Water lovers, welcome to paradise: Walls of glass and rounded decks encompass this entire home, granting boundless views out to Cape Cod Bay. The beach is steps away, and the enclosed yard includes a heated, in-ground pool, an outdoor shower, and a hot tub. The home even harnesses the water that falls from the sky in a special way—chain-like Japanese rain drains suspend from beams at the top of the home all the way down to the ground, creating a soothing trickling effect during downfalls.

Shorter by one story, the guest cottage contains a bedroom with an ensuite, two curved studies covered in built-ins, and a roof deck. Stride along the elevated walkway, past the sunken steam tub with bay vistas to reach the main home. Inside the cedar-clad structure, the prominence of the commercial-grade glass sliders and windows becomes obvious. The overall design is understated and casual—hardwood floors, sleek ceiling fans, and small sections of beamed ceilings—letting the blue ocean waves play on a hypnotizing loop in the background. On the upper level, motorized shades slide across the windows at the push of a button, instantly casting the interior in twilight. While the views may do most of the talking, features such as a cavernous pantry off the kitchen, an elevator that reaches all three floors, and a semi-sheltered zen garden paved in pebbles make the contemporary residence just as much of a destination as the beach.
