Sweeping Ocean Vistas at The Pinehills’ Newest Neighborhood Dawn’s Light

Custom, Coastal Homes Overlooking Cape Cod Bay

August 25, 2016 Homes & Builders, Press Releases


Built on one of the highest coastal elevations from Mount Desert Island, Maine to North Carolina, the Dawn’s Light neighborhood has breathtaking views of Cape Cod Bay over rolling hills of pine and oak. The fifteen custom homes in this ridge-top neighborhood are being designed and built by renowned, Cape Cod-based, Polhemus Savery DaSilva Architects Builders (PSD).

Nationally recognized for their distinctive architectural design and exceptional craftsmanship, PSD thrives in the coastal New England setting. “It is exciting to be working in the first ocean view neighborhood of The Pinehills, a community where great value is placed on environment and craftsmanship. Our goal with Dawn’s Light is to design and build homes that complement the location’s natural, wooded hills and ridge-top coastal views,” says Aaron Polhemus, President of PSD. “We are enjoying this collaboration with The Pinehills.”

The homes at Dawn’s Light will combine the spirit of their surroundings with the classic character of historic coastal New England shingle-style structures, as illustrated by the recently completed first home in the neighborhood. The home’s front elevation highlights the woodland feel of the area, with pinecone cut-outs in its shutters and columns that were inspired by tree trunks and branches. The back of the house is sited to take advantage of the panoramic view with an expansive deck, screened-in porch and ground-level outdoor living and yard spaces.

Crafted with care and precision, this home offers a refined but casual exterior and similarly sophisticated interiors that capture views high above the treetops out to the expanse of Cape Cod Bay. Open, contemporary living spaces are ideal for social and family interaction and look out to the spectacular view, while cozy spaces are set up for retreat. The finished living space covers three levels connected by a common open staircase. Light and spaciousness are emphasized by a large window and cathedral ceiling in this multi-story space. Living, dining and kitchen spaces are open to one another. Master suites on both the first and second floors, plus one additional bedroom, all face the view of Cape Cod Bay. Spectacular sunrises begin the all-day light in the house, while the west-facing entry, with its large, high window, ensures light streams deep into the house as the sun sets.

“Dawn’s Light will be a true showpiece at The Pinehills,” says Tony Green, Managing Partner for Pinehills LLC. “To be able to offer ocean views along with magnificent homes created with the skill and craftsmanship that PSD is known for is something we are very proud of. And their philosophy of designing homes that work with their natural surroundings fully mirrors our own philosophy when we initially designed The Pinehills.”

The Pinehills is one of the country’s great success stories. As the biggest new home community in Massachusetts and the Northeast, and among the largest in the nation, The Pinehills’ current assessed value exceeds $1 billion. When the last home is complete, there will be 3,065 homes at The Pinehills.
