This house is in a new neighborhood called Dawn’s Light at The Pinehills in Plymouth, MA. It sits high on a historic east-facing ridge overlooking a wide expanse and long distant views. The woodlands, open countryside, and seascape of Plymouth, Cape Cod Bay, and Outer Cape Cod are all visible. The combination of big landscape viewed from above, big sky, and open ocean is unusual in Massachusetts, as it sits at one of the highest coastal view locations in the state. All the major rooms in the house open to the spectacular scene via simple ganged windows.
Manomet Ridge has a contemporary Shingle Style character. It is similar in layout to East to Avalon but different in street-facing details to reflect a woodland rather than seaside location.

Pinecone shaped cut-outs in simple painted board shutters at the front provide a delightful detail that further situates the home in its context. The woodland symbolism gives way at the view side to a more nautical influence represented by cable railings on the large deck and ships-prow-like knife edge hip roof at the screened-in porch wing.
Funds raised from tours of the home and events that took place at it far exceeded any fundraising records set previously in the program and provided over $80,000 to Boston Children’s Hospital. A spectacular place for a fortunate homeowner was provided as well!
