Slide down the lazy Bumps River just short of its confluence with Scudder Bay near Osterville on Cape Cod and on the starboard bank is a fine house in three acres of rolling lawn and fine specimen trees. You can sneak a peek from the river although it is more difficult to see from the road.
What sets this home apart is the seamless transformation from traditional Cape Cod home to more contemporary Cape Cod showpiece.
The interior is full of signature craftsmanship. Just look at the amazing Chippendale-style chinoiserie staircase – the master carpenter who built it may modestly say that it was all in a day’s work, but I think it is genius.
But it is of course the setting here which is so very thrilling. An expansive paved terrace provides a wonderful amenity for entertaining or just sitting with a book and occasionally watching that lazy river slipping by towards the Atlantic Ocean.
This place is in a world of its own. But when the time comes to leave that special place for a while then it is only a short drive to the wonderful world of Osterville. There you have it. The best of both worlds.
