Our Homes

Carpenter Gothic began in the mid 1800’s as a form of Victorian architecture. It was popularized because of it’s use of ‘balloon framing’ and the use of the steam powered ‘scroll saw,’ which made all the Victorian gingerbread possible.

Skiff Cove builds in, and around, Bayside, which is on the National Register of Historical Places. Bayside, much like Oak Bluffs in Martha’s Vineyard, began as a tented church camp.

There is an enthusiastic Bayside community and you should visit their website to view photos of Baysiders in action, and to get a glimpse of the unique style of this charming area.

Each Skiff Cove property is architect-designed specifically for the sites we’ve chosen. And each home is designed in the style of this significant neighborhood.

Our new homes only require a standard deposit, with the balance financed conventionally through your bank, or ours, and paid when ownership is taken at closing.
