The Peter Kugel House is eligible for individual listing in the National Register of Historic Places under Criteria A and C at the local level for its associations with recreational residential development, cultivation of a progressive social network, and the dissemination of Modern style architecture on Outer Cape Cod during the mid-twentieth century. The building possesses significance under Criterion A in the areas of Recreation and Social History for its associations with the postwar, progressive intellectual community that commissioned the construction of single-family, Modern style vacation houses in the underdeveloped peripheries of the Outer Cape towns. The building possesses significance under Criterion C in the area of Architecture as the Frank Lloyd Wright-inspired residential work of locally prolific architect Charles Zehnder, who designed at least 36 Modern style houses on the Outer Cape.
