historic south coast cottage, mattapoisett, ma
Built in 1905, this seaside cottage and its carriage house had been remodeled many times over the last century. The owner wanted to restore the buildings to their original splendor, and create a setting for them that reflected a more contemporary lifestyle. CBA designed a granite slab-and-cobble parking court, a walled garden for alfresco dining, a quiet garden set into the hillside at the eastern end of the house, a front entrance walk of stepping stones, and an open lawn sloping from the house to the shore.
This residence was featured in the January 2014 issue of Landscape Architect and Specifier News.
