-story foyer was designed with rounded walls as if ascending the steps of a lighthouse, and the custom newel post replicates the West Chop light. The 2nd story features a master suite with private study and balcony as well as two other BRs and full bath. The water side of lower level is totally above grade, with commanding views of its own. A media room has acoustic ceilings and is wired for projection and surround sound. The huge family room has a built-in bar and an exercise area is tucked behind a wall of doors taken from the original house. Another full bath and laundry room, as well as direct access to the back yard make this space a perfect stop between the beach and the rest of the house. A separate heated work/utility space has two cedar closets and a handsome fir workbench. No detail has been spared in the design and execution of this wonderful shingle style home, yet the prevalent feeling is that of a turn-of-the century West Chop summer retreat. The views from all three living levels are superlative and the 1.1 acre parcel is large enough for a pool and garden. Just steps from the Yacht Club but set in a very private and exclusive enclave just a mile from town.
