Love Affair With a Silver-Shingled Waterfront Home on Cape Cod, Massachusetts


(ABOVE) Just before sunset, Cape Cod.

The architecture and gardens of this home look straight out of a film set; they are so beautiful! I discovered it on Instagram recently, and thought you would enjoy seeing it, too.

What I show here is a tiny sampling of the many images of the house, grounds, and interior featured on the site by the homeowner, Sandra M. Cavallo. Please visit @theoldsilvershed for more.
