A sleek construct unifying art, craft, and technology, this luxury home offers families and friends a spacious and comfortable way to live in the dunes on Cape Cod Bay. Five-star quality greets visitors immediately in the uniformity of the red cedar siding and Italian Tabu-ash veneer wall panels.

Smartly tucked behind the protective barrier of a coastal bluff, the 6,000-square-foot home runs parallel to the beach to offer expansive views from every room and main-floor porch. Visitors use stepping-stones to cross a shallow pool and to access stairs to a 680-square-foot roof deck offering space for lounging near the fireplace, sunbathing in lounge chairs, and refreshing at the full bar, complete with refrigerator and running water.

One level below, a 536-square-foot screened-in porch offers more fireside entertaining space. The main floor features a great room—for the kitchen, dining room, and living room—an office, den, and the master suite. The state-of-the-art geothermal heating and cooling system keeps the climate optimal, or you can open the massive sliding glass doors on either side of the house and let the ocean breeze flow through. In addition to a 149-square-foot bathroom, the master bedroom also opens up to a 224-square-foot outside shower room, with a standalone tub and a wall-size sliding blind that opens to the bay.

Downstairs provides a guest bedroom and full bath, and a 300 square-foot family room. Kids will enjoy the dual bunk rooms, each with a full bath and two sets of built-in bunk beds—one inside and the other outside in a screened-in section of the porch. Owners have easy access to the bay with a set of steep beach stairs, which cascade down the dramatic bluff.

Of course, the mechanical systems, including lights, heat, security and entertainment are controlled through an iPad, onsite or off.
