North Truro, MA

This beautiful home overlooks Provincetown Harbor and is used primarily as a summer house. Originally designed to be slightly larger, strict zoning regulations caused three vital feet to be lost from the upper part of the house, while the porch had to be designed with 45-degree angles in order to satisfy compliance. And, to further complicate matters, the house is set 12-feet down a hill from the street.

Despite these complications, the house was transformed into a magnificent showcase for the homeowner's large and beautiful art collection. The downstairs walls are 10-feet high which allows for the hanging of paintings above one another, while the glazed windows and shady porch provide much-needed protection. A balcony at the rear of the house provides a glorious view of the harbor, and the roof and siding are all done in beautiful cedar.
