A century ago, this classic Provincetown home over -looking Cape Cod Bay was a distinctive residence in the historic Cape Cod seaport. The stucture’s rich nautical heritage dates back to its construction by a late nineteenth-century sea captain. With the help of architect Chris Brown, AIA, of b Architecture Studio in Melrose and the builders of North Eastham’s Cape Associates, Inc., the structure was recently transformed into one Cape Cod couple’s elegant,3,300-square-foot-dream home.
When homeowners El and Ro purchased the residence, they viewed its apartment-styled floor plan—part of a 1970s remodel—as out of sync with the home’s historic character. Brown’s reimagining of the home allowed two second-floor bedrooms to remain intact, while he added a fabulous new master bedroom and bathroom with spectacular views. “We carved in a private balcony,” he says, “that transitions the outdoor space into their bedroom and the master bath, bringing in sea-side breezes and beautiful views of Cape Cod Bay.”
