House on the Bluff
A Collaborative Transformation
SV Design reinvented a tired, seaside 80’s deck house into a timeless, modern masterpiece. Inspired by its puzzling layout, the owners and design team decided to push the envelope by opening walls and ceilings to transform 2,400 square-feet into a comfortable home for entertaining, living and working. The finished result is polished but casual.
Finishes and furnishings were artfully selected and placed within a sophisticated, muted palette; walking in from the beach and lounging were considered throughout the project’s design. The wall to ceiling glass coupled with layers of open-air balconies allows one to feel the experience of walking along a horizon of water. The architects and interior designers at SV Design worked with this home’s owners to clear out the inside, open the house to the outside and masterfully maximize storage and sleeping nooks. The furnishings were inspired by classic mid-century modern – utilizing walnut, navy, tans and muted blues and greens throughout the home. A custom dining table, by Wellfleet Artist Jeff Soderbergh, accompanies a built-in dining seat with a back that becomes a decorative half wall, which flows into a wet bar tucked into a corner of the living room.
Existing concrete floors were polished for minimal maintenance and easy sweeping away of sand. The basement utility space was transformed into a custom, climate-controlled wine storage area, laundry, and mudroom. Custom bunks were strategically located throughout the open lofts – with curtains for privacy. A cedar hot tub was tucked into a private balcony off the primary bedroom. Additional features include solar panels and Tesla battery chargers, Sub-Zero and Wolf appliances, and local artwork throughout.
