Morse Street Compound Wins Bulfinch Award

Best in Show

Residential (Restoration, Renovation or Addition)

After owning the original cottage for a number of years, the homeowners acquired the property next door because they desired a much larger program for their expanding family. Morse Street Compound is an early 1800s Greek Revival cottage located within the Edgartown Village Historic District, therefore, the design had to go through a lengthy architectural review. Patrick Ahearn’s challenge was to increase the square footage by 75 percent, while maintaining the spirit and charm of the original cottage and to gain approval from the Historic District and the neighbors at large.

Morse Street Compound was featured in Period Homes, March 2016 issue.
