On the Market: A Showstopping Mansion on Martha’s Vineyard
Designed by Robert A.M. Stern Architects, this 10-acre estate overflows with luxury, from a massage room surrounded by beachy murals to a chef's kitchen with soaring ceilings.
12 Boldwater Road, Edgartown
Size: 11,000 square feet
With the temperature starting to creep up, this Martha’s Vineyard mansion has a way of answering the siren call of the summer while letting its occupants stay safe at home. How, you ask? For one, the 20-by-60-foot swimming pool is anxiously awaiting the first scorching hot day, as is the property’s private piece of beach. The spacious stone patio outfitted with a built-in grill and the screened-in porch with a fireplace are also prime spots for browning some burgers or staying outside but away from mosquitos on a summer evening. The pool house is a hideaway sure to relieve any stress you’ve been feeling, whether that’s through sweating it out in the sauna or sun-filled gym, or reclining on a cushioned table in the massage room, which is made even more soothing by the beach-themed murals that embellish the walls.
Stepping into the main home’s foyer, your sense of zen will remain fully intact: A sweeping staircase, white beamed ceilings, and a window seat set into plentiful windows adorn a beautifully calming entrance. Designed by Robert A.M. Stern Architects, the 11,000-square-foot living space showcases 20-foot ceilings, spa-like bathrooms, and multiple luminous sitting and living rooms. The kitchen is one of those bright, open spaces you can envision finally learning to love cooking in, featuring three long lengths of blue-hued granite counter, glass-door cabinets, and lunette windows. If you’re frying up some eggs for breakfast, you can carry the plates to the adjoining breakfast nook with a built-in banquette, centered by a bistro table and chandelier. When dinnertime calls, everyone can retire instead to the octagonal dining room encompassed by windows—after choosing a bottle from the cavernous wine cellar on the lower level, of course.
