Pond House

When our client purchased this property, it was the first time that this mid-century gem had changed hands since it was originally built. The house is distinguished as one of a number of classic but modest modern vacation and weekend houses designed for the Cape Cod landscape of kettle ponds and woods during the 40’s, 50’s and 60’s. It meshes a classic modern form with a tiny fishing cabinet built decades earlier. Perched on a rise overlooking a pond, the bones were perfect but the house needed numerous improvements to make the building physically sound again. Siding, roofing, gutters, insulation, upgraded windows & doors, and mechanical systems were all replaced to bring it up to date and to sustain it well into this new century. SPG Architects brightened and refreshed the house to compliment and enhance its already open and airy feel, but without losing sight of the spirit, intention, or architectonics of the original residence.
