suddenly summer

If you live on the East Coast—in particular coastal New England—like I do, it seems that summer just one day appears from out of nowhere. Warm Atlantic sea breezes stir, the scent of honeysuckle wafts through the air, the marsh grass turns a deep green, pink rosa rugosa bloom along the dunes, and we head to our summer homes to make lasting memories with family and friends. In this issue, we feature just a few of the talented architects, and interior and landscape designers who bring clients’ visions of the perfect summer home to life. Workshop/APD architect Andrew Kotchen’s clients purchased a pie-shaped property with an old 1920s cottage overlooking Nantucket Harbor. The clients envisioned a home that would accommodate six-plus bedrooms, a guesthouse, an infinity pool, and outdoor entertaining areas. However,…

eagle’s nest

Longtime Duxbury, Massachusetts, residents Bill and Lynn Rice knew they wanted to live by the water when they downsized from their in-town residence. Fortune smiled on them when the ideal solution became available: a property right next to their son’s home on Eagle’s Nest Cove in South Duxbury. “It was all about location, location, location,” recalls Bill. “Three out of four sides have spectacular views of cove, bay, and marsh.” Their next move was building a home that suited their newly pared-down lifestyle and the neighborhood’s character: Eagle’s Nest is a vintage summer colony, reachable only by boat or bridge. “We had our eye on Polhemus Savery DaSilva for a while; their homes are always so creative, so clever,” says Lynn. “I fell in love with the interesting roofline on one…
