P.S.

RECOMMENDED SUMMER READING

ot only do the Cape and islands offer the perfect backdrop for our favorite summer activities, for those artistically inclined, the region has always held a special appeal. My own sketchbooks are a record of Cape Cod vacations over the years, and lately I’ve been drawn to the stories of the free spirits who made these ocean enclaves their home. I’m looking forward to returning to Greater Light on Nantucket, the former summer home of sisters Gertrude and Hanna Monaghan, now maintained by the Nantucket Historical Association. The story goes that, in 1929, the artistic and adventurous pair from Philadelphia, having summered on the island for several seasons, decided to follow a herd of cows up Main Street… and found themselves at a massive barn. Struck by inspiration and eager for a project, they purchased the barn and transformed it into an art studio and repository for their considerable collection of architectural ephemera. Today, the barn and gardens are open to the public. It’s the ideal spot for contemplation and soaking up some creative energy. Several miles away and a couple of decades earlier, a similarly spirited woman by the name of Mary Heaton Vorse made Provincetown her home after a vacation visit. Vorse, a journalist and mother of young children, found in Provincetown a tight-knit community of artists and “fellow outsiders” who fed her intellectual curiosity and welcomed her family. Her home became a gathering place for writers, poets, and playwrights. In 2018, interior designer Ken Fulk purchased the house from Vorse’s descendants and meticulously restored it with the goal of honoring its place in Provincetown’s cultural history. True to Fulk’s vision and in continuation of the vibrant 2020 opening season, the house will be packed with culture again this summer. In addition to hosting artist residencies, expect movie nights in the courtyard benefiting the Provincetown Film Society, curated art exhibits, and the 4th annual Provincetown American Playwright Awards. The free spirit lives on.

icardo Rodriguez and Michael Kelley had been visiting Provincetown for decades when they decided it was time to invest in a property of their own. That property turned out to be the first one they toured. “It was love at first sight,” says Rodriguez of the approximately 1,000-squarefoot condominium that sits right on the beach. “It has a beautiful relationship to the water—it’s like you’re on a boat.”

TOP TO BOTTOM: The couple forewent any major reconstruction, instead sprucing up interiors with paint, furnishings, and art, while orienting the layout around the generous ocean views. A commissioned painting of the living room by regional artist Adam O'Day helps drive the tone and hues for the interior styling.

INTERIOR DESIGN:

Alina Wolhardt, Wolf in Sheep Design

Rodriguez, who works in real estate, says he instinctually began considering ways they could remodel the condo. But the Boston-based couple closed on the purchase during summer and quickly realized they didn’t want to waste any time on renovations. They also liked that the existing space captured Provincetown’s artsy, casual vibe. Still, the home needed a solid refresh. So instead of a whole-house overhaul, the couple collaborated with friend and interior designer Alina Wolhardt to enliven indoor and outdoor spaces with furnishings and art. “It looked worn out and needed love again,” says Wolhardt, founder of Bostonbased Wolf in Sheep Design and one of New England Home’s 2020 5 Under 40 winners. The trio decided to refinish floors and revive

rooms with paint, but some quirky touches, such as the bathroom’s pink tile and the kitchen’s cobalt-blue countertops, were left intact as much for utility as they were an homage to the history of the place. Rodriguez had commissioned a painting of the living room’s wall of windows, which became the inspiration for the interior decor. Art—the couple collects—and furnishings add color, flair, and function throughout. The living area flows seamlessly to the deck, where at high tide the water rises halfway up the stairs leading to the beach. During the process of creating a getaway purpose-built for appreciating family,

friends, and fun, the home earned an apt moniker, the Love Shack. “It’s beautiful, but it’s not precious,” says Rodriguez, who describes the retreat as a place for “wet bathing suits, sand on the floor, and seashells everywhere.” “They didn’t want a fancy house. They wanted a place that was quintessentially P-town,” says Wolhardt. “We didn’t want to lose that essence of what makes this place special.” EDITOR'S NOTE: For details, see Resources.

t his longtime clients’ Nantucket home, designer Kevin Isbell transformed a dated house into a unique retreat by using some of his tried-and-true design principles. Built in the 1990s, the structure had a number of outmoded architectural features. “We got rid of the tired concepts,” says Isbell, who is based out of Los Angeles, California, but boasts clients all over the globe. “It was really a cosmetic uplift.” That uplift is best evident in the primary bedroom, which gives a subtle nod to its island location and blends the very best of old and new. kevinisbell.com

A sideboard now serves as dresser, providing clothes storage.

