For HGTV Dream Home 2015, lead architect, Patrick Ahearn, designed a house that reflects the shack cottages that are scattered in Edgartown on Martha's Vineyard.

“You pull up and think, ‘Oh my gosh. This is the best house ever,’” says the home’s interior designer Linda Woodrum. “That’s how I feel, and I would like to win this house!”
HGTV Dream Home 2015 is a one-story vacation home with an open floor plan. When you walk through the front door you'll find yourself in the breathtaking, two-story living room.

Natural light streams into the living room, and a stone veneer fireplace stretches floor-to-ceiling. Exposed timber beams were locally sourced and chosen to achieve the classic Cape Cod look.
Finished Great Room
The finished great room is a light, open space with a classic neutral color palette. “The great room structure is that new modern way of living, which would not have happened in New England,” explains interior designer Linda Woodrum. “There would have been small, dark, boxy rooms, but we all know that we are living in this new way where there is this wonderful open space.”
