Modernist Wellfleet House Gets New Lease On Life

Wellfleet Cape Cod Modern homeThe Cape Cod Times reported that the Cape Cod National Seashore has announced a new 20 year lease on a "Cape Cod Modern" Wellfleet house to the non-profit Cape Cod Modern House Trust, for the purpose of preserving a valuable piece of architectural history. The house, designed by Charles Zehnder, is known as the Kugel-Gips House, and is located within the Cape Cod National Seashore. Go to the Cape Cod Times article to read the entire story.

I've been fascinated (maybe I'm getting old) by this style of homes, built mostly in the 1950's, but seems to have been popular into the 1970's. The Kugel-Gips House was built in 1970. Check out the Cape Cod Modern House Trust on their (very interesting) website.