ON LAYERING: To work in one-of-a-kind pieces from different eras and styles, Isbell drew upon the island’s history as a global trading and whaling port, where goods would come back with sailors after their extended trips around the world. “I like to bring in those more unique pieces,” he says. “It gave me a lot of liberties to mix things here.” Case in point: the mélange of vintage wicker pieces, high-gloss white finishes on new pieces, and “brown wood” antiques all add gravitas and balance.

ON COLOR: “The room gets great light,” says Isbell, “so it could handle this strong color. Plus, a lot of light tones temper the magnitude of the green.” And while the contractors may have been surprised by the choice of such a bold color, the homeowners were all in. “They understand me, and they understood the vision,” Isbell says.

“I just wanted something quirky,” says Isbell.

ON PATTERN: What could have been a “sweet” chintz feels of the moment with its apple-green and hard-topinpoint blue. “It’s like aqua and teal had a baby,” Isbell says of the colors on the Lisa Fine Textiles fabric. The pattern also harkens to the island’s horticultural history, from the rose-colored cottages to the blowsy hydrangeas that pepper summer gardens. The fabric is a fresh take on more traditional (and expected) coastal blue-and-white motifs. “Right outside the doors is the ocean,” says Isbell. “Why do I need to keep referring to the nautical-ness of the location when you can look out the window and know exactly where you are?”

haven for family. That’s how the owners of a ten-acre private island on Cape Cod describe their sanctuary. Landscape architect Michael Coutu states it a bit more candidly: “I’ve been working on Cape Cod for forty years, and this is one of the nicest, most unique properties I’ve seen.”

CI21 Outside Interest_Fin.indd 54

Of course, it didn’t start out that way. When the Boston-based couple originally saw the land, from the water, in 2014, a thick forest of pine and oak trees along with a poorly sited home didn’t make the best first impression. “It was going to take a lot of vision and energy,” recalls the wife. They reached out to builder James Bowes, who had built the

For this secluded family paradise on a private Cape Cod island, landscape architect Michael Coutu laid two shades of granite paving around the pool and spa. The granite keeps feet cool during the heat of summer. “It has that barefoot-on-the-island feeling,” says Coutu.

family’s previous vacation home. Bowes assembled a team of professionals that included Coutu, principal at Sudbury Design Group. Coutu worked with the Barnstable Conservation Commission to ensure the protection of the surrounding waterways; a fifty-foot buffer of native trees and plants encircling the island does the job. The team retained as many trees as possible and planted additional ones to create what Coutu calls “view corridors” from the house and recreation spaces. On approach, a gravel driveway first passes by a barn and tennis and basketball courts as it slowly climbs to TOP TO BOTTOM: Coutu’s team planted an abundance of hydrangeas and roses in what he refers to as “Cape Cod summer colors.” The home boasts two grilling areas, one on the patio and a second at the pool house, where a New England Fieldstone fireplace provides warmth after the sun sets.

Along the way, lush expanses of lawn and groves of trees enticingly reveal glimpses of the water and, finally, the home itself, which includes a pool, spa, pool house, outdoor kitchen, two grilling areas, and two outdoor showers. A private beach and dock allow for boating, kayaking, paddleboarding, swimming, and sunbathing. Coutu’s team added understory plantings with a focus on perennials, grasses, lowbush blueberries, hollies, hydrangeas, and roses. “It’s at once sophisticated and wild,” says Coutu. “Transitioning the home to the natural beauty of the island was key.” So was capturing the homeowners’

casual style. “You approach the house from the side, and along the way, you’re more and more surprised by what you see,” says the husband. “It feels very natural.” His wife agrees. “It feels subtle, not grandiose, and that’s much more our style.”

