    Default Tony (Monk) Shalhoub’s Cottage on Martha’s Vineyard

    Tony Shalhoub’s Cottage on Martha’s Vineyard

    by hookedonhouses on April 13, 2010


    Actor Tony Shalhoub (Monk) and his wife Brooke Adams have a charming cottage on Martha’s Vineyard where they spend their summers with their family. Country Living featured their 2,500 square foot saltbox recently, and I loved it. Take a look!

    In the article, Katy McColl writes:“Although you might expect a couple of Hollywood stars to opt for a seaside manse with marble bathrooms and an infinity pool, Shalhoub and Adams — who met in 1989 while performing on Broadway — chose this getaway precisely because it’s an antidote to their family’s other life, in Los Angeles.”

    The house was built in the 1930s by a man who–on a bet–used only a hammer and handsaw. As a result, the house has no insulation or drywall, and a few other quirks, as well.
    What a fun idea to hang small paintings up the staircase like this (and I love those old books stacked on the table, too!):

    A lot of DIY projects were involved in decorating the house. For example, Brooke’s sister Lynne built their daughter Sophie this bed with white picket fencing:

    This looks like the perfect place to spend the summer to me! I’ll probably need to get my own TV show to afford it, though. Did you know that the cost of living on the island is 60% higher than the national average? And housing prices are 96% higher. Yikes. (Stats via the Vineyard Gazette.)
    Visit Country Living to read the article and see the entire slideshow of the cottage. (Photos by Lucas Allen.)

    Very cute. A little on the very sweet side, but great as a getaway place.

    Love it. It's looks so cozy. Martha's Vineyard is on my dream list of places to visit.

    love him, but the decor is too twee for me.

    I love the place (and him), but I agree some of the stuff is a tad cutesy. I can't place my finger on why, I guess I'd just put some darker accents in there.

    I just realized that's a white picket fence bed.

    Did he hire someone to country chic it up? Ghastly.

    It really doesn't look like a man resides there. It's more like Kirstie Alley just got started. I love houses like that (and who doesn't love a house on Martha's Vineyard?), but I don't understand why the decor looks so frilly.

    I think this house is too feminine, even if it were a single woman living there.

    In that case then it needs more Pepto Bismol.
