South Summer Street Pool House

Edgartown Village Historic District, MA

Together with a main house and a privet hedge, this combined cabana, carriage house, and guest suite makes the most of its narrow lot. It helps form a private outdoor oasis for the property’s pool, bluestone terrace, and gardens—essentially an outdoor room that’s perfect for alfresco entertaining.

On its street side, the building opens to the road with two carriage house–style doors. Above, the guest suite includes a cozy, private bedroom. The garden-facing cabana side, meanwhile, features white-painted beadboard walls and brick floors, as well as a pergola, which provides shade and seamlessly connects the cabana to the pool.
