A Modern Home on Martha’s Vineyard
This modern home on Martha’s Vineyard is simple, sculptural, sexy, even. To further the appeal, it sits on a clearing surrounded by scrubby woods, native grasses, and waterviews, of course—of Watcha Pond and the Atlantic Ocean beyond.
The 5,740-square-foot passive solar home was designed by Robert Young with glass, glass, and more glass, to showcase its tranquil setting. The home was constructed by renowned island builder Andrew Flake. The particulars: an entertaining-friendly open plan with multiple sitting areas, beamed dining room, gourmet kitchen, home office, and library.
Sited away from the main wing are two master suites (one up and one down), two guest suites, and two guestrooms with a shared bath. The impressive materials list includes white oak floors, fir walls, mahogany windows, oversized bluestone, and pigmented concrete. With all of its curves, clean lines, and open arms (plus decks galore) this is a home that welcome and embraces.
The large and airy great room has multiple zones for entertaining.
A wall of windows makes the most of a the expansive lawn and breathtaking coastal views.
The light-filled kitchen is equipped for gourmet cooking.
Clean-lined architecture allows the beautiful scenery to take center stage.
The property is listed for $5,250,000 by Wallace & Co. Sotheby’s International Realty in Edgartown, MA. The MLS ID is 30169. For more information, visit the property website call (508) 627-3313.
