Luxury Outlook 2022
An ambitious exploration into high-end residential markets across the globe.
For those in the know, the timeless coastal village of Osterville has long been a destination for living the quintessential Cape Cod life. Denizens of its shady, breezy lanes and enduring shingled homes enjoy a charming Main Street, fashionable shops, intriguing galleries, fine restaurants, and the amenities of two country clubs. This timeless 5,400-square-foot residence on the shore of North Bay is a luxurious “home base” for reveling in all that the area offers—including the waters of Nantucket Sound, over which its rare deepwater dock extends.

Combining classic Cape Cod architectural elements—among them a wood-shingled façade and a gambrel roof—with stylish modern interiors, clean lines, and chic finishes in soothing organic hues, the 5,400-square-foot home features a versatile floor plan ideal for relaxed coastal living and entertaining. On the main level are sophisticated living and dining rooms and a spacious kitchen with an island, a butler’s pantry with wine storage, and appliances from Wolf, Sub-Zero, Thermador, and Bosch. An inviting family room on the upper level is equipped with useful built-ins and gazes out at the water.
For more private moments, two guest suites enjoy the convenience of being located on the main level, while the four second-floor bedrooms include two sizeable owner’s suites with walk-in closets and well-appointed baths. Ceilings are vaulted and airy, and wide-plank engineered oak floors flow throughout. Comfort and convenience have been carefully attended to, from dual mudrooms and a laundry room on each floor to systems controlling music and temperature.
The home feels fully in harmony with its natural surroundings. Windows throughout are sized and positioned to capture idyllic views—of North Bay, a hole on the course of the Wianno Club, two marinas, and the dazzling rising and setting of the sun. Two decks extend the options for living and entertaining to the outdoors—as do an infinity-edge pool and spa surrounded by hand-chiseled granite and tumbled marble, a sunken patio with a fire pit, a dining pergola with an outdoor kitchen, and a cabana with a fireplace. Vibrant landscaping, a private sandy beach with its own shellfish beds, and the pièce de resistance—a new 130-foot pier with a floating motorboat dock—complete a picture befitting a postcard sent to friends far and wide from one of the world’s most alluring and desirable destinations.
