With a breezeway framing the magnificent vista of the ocean and multiple seating areas designed for ultimate relaxation, this seaside retreat is all about the view. 

The owners wanted a home that was casual, easy to maintain, and could accommodate their large extended family. More importantly, they wanted to relish the remarkable sights of Green Harbor in East Falmouth, Massachusetts, and beyond.

With this in mind, the team of Hutker Architects and interior designer Eileen Peretz created an open floor plan featuring a large great room where many people could congregate at the same time. Within this area are three separate spaces—the kitchen, dining room, and living room.  Green Harbor Cottage5

The living room seating area is composed of four inward-facing chairs, allowing guests to keep conversation flowing. Teal cushions contrast nicely with the dark rattan chairs and coordinate with the natural colors of the surrounding scenery. Each room of this special beach getaway embraces the ambiance of its breathtaking location.

White cabinets, slate countertops, and the white mosaic marble tile backsplash of the kitchen create an unadorned and stylish space. Green Harbor Cottage2

Soft blue and sea-green fabrics reminiscent of the sky and water give this room a soothing feel without drawing attention away from the spectacular view.   Green Harbor Cottage6

The upstairs study looks out onto a picturesque balcony where family members can soak up the sun or lounge indoors in one of the large wicker chairs flanking the doorway. Built-in shelves at the top of the stairs add convenient storage.Green Harbor Cottage4

Details such as white wainscoting, pale-blue walls, and a rug-shaped inset of mosaic tiles adorn this serene bathroom.