TOP TO BOTTOM: The home’s patio is a favorite spot for entertaining; “A regular night in the summer has us with ten-plus around the dinner table,” says the wife. Extensive lawns offer ample room for rambunctious kids—and their watchful parents; native plants provide a buffer between the grass and the waterways. Sudbury Design Group created a putting green, replete with water views.

After selling the Hob Knob Inn in 2015, White cruised island backroads like a birder on a big day, seeking her next project. But a lofty perch, along with some sage guidance from her wife, Jan Smith, beckoned White to the shores of Vineyard Haven. Smith knew by the third visit to the wooded lot that they should be building their dream home there rather than staying put in their enviable in-town compound in Edgartown. “If you’re going to live on an island, you should be able to see the water,” reasons Smith. Still, it took her nearly six months to persuade White to a dream-home do-over. It was the Vineyard Sound view that finally conquered White’s reluctance to leave what she thought was the center of her universe. Far from the historic dictates of Edgartown, the couple embraced a more contemporary look, turning to architect and family friend Gregory Koester. Shingle style from the front, the house recalls area coastal homes, but the back opens up with a stone-steel-glass exterior that shakes off any attempts to define it. Inside, working with New York interior

polished concrete floors. Opposite a wine cellar, White’s grotto-like, stone-walled office sits just off the rattan-kitted covered porch. “It’s certainly a different home than Maggie has ever built for herself or anyone else,” says Southern. White, who thought she’d already built her dream home in Edgartown, hasn’t looked back. “Jan and I have drinks on the deck in the evening, and I just look at her and say, ‘Who lives here?’ ” EDITOR’S NOTE: For details, see Resources.

Following the Flowers Libby Ellis finds beauty in all of life’s stages.

I

BY NATHANIEL READE

’m not saying I had any reason to mistrust Libby Ellis, but when I first saw her pictures of flowers, I did not believe that they were photographs.

Hanging in Schule Chapel on Martha’s Vineyard, Ellis’s images of cosmos flowers look more like nineteenth-century etchings or the ink-brush paintings of some ancient Zen master. That’s in part because Ellis photographs her flowers in black and white, but also because she has managed to create an other-worldly look that is unique, loaded with emotion, and strangely comforting. Ellis, a bubbly person in a butterfly face mask, grew up in the Midwest and California. She first moved to Martha’s Vineyard decades ago, quite literally after closing her eyes and pointing at a map. She says she

chose to make her portraits of flowers in black and white because it allows her to focus more on the shapes, moods, forms, and feelings. “When you take away color, you can see things you might have otherwise missed,” she says. Ellis deliberately uses only the barest ingredients—an SLR camera, a paper backdrop, natural light—without any manipulation by computer, “only flowers I meet on the ground.” She doesn’t even arrange them; she lets them arrange themselves. Ellis denies she’s anything other than a vehicle—“I just follow the flowers,” she says—but the meditative relationship she develops with her subjects produces images

that are more than decorative: they speak about life, in all its strange stages. In one of my favorites, a cosmos has gone soft and droopy like a funeral shroud, while its partner is open and alert, and unopened buds wait in the wings. At a time when mortality is heavy on our minds, these images remind us that the value of life is not all in youth and blooming. Looked at from the right angle, the most seemingly insignificant things have worth— even a wilted bloom or a gnarled seedpod. Libby Ellis’s flowers don’t judge or fear their own passing; they just do what they do, and it’s beautiful.

Architect Thomas Catalano designed (from left to right) a guesthouse, a two-story building with a lounge on the first floor and an office above, a pool cabana, and the main house.

WHEN THE DESIGN PROFESSIONALS who worked on this Osterville home talk about it, the word easy comes up a lot. Not that the project was simple. Architect Thomas Catalano, interior designer Manuel de Santaren, landscape architect David Hawk, and builder Kenneth Vona (who brought the whole team together) had to resolve plenty of complex issues on their way to achieving the stylish result.

