Set on over 1.5 acres of land leading out to Namskaket Marsh, and a short walk from picturesque Rock Harbor, the location of this Cape Cod home is enough to make it a stand out, but it’s the unique design details that truly exceed expectations. “This home has pronounced contemporary decor, which is not the norm for Cape Cod,” says listing agent Marc Norgeot. “The exterior belies what the buyer finds on the interior,” Norgeot says.

On the first floor, the entry includes spacious double closets and and an informal mudroom with a storage wall designed to keep footwear and coats in their place, yet ready for outdoor adventures. The open living and dining area has hardwood flooring and custom built-ins for extra organization, and the space features an industrial steel ceiling beam—all set against large patio windows that bring in natural light. In the kitchen, cathedral ceilings,  granite countertops and whimsical light fixtures complete the design.

The home includes a first floor master bedroom and additional sleeping quarters on the second floor, where each bedroom has a private bath.

Other property features include a family room fireplace, a basement, which was converted into a home-gym, an outdoor shower, and a large patio space.
