At the end of a cul-de-sac on a quiet side street, this romantic Vineyard homestead seems to be a summer cottage that was added onto over time. In reality, the distinctively romantic property is all-new construction, and deceives as a modest house which holds significant square footage within.
Classic details like an Edgartown fence, a herringbone brick walkway with a cobblestone apron, and bluestone steps are layered beneath a structure of white clapboard and cedar shingle to develop the narrative of a longstanding home. Nantucket dormers on the central cape provide both timeless exterior character and impressive interior volume while a central brick chimney adds overall verticality. Stepped-down gabled wings hold a surprising interior program featuring vaulted ceilings and reclaimed exposed beams. Plenty of beadboard adds to the property’s cottage feel.
At the back of the property, sets of French doors flanked in tall transoms provide definitive connection between the interior and exterior program, allowing the rear terrace and pool to become bustling spaces for summer living. A freestanding cabana thematically supports the main residence and provides a shaded getaway for guests. A separate carriage house was designed to look as if it had been a barn that had stood on the property which was repurposed for modern day. Just a short ride from South Beach, this quintessential summer home is now a place for island memories for years to come.
