Brewster Landing, Brewster, MA

Brewster Landing is a mixed-income cottage development on Cape Cod, Massachusetts. The project consists of 28 homes on nine acres. Each home has two- to three-bedrooms and ranges from 1,350 to 1,600 square feet. Most homes are single-family residences, and some are duplexes. Homes are sited close together and arranged around a shared green. This amenity open space doubles as the leech field for a community septic system that includes I/A pretreatment. This combined approach to wastewater enables relatively dense development far from public sewer. This system’s exact specifications may not meet NH DES requirements.
