Retreat on Martha's Vineyard

Good morning everyone! Today we will have a look at a beautiful remodeled and expanded house on Martha’s Vineyard. I just posted the after pictures but if you'd like to see the before ones just go here.

Can you spot the colt?

The entrance hall with a floor of limestone and terra-cotta.

The living room, made symmetrical with the addition of a doorway in the fireplace wall, received a Colonial Revival carved mantel and paneling.

Lots of natural light streams into the kitchen.

Part of the new two-story addition, the study has a circa 1790 French mantel and trumeau, from John Rosselli. Access to the room is provided by a secret passage below the stair or from the library via the terrace.

The second-floor landing, just off the master bedroom, is illuminated by a skylight and a clerestory.

In the master bedroom, detailed millwork gives the space architectural distinction. I like the bunny rabbits door stoppers.

At the rear elevation, French doors open the house to private decks and the common space of the garden terrace

Surrounded by gardens, the expanded, redesigned poolhouse—the design of which echoes that of the house—has a screen porch that overlooks the pool.

  1. Beautiful porchies.

  2. Great post! When I saw the first picture, I immediately thought it was from Stern! He is one of my favorite architects!
    Thank you so much for sharing!
