Edgartown Martha’s Vineyard

The Martha’s Vineyard property was such a historic home, even hearing Frederick Douglass speak over the years, but it was dated, in disrepair, and needed the additional space a fourth bedroom could bring.

Such a historic home required special tributes to its past. The yellow stairs were an homage to the homeowner’s father’s yellow Porsche and the red brick is a nod to the structure’s history as an old schoolhouse where the old basement housed a glazed brick oven for cooking.

A creative use of space in the attic allowed us to add an additional bedroom accessible by spiral stairs in the center of the house.

"We kept the beauty of the original floors and used high-gloss paint on the ceilings to reflect its unique patterns."
