Champlain’s Bluff: A Cape Cod Summer House on the Water

Original Post:

by hookedonhouses on November 16, 2011

After I featured a lovely beach house with blue shutters earlier this year, a reader named Marcia wrote me, saying, “I thought you’d like to see the work of the company I work for, which is similar. We are a design-build firm on Cape Cod in Massachusetts.”

I went to their site–Polhemus Savery DaSilva–and this gorgeous summer house on the water in Cape Cod immediately caught my eye.


When I was searching for more information about the house, called “Champlain’s Bluff” on their website, I discovered that it was featured in a book called Architecture of the Cape Cod Summer by Michael J. Crosbie.

Crosbie writes that the owners wanted a house that was “historically rooted, as if it had always been there, but that would also comfortably accommodate contemporary art and furnishings.”

I like the look of this stone fireplace in such a sleek, modern kitchen:

A fun boy’s room with a nautical theme:

The view of the water from the upstairs balcony is pretty amazing:

Thanks to Marcia for telling me about it! To see the rest of the photos, visit Polhemus Savery DaSilva. They just added more shots of this house to their Facebook page, too.