“I DIDN’T WANT ANY COMPETITION BETWEEN THE INSIDE AND THE OUTDOOR LANDSCAPE AND SEASCAPE.” —Interior designer Manuel de Santaren

But they all agree that their clients, a California couple with New England roots, wanted a home where they and their two teenage daughters could spend carefree summers. When the couple bought the property, a not-quite-two-acre stretch on a peninsula with water on three sides, it held a Spanish colonial revival that everyone agreed should be replaced. But before Catalano could think about design, he had to make sure a new house would be around for the generations to

follow. “The site was prone to flooding,” he says. “Our client was very clear that we needed to come up with a sustainable design that would work now, and that, when he wanted to give his house to his daughters in twenty or thirty years, wouldn’t be underwater.” Once the property’s grade had been raised enough to account for higher sea levels and fortified on three sides with a low retaining wall, Catalano designed the structures—main house, guesthouse, pool cabana, and a building with

“This is not a display kitchen by any stretch,” says interior designer Manuel de Santaren about the well-used kitchen. Leathered quartzite countertops stand up to hot pans and sharp knives, while the oak cabinetry’s simple profile and clear finish make for easy cleaning. FACING PAGE: The dining room is paneled with cerused, rift-sawn white oak.

an entertaining space on the first floor and an office above—with longevity in mind. Lower-level utility spaces are built to tolerate flooding. “Water can flow in and out without causing damage,” the architect says. He chose western red cedar for shingles and roofing for its ability to stand up to salty air and high winds with little maintenance.

Layered over all that practicality is the visible part of Catalano’s magic, a playful take on the classic Cape Cod style rife with charming details inside and out. To take advantage of the peninsula’s 200-degree water views, the main house curves gently, ushering in natural light from dawn to dusk. “The house follows the sun,” Catalano says.

Landscape architect Hawk’s plan was all about connecting spaces. “Tom artfully created a wonderful vocabulary of architecture,” he says. “It’s almost a little village that wraps around the pool.” Hawk introduced patios, decks, terraces, meandering walkways, swaths of lawn, and borders and beds of native plants and Cape Cod classics like hydrangeas

The cupola-topped pool cabana sports a full outdoor kitchen that gets as much use in the summertime as its indoor counterpart. Serious swimmers can avail themselves of the twenty-five-meter swimming lap that runs along one edge of the pool, perhaps followed by a soak in the raised spa. A border garden helps integrate the lawn and pool area.

and roses, unifying the property from the gracious front entry to the dock at the foot of the sloping backyard. Inside, de Santaren’s design continues the easy, flowing ambience. “I didn’t want any competition between the inside and the outdoor landscape and seascape,” he says. Every light-filled room is outfitted with furnishings chosen as much for comfort and effortless maintenance as for good looks. The handsome chairs surrounding the dining table (which extends to seat up to twenty-two for dinner) are, says Catalano, “probably the most comfortable dining chairs I’ve ever sat in my life.” In the same good-looking-yetpractical vein, the kitchen’s twin islands sport leathered-quartzite tops that de Santaren calls “practically indestructible,” and the living room floor wears fade- and stain-resistant indoor/outdoor carpeting. “There are no fragile materials in the house,” says de Santaren. Even the main bedroom suite fuses form and function. Built-in nightstands and dressers make the bedroom as efficient as a ship’s stateroom, while the bath is an all-white spa-like oasis. When the family opens the doors at the start of the warm season, it’s easy to imagine their fondest wish is that summer will never end. EDITOR’S NOTE: For details, see Resources.

