Cape Associates broke ground on this modified Cape-style home in Brewster in late 2012.
Designed and built under the USGBC’s rigorous LEED for Homes requirements, the home features a solar panel array on the roof, an air barrier (to prevent air leakage between interior and exterior), low/no VOC materials, and FSC (Forest Stewardship Council) certified tropical hardwoods.
The 4,900 square foot home has six bedrooms spread out over the main house, guest house and garage. Light, minimally finished floors sprawl throughout the expansive home; white painted woodwork and pale blue walls all lend to the beachy feel of this summer home. Located down an unpaved cul-de-sac in a quaint summertime neighborhood heading towards the bay from 6A in Brewster, the size of the home is impressive yet not intrusive to the surrounding homes and cottages that neighbor the property. Jill Neubauer of Jill Neubauer Architects thoughtfully designed the home with the help of lead architect Chris Harris to blend with the location. The small section of the home that is two stories is made up of a bunk room, a child’s bedroom, and a bathroom. Carefully selected and industrial-inspired lighting fixtures throughout the home add to the uniqueness of the design.
