On the western shore of Lagoon Pond in Vineyard Haven, a long-neglected Victorian summer cottage was expanded and renovated for a new generation of owners. Generous wrap-around porches lead out to an expansive lawn and colorful gardens for this close-knit, socially active family to enjoy. A European-inspired vehicle ramp with an integrated stair of aged granite connects the parking area to the kitchen entrance for ease of unloading cargo. Dense screen plantings shield the private spaces of the house from an adjacent roadway in close proximity to the new master bedroom wing.
