Facade-Off: Chatham Unibrow vs. Mashpee Space Station

New, 1 comment

Imagine you have around $1,450,000 to spend on a house and you've narrowed it down to two contemporaries, convinced the 1980s are the next retro trend to become all the rage. How do you make up your mind? The answer is simple: you shove them into a metaphorical cage and let them battle it out until one emerges victorious. It's time for Real Estate Deathmatch.

Move over mid-century modern, here we have two 3 bedroom contemporaries built in the 1980s. The cathedral ceilings, octogonal kitchen and half circle windows may seem dated now, but soon enough they'll be "vintage" and no doubt worthy of a post on Fuck Your Noguchi Coffee Table. In the meantime, where will you spend your imaginary $1.45M? The Chatham contemporary, located on Morris Island, was built in 1983 with a facade that reminds us of a unibrow. If you call the post and beam woodwork reclaimed, the place is instantly trendy, no need to wait. Over in Mashpee, on Popponesset Island, we find a waterfront contemporary built in 1986 with a somewhat space station facade. Cue the Battlestar Galactica, put a bird on it and you're all good.
