Expansive windows open this Duxbury home to the idyllic vistas of Cape Cod Bay. The integrated electronics systems are designed to complement, rather than compete with the beauty of nature.
With an eye toward advanced technologies without invasive equipment to clutter the home, the A/V, lighting, security, and other systems are hidden or seamlessly incorporated. The final product? An innovative set of tools that does not detract from the style of the home.
Entertainment-Friendly Living Spaces
The fireplace wall in the family room is perfectly accented by a 75” Sony 4K TV, paired with a custom Leon LCR soundbar that’s designed to blend flawlessly with the size and finish of the entertainment system. A Totem Acoustic subwoofer is similarly camouflaged, thanks to in-wall installation. TV, streaming music, and lighting for this communal space are controlled with a handheld remote linked to the Control4 whole-house system.
The kitchen enjoys streaming music capabilities with discreet Sonance in-ceiling architectural speakers. Recessed ceiling lights and in-cabinet lighting offer dimmable illumination for function and ambiance.
Smart Controls Designed for Expansion
The audio, video, lighting, and networking components are easily managed with the intuitive Control4 home control platform. A centralized equipment rack is tucked away in a mechanical space on the second floor.
Unobtrusive elements, smart controls, and forward-thinking design add advanced technological capabilities and expansion potential to this elegant coastal property.
