Dreamscrolling the New England real estate market is one of my favorite internet pastimes, and I know I’m not alone. As a home history nerd, my primary filter is “Year Built,” which lets me hunt for my dream center-chimney Colonial in Massachusetts, turreted two-tone Victorian in Vermont, or untouched midcentury ranch in Maine. But sometimes, a property stands out for a truly magical combination of style, setting, and original details.
On my most recent dream-dive (which, like all dreams, is not concerned with the reality of a staggering mortgage or leaking roof), I found myself zeroing in on a three-season 1890 cottage on Martha’s Vineyard. As I scrolled, I imagined sipping coffee in a front porch rocker, crocheting in the sunroom, steaming lobster and clams in the kitchen, and waking up to the smell of salty sea air. Have a look and see if it doesn’t have the same effect on you.
Is this your dream Martha’s Vineyard summer home?
