Today’s Feature Friday is really a good one! I found Sandra on Instagram a few months ago and was immediately captivated by her quintessential gray shingled Cape Cod home. She has a blog, but it doesn’t have a lot on there yet, so I pulled information from her page to share with you. I asked her if she would let me share her home story with all of you and she agreed, sent me pics to use and so here you go. The story of Sandra’s Old Silver Shed home.
After growing up in Yonkers, NY, Sandra and her husband, Phil have lived all over the world from Switzerland, to California and decided to raise their 22 year old twins, Nathalie and Gianni, on Cape Cod.
Since Mark and I visited Cape Cod last Fall, I’ve been totally gaga over all the charming New England houses we saw up there. They are so charming, their beauty backlit by the gorgeous scenery and landscaping of the area. Sandra’s house is super charming as you will see below.
From Sandra’s blog, here’s how the house came to be. It’s new, but looks old and they rebuilt the original house on the same footprint as the old. You can read more about Sandra on her About page:
In 2004, we bought an old abandoned Folk Victorian on Cape Cod, situated on a bluff overlooking Old Silver Beach and the Herring River salt marsh. After discovering the house was in total disrepair, we dismantled it and saved all we could. This is the story of putting it back together and what I learned along the way.
Prepare to be wowed by Sandra’s house as you take this tour! It’s truly stunning inside and out. I’ll make note of the rooms you’re looking at but other than that, I’ll let you enjoy the beauty of Sandra’s home in Cape Cod.

Oh my goodness, the hydrangeas are just gorgeous in Cape Cod!
So the leaded glass transoms are just amazing.

I know you all enjoyed this Cape Cod home tour as much as I did! I hope you’ll visit Sandra’s blog at Old Silver Shed and also her Instagram. She’s got lots of followers over there!
Have a great weekend!

That is such a beautiful home!! So warm and inviting!! Love all the neutral colors through out!
Would you mind if I asked you where you purchased the amazing baskets on the porch? I love them!
Hi Susie, if you go over to Sandra’s Instagram you could ask her there. I don’t have any of that info.
This house is a mess. Some good, most bad. I honestly don’t understand paying millions for a property then DIYing the interiors. And there is no way in hell those people sit outside on that deck normally. Have you ever been to New England in the summer? The mosquitoes and black flies are so thick you can’t open your mouth to speak or they fly in. It is a nice property but my god they botched the inside.
