Set on a small village lot bounded by Waban Park with distant Ocean views a writers aerie was designed and built. Martha’s Vineyard long the home for artists , journalists and theater people was to have yet another National figure join its ranks. We were privileged to receive the commission.
The house ,built on four levels ,was conceived and executed in the early 20th century style . Steep gambrel roofs ,Multiple stone fireplaces , weathered shingles and lattice windows are but a few of the buildings nods to the local vernacular.
The owners employed us to design the gardens as well as outfit the interiors……the results were seamless and in keeping with the Credos that Judge Skelton Smith has expressed over four decades of professional practice. Needless to say “Jack Ryan “ would have been happy here…….and indeed he was.
