Concept Building LLC is committed to building beautifully crafted homes with the highest quality materials possible. Jeff Capello, president of Concept, started this company to not only build great houses but to build relationships as well. “100’s of companies are able to build a great house but only a few are able to build a great house while maintaining a clients excitement and enthusiasm from the first shovel to the move in day.” Capello tries to bear the burden of a builds challenges and decisions that are sometimes difficult on clients. This former house on Edgartown Harbor was a ranch with an indoor pool owed by the late Arthur Young. Before the house was tore down the flooring, wide plank Fir that was salvaged from an old ship, were pulled and installed by Habitat for Humanity for one of their a new homes on Martha’s Vineyard.
This home is a shingle style open floor plan. The Alaskan yellow cedar roof is one of the home’s most subtle features. The bleached shingles help soften the façade. The interior is covered in woodwork, coffered and beaded ceilings. There is wainscoting and paneled walls throughout. Scores of windows welcome the morning sunrise and smother the interior with light all day. The rear deck is a welcoming spot with a Gobi stone patio where several chaise lounges are waiting for your derriere to land.
