Dreamy Cape Cod Colonial by Patrick Ahearn Architect

Edgartown, Massachusetts, United States

While perusing the streets of Edgartown, Massachusetts via Google Maps, we came across the “Fuller Street Cape”. The 1930s Cape Cod home was fully renovated by one of the greatest classical architects, Patrick Ahearn. Here’s what he had to say about the project, “A classic Cape Cod–style gambrel-roofed Colonial, this gut-renovated 1935 house proves perennially popular with passersby, thanks to its quintessential storybook charm and character. Intimate in scale and set back from the street, it feels like a true country house, despite being in the heart of Edgartown Village. Timeless details—including its weathered shingles with crisp white details, window boxes with bright flowers, and operable shutters with pins and holdbacks—give it a certain nostalgic sensibility. Inside, it encourages twenty-first-century living, offering much more space than seems possible from the street and plenty of indoor-outdoor entertaining opportunities. Beyond the primary residence, the reimagined property includes a pool and cabana, a freestanding carriage house nestled in the back corner of its acreage, and extensive landscaping—all of it new. Each of these elements was planned to be perfectly in scale with the home, ensuring that a sense of romance and intimacy runs through the entire ensemble.”
