There are houses, and then there are homes.
A home has a soul, a rhythmic heartbeat dictating what goes where and why. A home is an amalgamation of memories past and a platform for memories yet to be made.
This mid-century modern home at 13 Little Oak Lane has an artistic flare that serves as a blank canvas for its future owners. The unique design features a stunning loft running the length of the house, two secluded guest spaces and expansive water views over the Atlantic Ocean.
A recent visitor asserted, "Descriptions don’t quite do this home justice – you need to visit it yourself."
The kitchen, dining room, and living room are an integrated space ideal for entertaining.
A bright open floor plan comprised of the dining room, living room and kitchen is surrounded by big windows to take advantage of the water view and maximize natural light. Central AC and a passive solar design utilizing glass and wood make the space easy to heat and cool.
Open beam cathedral ceilings, wooden decks, built-in bookcases and a wood-burning stove give this contemporary home a sense of warmth that other modern houses often lack.
The living room is a wide-open space with infinite potential.
Several decks and a roof porch adorn the house, each with a water view. A breezeway across the deck connects the main house to two additional bedrooms and a bathroom, offering a private guest space with views over the lawn to the Atlantic Ocean, Squibnocket Ridge and Nomans Land in the distance.
The two decks maximize summer living space. The breezeway and guest room are on the right.
The water views of this home are actually expansive. The strip of ocean may apear slight but its sweeping dimension becomes quickly apparent in person.
The house sits atop a hill, looking out over tree tops that lead down to the water.
The spacious dining room is surrounded by floor-to-ceiling windows looking out to the deck and landscape beyond. It features wooden beams and a wood-burning stove.
The dining room combines wood and metal to please the eye.
Upstairs, via sprial staircase, is a spacious 44-foot artist loft with viewing deck. Nearly a dozen skylights brighten up the wood panneling and open beams. The skylights also provide the comfortable loft snapshots of water views. The previous owner used this space as her home studio.
Featuring an office, sitting area and a kitchenette, the loft makes for an ideal personal space.
The master bedroom is set back on the first floor. Floor-to ceiling windows fill the master bedroom with natural light. Wooden accents provide the master bedroom warmth to create a private sanctuary.
Wooden panneling provides the master bedroom a fresh and cozy feel through all seasons.
Rhododendrons, boulders, a meditation garden and pergola offer quiet spots to enjoy the peaceful landscape.
Glacial boulders provide defininition to the lawn.
Behind the pergola is a storage shed/workshop and an additional summer cottage with bath and outdoor shower. Separated from the house, the bunkhouse is a private getaway for friends or family.
Barn doors swing out to expose a screened-in sitting area in the guest cottage.
The cozy interior of the bunkhouse is inviting and comfortable.
The property is surrounded by conservation land, walking trails and is a short distance to the spectacular Lucy Vincent Beach, which is limited to Chilmark residents.
This creative modern home was designed for easy living. It serves as an idyllic summer retreat but is also well-insulated to fare comfortably through a New England winter. It's the perfect home to create new memories all year long.
