31 South Water Street

Edgartown Village Historic District, MA

Over the years, modifications stripped the historic value from this waterfront, clapboard-fronted, two-and-a-half-story, Federal Colonial former captain’s home, built between 1886 and 1898. Thanks to newly discovered late-nineteenth-century photographs of the house, a visual language could be developed for a restoration and extension that brought it back to life.

A re-poured foundation allowed for the creation of a walk-out lower level, invisible from the street but open to the harbor behind, and a new sunroom based on a porch from the archives, which now enjoys sweeping vistas. Antique floors and timber beams throughout lend historic authenticity, while expanses of windows celebrate water views.
