Cape Cod Time Special Report

For February 27, 2011

Bay Harbour, a new oceanfront colony in Provincetown, sports the fine art of Shingle Style, luxury,smart-wiring and a growing private beach.

In the last 30 years, nature's accretion added nearly 250 feet of beach seaward from the colony's 500 feet of shoreline, taking it from flood to C-zone rating. Replacing the old Tides Motel are eight grand cottages on eight expanding acres sited for sunrise to sunset-inspired days and four have sold.

Each home has a unique design and staggered placement to assure bay views for all. This home's Gambrel roofline is mirrored in its detached two-car garage, which has a second-floor artist studio and bathroom.

Classic interior accents begin in the home's foyer with an oval window and inlaid floor of slate and glass tiles. Reclaimed antique heart pine floors enrich most rooms and wall hues range from oyster, to sand and sea green.

The great room includes a granite fireplace, a white V-groove and beamed ceiling and a designer kitchen of custom cabinets with frosted glass doors to a backsplash of glazed crackle ceramic tiles. Sliding glass doors open to an ipe wood deck and bluestone terraces for panoramic ocean views and seaside dining.

Bathrooms have imported stone and glass tilework, a bubble jet soaking tub and seamless glass-enclosed showers. One master bedroom has a barrel-vaulted ceiling, broad balcony and octagonal, third-floor tower room with private deck.

"People want quality, fine detail, not boxy and they're willing to pay for that, even in down economic times," owner/developer Jason Stone said.
