This beautiful coastal home designed by Salt Architecture together with Martha’s Vineyard Interior Design overlooks Ryder’s Cove, a saltwater estuary located in North Chatham, Massachusetts.

A priority for the exterior of the house was to balance traditional Cape/Chatham forms and materials in deference to its location with the homeowner’s desire for a more modern aesthetic.
