A Trinity of Trust
Intrepid homeowners team up with architect John Dvorsack and M. Duffany Builders for a trifecta of a project
The fortunate few who share their lives with a magnificent view understand that a vista is not inanimate. Instead, it is an ever-changing, ever-evolving entity that takes up residence in our surroundings, in our psyche and always, always, contributes to our discourse.
For homeowners Joanne and Joe, the decision to put roots down in Falmouth wasn’t a big one; they already owned a summer home in the waterfront community of Great Pond in Falmouth, and gathered there regularly with their grown children, extended family and an never-ending collection of friends. But given the constraints of many summer homes—not enough bedrooms, and never enough bathrooms—an investigation into what might be on the market led them to a very special offering on Davis Neck with expansive views of Vineyard Sound. While the listed home was aged and lacking, the site—with 180 feet of sandy beach on saltwater frontage—and that view were one in a million. A conversation with a friend, whose West Falmouth home they admired, led them to sit down with Falmouth architect John Dvorsack.
“Working with John was just an incredible experience,” recalls Joanne. “He could envision this project every step of the way. I knew I had ideas and certain things I definitely wanted incorporated, and he accomplished all of that, but more importantly, he added and thought of things I would have never considered.”
