The legacy of this historic home in Harwich Port gets a unique update
Trowbridge refers to his father as an “overachiever,” and their Harwich Port home was his sanctuary to unwind from job stresses. Growing up, Trowbridge and his siblings never lacked for adventure on the Cape, with sailing classes, tennis lessons and the like. It is with extreme excitement that Trowbridge brings his Texan friends to experience this part of the country that they have never seen before. “I’m thrilled to be the host that can share with them such a special space,” he says.
The Trowbridges refer to this home as a “labor of love.” Each time they come in the summer, they leave the cottage better than it was before, and this project is the first that will really transition the space full steam ahead into the future. As Trowbridge puts it, “She’s a brand new ship.”
One hundred years in the making, this home is not “out with the old, in with the new,” but rather “respect the old, add the new.” It is the Trowbridges’ hope that they will have countless adventures that bring as much joy to them and their guests as all of Steve Trowbridge’s Cape Cod summers have brought him for the past 61 years.
