Down a shady gravel lane, past the weathered gray-shingled
houses and scruffy landscape that define Outer Cape Cod, sits an
architectural surprise: a house finished in a golden-ruddy cedar, perched on
a slice of land between the road and a bluff that drops a dramatic 130 feet to
the beach below. As a visitor approaches the house, the arresting views of
Cape Cod Bay aren’t yet visible — but they are palpable.
a slab of live-edge black walnut
became a 14-foot custom dining
table (this page, top), designed by
Ray Forehand of interior design
firm Forehand + Lake. The lighting
fixtures, also custom-designed by
the interiors team, are made from
hammered steel and mica. The
kitchen cabinets are Tabu ash.
