Building on Hopper Landscape

This article is more than 12 years old.

A Cape Cod planning agency has agreed to allow a couple to build a home on land made famous by painter Edward Hopper.

Donald and Andrea Kline say they want to build a 65-hundred square foot house next door to Hopper's former home.

Opponents had argued that the house, which overlooks Cape Cod Bay, would alter the ocean views depicted in Hopper's paintings.

Members of the group Friends of the Hopper Landscape say they're extremely disappointed with the ruling, which allows the Klines to build, although with some restrictions.

Holt says the Friends group may appeal to a zoning board, but does not have the funds to file a lawsuit.
