Cape Cod, ocean front property, the sounds and breezes off Nantucket Sound, the sparkling glimmering light . An architect’s dream project…but there was a catch! The ocean can sometimes get crazy and flood. The house must stay five feet above existing grade to be safe. The neighbors across the street want to keep their lovely views, so the top of the ridge could not be higher than 28 feet. And, since this is a second house on a single lot, the total square footage could not exceed 2,000 sq. ft.