“We spend a ton of time outside,” notes the wife, so it was important to create spaces for guests to gather, like this pergola-covered dining table and brick fireplace with a raised hearth.

uildable land can be tough to come by on Nantucket. So when you find an available lot on the very street your family has rented on for many years, you jump at the opportunity. Such was the lucky coincidence for a family who had been looking to build a vacation home in the Dionis neighborhood of the island. The wife, who has summered on Nantucket since childhood, gravitated toward Dionis for its

natural beauty (imagine wooded marshland and views of the Great Point Lighthouse from the pool deck) coupled with its proximity to town. She and her husband assembled a team—architect Mark Cutone, interior designer Donna Elle, and builder Joe Gamberoni of Cross Rip Builders—to make their vision a reality. They credit Cutone with siting the four-bedroom, 4,500-square-foot house and adjacent guest house just so to maximize the light and views.

LEFT: Designer Donna Elle was

averse to going stark white in the kitchen. “Because it’s part of the main space,” she says, “I didn’t want a contrast—I wanted a balance.” The cabinets have a strié finish that is white on off-white. RIGHT: Palecek chairs covered in Manuel Canovas cut-velvet fabric are an inviting spot for an aperitif; Elle and the homeowner discovered the bar at Ramble Market in Waltham, Massachusetts, and Cross Rip Builders retrofitted it and added a sink to suit the space.

“My approach is extremely holistic, and my clients don’t even realize it—they’re entering Donna’s spiritual world.” —INTERIOR DESIGNER DONNA ELLE Cutone says he designed a house with a “traditional Nantucket envelope, so it works contextually with the rest of the island,” employing classic cedar shingles, a red cedar roof, and white trim. The interior seamlessly follows suit, with an inviting cottage-farmhouse style evidenced by the exposed painted ceiling beams, the shiplap detailing, and the rustic charactergrade oak floors. Elle was instrumental in crafting the overall aesthetic of the house. “Other than my wanting

an open floor plan and using the word ‘comfort’ a lot, the rest was on her,” says the wife. Elle visited the owners’ home on the mainland, a traditional cape listed on the National Register of Historic Places, and then set out to break that mold on the island. She remembers that when she was devising the furniture plan in the open dining/ living/kitchen/bar area, she mapped it with painter’s tape, then climbed a ladder to snap photos, so the owners could visualize the difference between the island and mainland

layouts. “We maximized the heck out of that space,” Elle says with glee. The designer jibed well with her clients as she sought to fashion a retreat that met their needs and could essentially expand (host summer parties with extended family) or contract (enjoy a quiet weekend with their daughter) as needed. “I’m sensitive to how people feel in their home,” notes Elle. “My approach is extremely holistic, and my clients don’t even realize it—they’re entering Donna’s spiritual world.” Part of that sensitivity is sweating the details. A former dressmaker, Elle took great care to customize all of the living area furnishings, from the foam construction to the seat heights and depths, and incorporate pieces that spoke to her clients. “[The husband] said to me, ‘I want a whale in my house,’ ” remembers Elle. Nantucket artist Sunny Woods carved the handsome wood specimen that swims above the kitchen. The dining table has an equally cool story: it’s fabricated from the door of an Amish house, and the original turquoise milk paint is still visible. The cool factor stretches outside to the entertaining spaces—the pool, the fireplace, and the pergola-covered dining area—which the owners hoped would feel like extensions of the indoors. “We wanted open, casual, comfortable, and connected to the outdoors,” says the wife. Adding with a laugh: “We’re super casual, Solo-cup-type of people.” And indeed, one could

easily envision the iconic red cups making an appearance over by the pool—they’d be a perfect match for those throw pillows. EDITOR’S NOTE: For details, see Resources.

“It’s a house of parts that seem to have a casual relationship” is how architect Jacob Albert describes the rambling coastal home. The house minimizes its carbon footprint with solar power and a geothermal heating and cooling system. FACING PAGE: Overhangs nearly three feet deep, seen here outside the main bedroom, help reduce cooling demand by shading windows from the high summer sun.

ost of us equate recycling with sorting bottles and breaking down boxes. But architect Jacob Albert’s clients took the practice to a higher level when they realized a timeworn summer cottage sat squarely in the way Of their planned coastal home.

