This isn’t your grandmother’s Cape Cod bungalow.
Unless, of course, your grandma is the effortlessly cool, well-traveled, always-has-a-good-story type. In that case, we imagine that 12 Lawrence Farm Road in Woods Hole is her special hideaway.
Although it sports many of the hallmark Cape Cod attributes — cedar shingles and a lush setting — the 1973 single-family in Woods Hole Village is bursting with contemporary flair that makes it stand out from the pack.
The home is just under 1,500 square feet but lives much bigger thanks to double-height, beamed cathedral ceilings and cleverly constructed built-ins throughout. Blending Japanese-inspired elements, mid-century modern simplicity, and Cape Cod rustic, the interior is lively, interesting, and inspiring.
While the interior stands up to being left bare, it would also provide a striking backdrop to an art lover’s collection. In fact, the home’s third level includes a lofted space perfect for a studio.
Officially, the home has two bedrooms — an oversized space currently divided to include a bedroom and family room with access to a deck, and a second bedroom on the home’s third level with a cute reading nook and bonus loft. There’s a full basement to boot.
Sitting pretty on nearly a quarter-acre lot, the home’s multiple outdoor spaces are surrounded by meticulously groomed landscaping, culminating in a serene Japanese garden out back.
