This home on Edgartown’s Katama Bay is as beautiful as its surroundings

The transition between the structure and the drama going on outside is seamless through large expanses of windows. Endless skies and ocean views complement the natural materials and interior design choices.

Just as Katama Bay transforms with the cycles of nature, Hutker Architects and the project team set out to create a home with distinct spaces that allow its residents and guests to adapt to the changing moods of Martha’s Vineyard. On the water side of the home, a bluestone terrace and fire pit encourage guests to take advantage of late evening hours, while the pool and poolhouse, set back behind the family wing, celebrate sun and warmth. Ehrman says: “We wanted to create various opportunities to live in the spaces. For instance, when the wind comes up from the south, there are protected areas. This is a home that can have a lot going on with a lot of people or just a little bit happening with fewer people and still feel appropriately scaled.” 

Ehrman is grateful to the entire project team—from the owners, to Martha’s Vineyard Interior Design, to Caleb Nicholson of Contemporary Landscapes, who designed the gardens and the rest of the landscaping. Scott Stearns of J.G. Early Builders led the construction team. “Given all the edges of the project, these guys were perfect,” says Ehrman. “They do some of the best work on Martha’s Vineyard.” And for this, generations of family will surely enjoy this home above Katama Bay for many cycles of transformation to come.
