Woodland retreat on Martha’s Vineyard with ultimate indoor-outdoor living

Woodland Retreat-Marthas Vineyard-01-1 Kindesign

This woodland retreat is a renovation project carried out by Sullivan + Associates Architects in collaboration with Rentschler & Company Interiors. The home is located in Edgartown, a town on the island of Martha’s Vineyard, Massachusetts. This incredible property is characterized by compact, independent living spaces that are connected by a breezeway and expansive patio. The pair of pagoda-like structures were transformed into functional and stylish living spaces. Outdoor living spaces were also reconfigured to meet this family of four’s needs.

The architects also created a 600 square foot addition, bringing the total living space to 2,200 square feet. For the main house, two dormer windows helps to infuse the living room with natural light. This also helped make the second level feel more spacious. A screened-in porch was added downstairs to extend the living and dining areas. The master bathroom was given a modernized update, with the addition of an outdoor shower. Outside, a built-in propane fire pit serves as a family gathering spot, set between the living spaces.

What We Love: This fabulous woodland retreat features bright and airy living spaces and cozy outdoor spaces designed for family enjoyment. The concept of this home is perfect for a vacation pad, with a main house and guest house connected by a covered walkway. This helps keeps the spaces separated and private, while still closely connected for social enjoyment.

Readers, what do you think, would this be your idea of the ultimate vacation home? Let us know in the comments below.
