This stunning oceanfront home in South Dartmouth, Massachusetts, was designed to take advantage of the site and accommodate the homeowners’ desire for entertaining, aging in place, and a comfortable, low carbon lifestyle. While the street-side entrance is reserved and private, the generously glazed western façade offers magnificent views of the ocean from all the primary living spaces.
In addition to amenities such as multiple outdoor living areas, swimming pool, and a master suite with a private roof deck and outdoor shower, this modern home also features a super-tight building envelope and well-designed mechanical systems for optimal thermal comfort and exceptionally low energy consumption. A rooftop photovoltaic system produces as much as energy as the home consumes, making it almost net zero. Accessible design features such as an elevator to connect the three floors of the home and wide passageways ensure the homeowners can live here as long as they wish.
The design received a PRISM Gold Award for Best Single Family Home in 2018.
