The Rural Vineyard Residence, outside of Edgartown Village in an area overlooking Eel Pond and the Harbor behind, was designed in the Gambrel Shingle style. The implied symmetry of the house celebrates the long views to the water. The open field of wild flowers and fieldstone walls serve as a podium for the intimately scaled grand seaside residence. The primary living spaces take advantage of the long views to the water, while the primary access to the property is through a newly created courtyard, with its pedestrian entry and carriage house wing. The west side of the court houses a free standing pool house cabana in the gambrel style as well as a hidden pool and garden. The interior finishes recall the grand shingle style homes of the turn of the last century but live in a more casual way as people wish to celebrate island life today.
