Ready for another Dreamy Dwelling Home Tour!?! I love starting Fridays with a spark of inspiration! How about a Martha’s Vineyard House Tour!?! This spectacular home is decorated with a blend of old, new, traditional, and coastal — I totally LOVE it! And…
Since today is Halloween, I thought I’d share a place with a FREAKY past! This mega-mansion in Martha’s Vineyard is not far from where the taping of “Jaws” took place!!! This Amity Island home has pond frontage that is probably safe for swimming!?!!? Watch for sharks though because areas nearby are considered HAZARDOUS!
The inviting foyer has a gorgeous sweeping staircase that opens into a beautiful two story living room with vaulted ceilings.
The fabric on these large sofas is gorgeous. I think it’s great that this huge living room still has warmth.
I think the warm wood tones in the floors, the trimmed walls, the collectibles on the built-ins, and the mismatched tables give this room a lived-in feel that I really value in a home.
It’s interesting that they builder didn’t have the custom built-ins and fireplace scaled incredibly large — I think it’s genius.
I love that orchid on the coffee table and the small chippy table with a lamp is a total eye catcher.
Anyone else LOVING the wall color in the kitchen!?! The gourmet kitchen has custom milled cabinetry, soapstone countertops, an 8-burner Viking Range, and a Sub-Zero refrigerator. The things dreams are made of, right!
I totally LOVE the range and hood – gorgeous! But, look at how practical the space is designed, as well. A square kitchen with lots of storage and a fridge that actually allows you to hang a calendar and important invitations — got to love cork!
This soapstone is GORGEOUS in contrast with the white cabinets.
And oh my goodness what I wouldn’t pay for a farmhouse table and chair set like the one pictured below.
The chandelier is picture perfect, too. Makes me love my Newly Remodeled Chandelier even more!!!
French doors leading out to the landscaped grounds is pictured below.
Such a luxury retreat to be able to dining on your back porch and enjoy spectacular water views!
The living room was totally inviting, but check out the coziness of this casual living family room.
I can not get over how the tv above the fireplace has hinged doors that put it out of site when not in use. TV is a fabulous thing, but sort of unsightly, right.
For example, here. I think this room needs a way to conceal the TV, too. Maybe a little more difficult because of the wall of windows in this gorgeous space.
That view is breathtaking!
And for all you 2″ Faux Blind peeps out there (myself included in the count) — if you don’t love them, but kind of need them — the owners of this mega-mansion with a to die for view aren’t too cool for them.
This bathroom is exactly how I would remodel my bathroom if money wasn’t an issue. I love the color, the mirror trim, the marble, and that tub…oh my gosh I love that tub!
Dreamy, right! The shower looks pretty luxurious, too!
This bedroom is a little smaller than the master suite, but is still roomy and bright. I love all these iron beds.
I haven’t ever seen a mirror trimmed like this before. I like it! I also love the incorporated starfish…understated, yet fun!
A smaller room with another beautiful view.
Do you think you could drown out the Jaws Theme Music playing and enjoy this amazing home!!?
More fabulous House Tours (here).
