Nestled on South Road in Chilmark is this eclectic, rustic yet newly renovated house and guest house ....Formerly known as "The Fenner Barn" the original home was once a two story barn dating from 1900. The current owners embarked on a renovation which would keep the authentic feel of this original barn, but bring a modern utilitarian vibe to the traditional New England antique building. A metal seam roof was added, large windows, industrial lighting and concrete counters were stylishly combined with natural materials such as the beautifully refinished original floors, whitewashed wood, exposed beams and stone walls. The comfy, casual main family home has a large primary bedroom and bath on the first floor as well as an open kitchen/breakfast room, dining, living area with beautiful hardwood floors, and exposed beams with a large fireplace centering the space. Two newly added large square double height windows that look out to the yard help to bring nature into this home. There are two additional screened in porches off of which help to give this home a great indoor/outdoor flow. Upstairs to the second floor great room , new oversized windows help to create great light. This room has exposed white-washed beams and trusses, two bedrooms and a bath and den/office in the loft above. Floor mounted AC mini splits provide the heating and cooling and there are new appliances throughout. The exterior of the home has been treated with a Japanese style process called Shou Sugi Ban. This technique will maximize the longevity of the rough milled pine and gives it a bold contrast to the red metal roof. The sprawling outdoor space with quintessential Chilmark stone walls, a great patio with fire pit and play area, plus an amazing stand alone outdoor shower constructed of stone, wood and metal. The property has an impressive assortment of established trees and lawn area that separates the main home from the sweet one bed guest cottage with full bath and second outdoor shower. Beyond this is the basketball court, storage sheds and paths that connect through to hiking trails to the south shore and and other ancient ways.
