3,000 sq. Ft.
Pedigree: Located on one of the most exclusive spots on Cape Cod, this award-winning contemporary beach house was built by Alexandria, Virginia–based architect Michael Winstanley to be his own vacation home. Designed to recall the area’s legacy of boatbuilding and fishing, the wood-framed residence features dramatic floor-to-ceiling windows and bold interiors by Robert Pahnke.
Property Values: An expansive wraparound porch provides abundant areas for relaxing and entertaining, and a boardwalk leads to a private beach.
Talking Point: The house is elevated on wooden pilings three feet above the sand, so as not to disturb the site’s natural vegetation.
