Edgartown Harbor, MA
Inspired by The Great Gatsby, this new homestead recalls the glamour, style, and grace of the 1920s even before one sees it. That’s due to a dramatic approach down a long curving drive, through a porte cochère, and into an arrival court. Only from here does the stately gambrel-roofed manor truly reveal itself.
Outdoor-living spaces expand the home, and, like the house itself, maximize coveted views of Edgartown Harbor and Chappaquiddick Island. A large covered porch, with second-floor terraces off the bedrooms above, spans the residence’s rear, while a tucked-away pool area creates a secluded enclave, apart from other alfresco entertaining areas and passing boat traffic.
