Island Living – Beautiful Homes of Edgartown, Martha’s Vineyard

What kind of blogger goes to Martha’s Vineyard, Massachusetts and forgets to look up the 2015 HGTV Dream Home?  Umm…that would be me!  I know they don’t give tours any more but you would think I would have remembered to swing by one of my favorite HGTV Dream Homes of all time!

Instead, we spent plenty of time staring at all the other beautiful homes in Edgartown, Martha’s Vineyard!

**Update to this post – Since I knew many of these beautiful homes above were designed by the amazing architect, Patrick Ahearn, I asked for his book for Christmas…

    Yes, I've been to MV, but it's been several years ago. But oh, I do remember the allure of the homes, the whole area (it was Sept). Great post, happy Michael Lee shared it on Foodie Friday. Have a great weekend, Shelley.Rita C at Panoply
