Paradise Cove, the name of this waterfront home on Cape Cod, has a sign at the entrance that reads: “The Way Life Should Be.”
It’s hard to argue with that!
Those turquoise board shutters with the starfish cutouts make me smile. The beachy theme is carried inside the house, too. Take a look!
A very nautical-looking bathroom with a barrel ceiling and wood-paneled walls:
I’m smitten with this adorable wall fireplace:

Architectural firm Polhemus Savery DaSilva designed Paradise Cove.
In their description of it, they write, “The house combines a classic expanded cape form with shingle style elements and decorative interior finishes common in coastal Maine, the owner’s previous home location.”
Gotta love the fun weather vane atop the garage:
“Shingled brackets, an eyebrow dormer and a ship’s stern balcony are at the center of the ocean cove facing back and surrounded by numerous windows to the view.”
In other words, the back of the house is as pretty as the front!
In this shot you can see how close they are to the water:
Thanks to Polhemus Savery DaSilva for sharing Paradise Cove with us.
