South Water Greek Revival Cottage

History in the Making

An Edgartown home conceals a surprisingly contemporary interior within its classic Martha’s Vineyard exterior.

Building a new home in a picture-postcard New England village like Edgartown on Martha’s Vineyard—where the oldest surviving house dates to 1672—requires a
profound respect for tradition. Patrick Ahearn knows this well. He estimates that about seventy percent of his Edgartown projects have been restorations. For the rest,
the architect developed a typology he calls “the urban island village compound.”
