‘Hundred Mile House’, a recently completed modernist home in Wellfleet, MA is available for weekly rentals. The design was inspired by the nearby historic modernist homes and other buildings designed in the ‘40s and ‘50s by Breuer, Saltonstall, Thompson, and Gropius, and also by the common concrete sea walls that protect the fragile sandy shores of Cape Cod. This is a special place, designed to inspire. Go to www.hundredmile.house for details about the design and other projects by Duane Smith.
The home is located on a quiet road in the Pleasant Point neighborhood of Wellfleet. Drummer Cove salt water marsh is directly across the road. It’s a five-minute walk to the beach and boat landing at Pleasant Point, and one mile to the National Seashore and LeCount Hollow beach on the Atlantic Ocean. Easily walk or bike to the convenience store, liquor store, bakery, post office, bike rental, sandwich shops, and more. It’s less than a 10 minute drive to fresh water ponds, the drive-in theater, cinemas, flea market, tennis courts, and Wellfleet town center.
Upper Level: The home’s main living area is on the top floor, surrounded by 10-foot-high windows with views of the pine and oak trees, and the serene Drummer Cove beyond. Double-width glass doors from the living room open onto a mahogany deck; the perfect spot for enjoying your morning coffee, afternoon cocktails, or stargazing. The living area is filled with comfortable, contemporary furniture. The dining room has seating for 8, and a chalkboard wall to keep everyone busy with after-dinner, wine-enhanced doodles.
Everyone can be involved in meal prep around the 4x10 foot kitchen island. Chefs will love the Thermador Professional 36” gas range with built-in grill, 36” refrigerator, and Fischer-Paykel double-drawer dishwasher. At your disposal are a coffee press, toaster, food processor, pasta roller, and most common cooking utensils, spices, etc.
Also upstairs is a half bath, built-in stereo system, and a selection of books and games to keep everyone entertained.
Lower Level: The bedroom, studio and main bathroom are on the lower level, each with its own glass doors that open onto an enclosed courtyard filled with living bamboo and mahogany platforms, perfect for private midnight star-gazing or mid-day sunning. The bedroom has a queen bed, a twin-sized daybed, and walk-in closet. The bedroom is equipped with a 22' TV and stereo system. The studio has a large worktable and a 3x12’ skylight.
The main bathroom has double sinks, a modern cast-iron tub big enough for two, a 4x8’ shower with Kohler rain-shower head and mahogany flooring, and a door to the courtyard for a private, relaxing dry-off in the sun. Also on the lower level is another half bath and a full-size washer and dryer.
