Located down a quiet lane with manicured lawns and stone walls, this contemporary expanded cape at 14 Tabor Hills was built with an attention to fine detail. It's Edgartown style meets Chilmark retreat.

Constructed by its owners, the home was designed for year-round use and is marked by quality finishes throughout. Tasteful full-legth curtains, plush rugs and elegant funishings create an inviting home that can serve as a relaxing summer residence as well a refined winter retreat.

Comfy couch

The house was carefully designed to maximize comfort and relaxation.

The gourmet kitchen features cathedral ceilings, custom cabinetry, granite countertops and a  Sub-Zero fridge. A brilliant cooking triangle with two sinks (one at the island), intelligently designed cabinets and a Viking stove make this kitchen one any chef will love.


The breathtaking kitchen is filled with profesional grade appliences.

A spacious dining room naturally lit by overhead windows has French doors that open out to a lovely brick patio. Perfect for grilling and enjoying the fresh air, the patio overlooks nicely landscaped grounds with an irrigated lawn.

Dining room:kitchen vaulted ceiling

The dining room enjoys vaulted ceilings, natural light, beautiful hard wood floors, and a view out to the patio.

The wide, hard yellow pine floor boards are secured by rose head nails — old fashioned square-cut nails that underscore the attention to detail pursued by the builder, Kevin Cusack of Autumn Construction.


The patio is an excelent location any time of day. Enjoy your morning coffee, the afternoon sun, or a home-cooked dinner at the sun goes down.

The master bedroom, also with French doors out to the patio, is located on the ground floor. The warm and inviting space features a brick fireplace and its own private bathroom. The first floor also features a separate office/study.

Master bedroom

The owners put great care into designing the master bedroom as a private sanctuary.

Master bedroom and fireplace

The master bedroom has its own fireplace that ads warmth to the room even without a fire.

Master bath

The master bath has a luxurious tub and custom fixtures.

Upstairs are two additional bedrooms, one with walk-in closet, a full bath (redone in 2012), a linen closet and large storage closet in the hallway.

Guest Bedroom

One of the two guest rooms upstairs has a walk-in closet.

Also on the property is a detached over-size two car garage. It has an unfinished studio/loft and an attached shed that have a great deal of potential as a guest space or secluded getaway.


The garage has a loft/studio space waiting for your personal touch.

The owners, who built the house, have continually updated the home over the years, maintaining its pristine condition. In 2011 they installed central air.  Most recently, a new red cedar roof with copper gutters and linings was added to the house and garage at a cost of $45,000. That's more the double the cost of asphalt shingles, but the resulting appearance is stunning.

The home, sited on more than three private acres, has nearby conservation walking trails and is just minutes to Menemsha or Lucy Vincent Beach. Listed at $1,595,000. Listed by Karen M. Overtoom R.E.
