My town of Duxbury, Massachusetts has its share of gorgeous antique and historic homes both big and small. But sometimes, a newer house is built which stands out in the crowd of gorgeous gems. This Duxbury Bay home designed and built by Hutker Architects in 2017 is truly a gem, not only for it’s amazing water views, but for how well the house captures and takes advantage of the natural surroundings.
The house and lot aren’t very big, but when your back yard looks like this, who needs much yard?
There is such a classic simplicity to this house, isn’t there?
Let’s step inside:
I like this little touch of glam hidden around the corner at the bar.
A small tv room sits off the living room. Now, I have to say, I’m a little surprised at the lack of crown molding in general. And I’m confused by the natural stain on the door frame and windows yet the baseboard moldings are painted blue.
One or the other people! It’s an easy fix either way. I’d probably paint the wood to match the blue as it works nicely with the grasscloth on the walls and the woven wood shades. The three different brown tones bug a little.
But really, with this view, who needs a tv room? Well, I guess when the sun goes down.
The dining area also manages to have a nice water view.
Joanna and Chip Gaines would approve of all the shiplap. At least shiplap works in this house in this setting. Though it’s a little too liberally applied in my personal opinion. I think they could have done without it in both insets below that are flanking the door into the tv room.
I do have to say that the decorating in this room isn’t to my taste. I don’t think it needs to be the standard ocean blues, but there’s just a little too much texture and pattern for a relatively small space. I’d prefer a calmer feel. But again, this is an easy fix.
A pretty bathroom and I like the black hardware on the door.
The upstairs hall features a lot of storage. I wish the hardware were black rather than brushed stainless.
Even I would wake up early with this view. Oh, who am I kidding? I’d be wearing a sleep mask and have the motorized black out shades down within a few weeks, sad to say. But breakfast in bed would be glorious, wouldn’t it??
I love the mirrors and light fixtures so much in this space. Elegant and modern, but simple as well.
This is a home office/dressing room/walk through space between the master bath and bedroom.
The bedrooms are fairly small, but they do all have great views!
And of course there has to be a private deck on the second floor.