Rather than add the lumber, bricks, and roofing of the old building to the waste stream, they incorporated the onetime boathouse into their new home, preserving its rustic charm along with the materials used to build it. “You could consider the whole boathouse a recycled building,” Albert notes. While literally embodying the past, the 8,000-square-foot cedar-shingled

FAR LEFT: The front door’s cheerful

home also embraces the future on both a personal and planetary level. With grandchildren on the horizon, Albert’s clients needed a house large enough to accommodate their growing extended family. But out of concern for the environment, they wanted to minimize their home’s carbon footprint by reducing its use of fossil fuels. Albert and colleague Eric Rochon met

that challenge by designing a home with a double-wall assembly that prevents heat loss by confining mechanical elements to the interior, allowing uninterrupted insulation—both opencell spray foam and blown-in cellulose— in the outer wall. Twenty 200-foot-deep geothermal wells provide heating and cooling, with the home’s electrical use offset by solar panels mounted on its

orangey-red color sets the tone for the casual interior. ABOVE: It reappears in the living room in Morning Still Life, a painting by Lillia Frantin, which inspired the addition of bright greens and blues to the palette. Designer Heather Wells kept the vibe casual by incorporating vintage furnishings, such as this wicker-block sofa designed by John Hutton for Donghia.

garage and ocean-facing dormers. The structure’s size might have worked against energy conservation, but builder Peter Rosbeck points to the amount of roof area available for solar and the client’s commitment as determining factors. “I do feel strongly you can make larger homes sustainable provided you take the right steps to do so,” he says. The home’s placement was restricted, though that’s not immediately obvious to the casual observer. “We were hemmed in on every side,” explains Albert, referring to the setbacks, easements, and myriad constraints that dictated where the house could sit. Its low profile and gambrel roof express

the home’s twenty-six-foot height restrictions. Both also served Albert’s aesthetic goal. “We wanted to minimize the visual impact of what needed to be a pretty big house,” he says, explaining how the home’s meandering habit allowed him to position its eight bedrooms so that they could be grouped into a variety of family suites. Interior designer Heather Wells amped up the family friendliness with the easygoing, lived-in comfort of vintage furniture and rugs, and lively colors like Fine Paints of Europe’s Poppy, which debuts at the front door and makes cameo appearances throughout the house. “They really wanted it to be user-friendly, colorful,

cheerful, but very low-key,” she says. No part of the house fits that description better than the recycled cottage. Selfcontained, with its own kitchen, living area, bedroom, and screened porch, it remains uninsulated, joined to one of the first-floor guest rooms via an exterior door that closes it off in winter. Knowing her clients’ affection for its rusticity, Wells changed only the upholstery on the existing furniture. Before emptying the cottage in order to move it (it was temporarily relocated so that the framing for the new house could be built), she and designer Marianthi Thomas painstakingly documented its interior. “We photographed everything in place— every knickknack, every book,” recalls Thomas. “It was tedious but well worth it because the clients really loved this space, and they felt it was their job to keep it just the way it was.” Everything was put back in its rightful spot when the final home was finished, even the cottage, proving that reduce, reuse, recycle can, indeed, be remarkable.

The 100-year-old cottage on the site was moved to make way for construction of the new house, then attached to one end and furnished exactly as it had been—sans insulation, and with nothing but a glass-andwood garage door separating it from its rebuilt screened porch. “We thought it would really spoil it to winterize it,” the architect says.

Architecture firm Workshop/APD conceived a series of simple forms for the main residence and a detached garage with an upper-level guest suite, both of which are clad in cedar. Situated between the newly built structures are two mature poplar trees that the homeowners wanted to preserve on the beachside property.

rom a design professional’s perspective, one of the most enticing benefits of working with longtime clients is the innate understanding of their general wants and needs. So when architect Andrew Kotchen, founding principal of Manhattan-based firm Workshop/APD, was tapped for a fourth

time by the same clients, he not only knew how they like to live but how he could improve their lifestyle with this latest project, a family-friendly retreat on Nantucket. (Kotchen also designed the couple’s two previous vacation homes on the island as well as their Brooklyn townhouse).

