The paint is lighter shades of blue, green, and white. The cabinets are the color of a sun-bleached seashell. The exterior is white-cedar shake with PVC trim. The result is a model home that beckons visitors to enjoy a Cape Cod summer in the Brewster Landing development, which is less than a mile from the beach.
A short paver walkway leads to a composite-decked farmer’s porch with a recessed front door. Exhausted from your day of sun and sand? The master suite is only steps from the front door, off a short hallway. Wash the sand off first in the master bath, which has a single vanity topped by marble (an upgrade from granite) and a tiled shower with a frameless-glass door. The bedroom looks out to the farmer’s porch and the development’s common.
The entire first floor is a study in natural light, compliments of a bevy of windows that starts in that hallway, where a clerestory design composed of a line of small rectangles is built high on the wall, and continues into the living and dining area, which offers a door to a patio. The dining area, sized for a six-person table, sits against a wall with bead-board wainscot topped with chair-rail shelving.
This space flows into a spacious kitchen with high-end stainless-steel appliances, extensive granite counters, solid-maple slow-close cabinets with brushed-nickel hardware, and a three-seat island with storage underneath. The sink is positioned underneath two windows looking out to conservation land. The kitchen has a pantry, and down a short hallway, there’s a half bath with a pedestal sink and a laundry area.
A wide set of oak stairs leads to the upper level, terminating at a landing/loft.
The bedrooms are at opposite ends of the hallway, and both feature walk-in closets and ceiling fans. They share a full bathroom with a tile floor and a Carrara marble double vanity.
There is a basement crawl space; a full one is an upgrade. Flooring on the first floor is a prefinished solid MooseWood maple, which is also an upgrade. The standard flooring is oak. The second floor is carpeted.
Brewster Landing is a 40B development on 9.4 acres, and seven of its 28 homes have been awarded through a lottery as affordable housing. The development features seven designs (carriage and town homes) — two- and three-bedroom configurations that range from 1,300 to 1,650 square feet. Prices go from $469,000 to $529,000, but can vary with upgrades. As of press time, eight homes were still available. This model, the Breakwater, has sold.
The turnaround time is four months, according to Mark Smith, owner of the development firm, Cape View, which holds open houses every Saturday and Sunday from noon to 2 p.m. For more information, go to www.brewsterlanding.com.
