The blast of a ferry boat horn or harbor foghorn; the slicing of a fisherman’s skiff or a recreational kayak through calm water; the glide of a seagull or great blue heron through the air; the laughter of grandchildren or the chatter of friends on the breeze—these are simple pleasures of Martha’s Vineyard cove-front living, and Vineyard Landing is a home designed to take full advantage.

Crossing gambrel roofs, sometimes in pairs, allow for a complex massing and an “L” shaped plan to capture views from almost every room in the house. A corner tower anchors the water facing wing and provides balance for the horizontal nature of the long west facing façade and the porch that runs along its length. Traditional gridded windows as well as picture windows that maximize views populate the facades but don’t overwhelm the picturesque massing that is tied together by the shingles and abundant white trim.