“THIS HOUSE IS ABOUT PURITY OF FORM ON THE EXTERIOR AND EXPOSING THAT FORM ON THE INTERIOR.” —Architect Andrew Kotchen The oceanfront property—complete with views of Miacomet Pond—had been home to a post-and-beam residence “that wasn’t taking advantage of its location,” explains Kotchen. “The clients trusted us to understand the site and do what we do best.” The result, says the architect, is “pared-down cottage modernism that’s true to Nantucket gable style. The pavilion-based aesthetic feels like a series of three different structures, but they’re connected.” In addition to the 5,000-square-foot six-bedroom main house, the retreat includes a pool cabana and a multifunctional detached garage that features two levels: one for offseason parking or summertime Ping-Pong games, and a second that serves as a guest suite. All structures are clad in a mix of red and white cedar, which will weather until “everything is draped in a gray blanket,” says Kotchen. The pavilion feel carries through to the inside, where soaring ceilings and an open plan prevail. “This house is about purity of form on the exterior and exposing that form on the interior,” explains Kotchen. And natural light floods every space, thanks to the three exposures in each room. But perhaps the most important

element of this project was delivering a design that caters to entertaining family. “Because we’ve worked with this client on other houses, we’ve been able to refine the program from home to home,” says Kotchen. “They love to cook, so we focused on the great room, which includes a professional chef ’s kitchen and the family room. We thought about how this kitchen relates to both interior and exterior dining, the grill area, and the pool. It’s really the center of the home.”

Adjacent to the kitchen is the dining area, which contains a custom ash table by Fern, chairs from Nuevo, and lighting from d’Armes. FACING PAGE: Workshop/APD also designed the interiors, creating a highly functional professional-style chef’s kitchen with oak cabinetry and flooring and durable stainless-steel countertops.

131

CI21_WorkshopAPD-Nantucket_Fin.indd 131

4/28/21 3:33 PM


Workshop/APD also designed the interiors, selecting everything from the white oak that adorns the floors, cabinetry, and paneling down to the streamlined mix of custom and contemporary furnishings. “It’s a natural palette, with shades of green, gray, and blue that speak to Nantucket’s landscape,” says Kotchen. “When you have a view, you don’t want the interiors to be too loud. It’s about letting everything recede and connecting to nature.” Local landscape designer Miroslava Ahern strived to make that connection even stronger by incorporating elements of the abutting dunes into the property. “The natural vegetation is low and quiet, so I chose native plants that fit in,” says Ahern, who also worked with the clients on their two previous island homes. “We went with simple and elegant: beachgrass, a couple different shrubs, and just two or three types of trees. And the pool is tucked into the side of the property that connects to the outdoor dining.” It’s a far cry from what was once a “heavily wooded and underdeveloped lot,” according to Kotchen, proving that longterm relationships can yield big rewards. EDITOR’S NOTE: For details, see Resources. TOP TO BOTTOM: A cozy reading nook on the second floor is “an unexpected place to hang out on a rainy day,” says architect Andrew Kotchen of one of his favorite spaces in the home. The main bedroom features a serene palette and a Blu Dot daybed.

Outside, landscape designer Miroslava Ahern worked with a restrained palette that would complement the natural vegetation of the beachside setting. Native species near the pool area include summersweet, bayberry, and beachgrass. “I wanted to make the client feel connected to the surroundings, so I used plants that are simple and elegant,” says Ahern.

