Sweet serenity awaits at this seaside escape.The property’s outdoor living space is the ideal spot for summer soirees
Lined with Greek Revival homes, one Chatham village street is captivating from every angle. However, the true oasis is found at a property designed and constructed by Polhemus Savery DaSilva Architects Builders (PSD, psdab.com). On the compound, a newly-built guesthouse sits before the ideal summer escape (also recently completed) with every amenity one could desire. “At the Patience property, two vernacular Greek-revival houses are related by proportion and character. They feel right sitting proudly on a rise in the classic, and classical, village center,” says PSD design principal John R. DaSilva. “The outdoor spaces focus on functional needs—parking and walkway access between the two houses—as well as pleasure—play space in the yard, pool time, and entertaining by the fire pit on the patio.” Bluestone pavers serve as a foundation for the space, lining the poured gunite, pebble sheen FInished pool, and Warming Trends (warming-trends. com) gas fire pit with fire glass. Fieldstone walls enclose the outdoor living area, which was pristinely designed by Gregory Lombardi Design (lombardidesign.com).
A maiz rattan-wrapped chandelier by Mecox completes the guesthouse’s dining area.
Further amplifying the Cape Cod coastal aesthetic is the guesthouse’s white cedar siding and red cedar roof. Inside, the space features a modern touch by SLC Interiors (slcinteriors.com). Glide across six-inch antique reclaimed heart pine FLooring into the three-bed, 3 ½-bath haven. Details like a grooved ceiling coated in Benjamin Moore’s (benjaminmoore.com) bright Distant Grey amplify the natural light, while touches of rattan and blue add a pop of seaside elegance.
