A Modern Masterpiece. Logic, art and nature harmonize in a striking bluff-top dwelling overlooking Cape Cod Bay. Located in Truro on the Outer Cape, this 21st Century-Modern beach home is warm and comfortable…bold and avant-garde. Clad in luminous red cedar, the home’s horizontal, abstract lines embrace grand yet intimately scaled interiors that offer panoramic views of bay and coast. Graced by a natural palette of materials (limestone, honed granite, Tabu ash, walnut), accented by subtly rich colors and textures (chenille, faux suede), and powered by cutting-edge technology (Savant Home operating system), the home offers an unusual sense of comfort and well-being.

Superb views, private beach, unparalleled luxury. Harmonious master strokes of architecture, landscape and interior design have resulted in a bold and beautiful beach home that is in a class by itself.
