This Architecture Is Why People Covet Martha’s Vineyard Real Estate

Legendary island architect Patrick Ahearn’s work is featured in a stunning new book

Patrick Ahearn established himself as perhaps Martha’s Vineyard’s most prolific architect in a surprising way: In 1994, he began running ads in a local newspaper, the Vineyard Gazette, each featuring a sketch of a speculative “house of the week.” The advertising worked: In his first year, he picked up nearly 30 clients. In the decades since, he has completed some 200 projects on the island, ranging from small renovations to large new houses, as well as the restoration of numerous public and commercial buildings. And he has done well by doing good: His devotion to traditional architecture has helped strengthen the island’s visual identity. (No wonder he is chairman of the board of the Martha’s Vineyard Preservation Trust.)
