Have you ever imagined building a coastal cottage? How would it look? Where would it be located? Planning, dreaming and finally realizing this was something that took some time and careful choices for this couple.

The homeowners of this shingle cottage envisioned a new home as a homestead to be handed down from generation to generation. New England architectural elements such as the gambrel roof and the use of vernacular materials such as cedar shingles and beadboard allow the cottage to appear unchanged and unchanging. An intuitive straight forward plan connects family spaces with expansive openings of glass that foster outside summer living that opens to a screened wing breakfast room that connects the cottage to the pool.

This enchanting shingle style cottage enjoys views in every direction from Edgerton Bay to rare expanses of farmland on Martha’s Vineyard.

Architecture: Donald Lococo Architects

This place seems to be a great spot for reading or just daydreaming.

Can you “feel” the silence of this space…? Calmness.

Nothing looks better with weathered singles than bluestone. Isn’t this stunning?

It would be lovely to add a bistro set and have breakfast in this beautiful courtyard.

Chandelier is an antique.

The planter hung on the siding was picked up locally by the owner. These particular type of planters use coco lining which is the exterior moss-like texture shown.

According to the architect, these are Red cedar 18″ perfections. They are unstained and unpainted and were this way when photos were taken a few years after construction. Natural cedar weathers differently in different climates and locations. This house in Martha’s Vineyard is subject to driving rains and drying winds which affects the color.

Between white picket fences, rose gardens, hydrangeas, Dutch doors, weathered shingles and garden sheds, this cottage is truly a place that is hard to forget and so easy to feel inspired by!

I hope this home has brought some beauty to your day.


Many thanks to the architect for sharing the details above!
