This lovely home was built by a New Hampshire family in the 1980's who had regularly vacationed on Cape Cod when they were young children. The owners are the family's, adult siblings, who I believe, are now in their 70's. Although fully modernized, crossing the peninsula's private causeway, entering "the Island" and stepping into the home is like going back to a bygone, much simpler era.
The architectural style was inspired by renown New Hampshire builders. The home was, with great intention, built so each sibling and their children, the cousins, would have a wing. It's very much like a family vacation compound—all under one roof—on this incredibly private island, where nature has been preserved with utmost care over many generations.
Being at the property immediately slows you down and connects you to nature. Roads are very narrow, the tree canopy is dense and the water views are breathtaking. While the very special environment makes you feel privileged to be there, it does not feel at all ostentatious, as do, so many other "upscale" areas of the Cape. The property owners refer to themselves as "Islanders".