AWARD-WINNING CAPE HOME We’re not sure which deserves top billing: the breathtaking site on Nantucket Sound, or the architectural significance of this residence. We think you’ll agree they should share the marquee. The Barnstable oceanfront property has privacy, beautifully manicured landscaping, dreamy views, porches, decks, patios—and its own whitesand beach. The Shingle-style home, known as Wellington House when it was built circa 1900, has garnered attention both for its history and the extraordinary 2018 renovation designed by noted architect Patrick Ahearn. The project earned the 2020 Bulfinch Award for Residential Renovation by the Institute of Classical Architecture

The renovation team (with interiors designed by the late Richard FitzGerald and his colleague Kathleen Sullivan) added striking architectural details and brought back the essence of a grand country house across all three floors. A formal living and dining area, chef ’s kitchen, family room, sunroom, office, and enclosed porch comprise the first floor. The second floor includes the main bedroom suite and three other bedrooms, while on the third floor there is a playroom/sitting room and three additional bedrooms, one with an

MODERN MARVEL ON NANTUCKET Unique among luxury properties on Nantucket, this brand-new, open-plan, minimalist family home proves materials matter. It will be a special homeowner who moves into this compound, which includes a main house, pool cabana, and a two-car garage with an attached studio apartment, says listing agent Chandra Miller. Designed by Mark Cutone Architecture + and built by New York-based M2 Development, the home incorporates finishes and specs that go above and beyond. For

starters, on entering you’re greeted by a glass-enclosed 200-plus-bottle climatecontrolled wine room and a great room with soaring nineteen-foot ceilings. The kitchen features Arabescato marble (seen on a massive waterfall island), an Italian stone repeated in multiple spaces throughout the home, lending a sense of continuity to the design, says Miller. Other details include a custom staircase with metal spindles and solid-oak risers and a glass-structured catwalk. The main house boasts five bedrooms and

six full and two half baths. French doors seamlessly create an indoor/outdoor living experience. The modern aesthetic continues on the lower level (with a recreation room, four custom built-in bunks, and a full bath) and outdoors (with a sixteen-by-forty-four-foot pool, twin cabanas, a gas firepit, a spa adjacent to the first-floor guest suite, and multiple sitting areas).

The lion’s share of this home’s charm is owed to its location. The nearly 6,000-square-foot house sits on one and a half acres overlooking Vineyard Haven Harbor toward East Chop Lighthouse. It is steps away from its own beach and a short walk to downtown Vineyard Haven. The land was once part of a larger lot that included the neighboring historic Mill House, lived in by author Lillian Hellman in the mid-1950s and frequented for more than a decade by a coterie of famous writers. This particular home was built in 2004. The entryway instills a feeling of soothing calm, says listing agent Bobbi Flake Reed. Through French doors in the spacious living and dining room, you can see the harbor, where “the views are always intriguing, with the comings and goings of the ferry and the abundance of boats moored nearby,” says Reed. The home boasts four bedrooms, a primary suite with water views on three sides, and a widow’s walk. A walkout basement features a wet bar, workout

room with sauna, game area, and media room. A 1,300-square-foot two-bedroom guesthouse sits down the hill from the main house. Enjoy outdoor living at its finest with multiple lounging areas, including a sunny bluestone terrace; there’s also an outdoor kitchen, stone fireplace, and spa. Thoughtfully designed landscaping consists of native shrubs, grasses, and flowering plants. CONTACT: Bobbi Flake Reed, Viewpoints,

Designed to look like a residential living room, the lobby at Nantucket’s Faraway, seen here in a rendering, features Gracie’s New World wallpaper.

Stay Faraway hen Boston-based Blue Flag Partners began reimagining the four historic captains’ homes it had purchased on Nantucket’s India Street, a story emerged. What if a Gertrude Stein-esque ship captain returned to Nantucket, where she had been born, with a boatload of treasures and set up house in the middle of town where nightly she regaled friends with tales of her travels? What would her estate look like? From that bit of fiction, Faraway, a sixty-two-room boutique hotel opening June 1, was born.

CI_21 Last Look_Fin.indd 152

Designed as an “escape through the senses,” according to Jason Brown, managing partner at Blue Flag, the hotel features a warm color palette meant to evoke exotic Spice Route ports of call—it even has its own custom scent and playlist. If it all seems very residential, that’s the point. “We want guests to feel like their friend loaned out her cool, sexy, mysterious, funky house to them and their friends while they are on the island,” Brown says.
