House of the week

This hot weather has me dreaming of seaside homes. Our friends have a summer home in a tiny town called Mattapoissett –  a quaint and beautiful town with cutest little beach. It doesn’t pack in crowds like popular destinations on the Cape Cod and it’s much closer that Cape, also, about 2 hour drive from Fairfield County. There are homes for sale for 300-400 000 close the beach or you can buy move in ready houses with amazing water views like this house.

4 beds, 3.5 baths, almost 4000 sq ft and a small yard but you are right on the water. $1,850,000 and taxes are 14.628. Listing can be found here.

Front of the house is rather blah, dark shutters would look fantastic and wake this house up a bit.

Love the interiors, crisp and modern but wood warms it up. Limestone floors are heated!

The countertop thickness is cray-cray. Love the mix of old and new.
