A Cape Cod’s functional addition provides unimpeded river views.

When you have a view like this lovely, but a little cramped, Cape Cod home, you don’t move – you make it work.


Adding On

Adding on to the back of the home allowed for an entirely new kitchen with a unique layout to make the most of the river views. Ceiling to counter windows with steel framing were specially designed to be structurally sound while creating a dreamy space to sit at the kitchen island and gaze out into the yard and river beyond.

A Subtle Shift

Shifting the kitchen into the back of the house allowed the old galley kitchen and cramped full bathroom to be redesigned into a spacious primary en-suite and separate powder room. Finishes were selected with the home’s architectural style in mind.

Simplicity in Style

Simple white cabinetry, subway tile and a neutral color palette were used in the bathrooms and bedroom. In the kitchen, colors were chosen to mimic the landscape itself. Dark gray cabinets on the bottom topped with earth-toned countertops, a bright green glazed tile backsplash, and white upper cabinets keep everything light and bright right where your eyes want to rest.

Seamless Transition

Seamlessly tying together old and new structures can be challenging, but the exterior of the addition compliments the home’s architecture and color palette, while also affording the family a new outdoor living space to enjoy their beautiful view even more.
