About Julie Nathanson

I'm an artist and designer with a background in public art. For many years I lived in Brooklyn and made all kinds of glass sculpture and several glass tile murals in the subway.

I wanted to buy and renovate a house with my art and design skills.

Three years ago I met my boyfriend Todd who can build anything under the sun including motorcycles. We did the renovation together.

Julie Nathanson purchased this house in 2012

Why Julie Nathanson chose Martha's Vineyard

Martha's Vineyard is such a special place with unrivaled natural beauty, world class art and music scene and cultural diversity. After living in NYC I didn't want to move to a stuffy New England town but I wanted to be closer to my family. People on the Vineyard are from all over the world.

When the opportunity to buy a home here I jumped feet first. I loved that you could walk from the ferry since I don't always want to bring my car. One cool thing is that you can flag down the buses here, like taxi cabs, and the #1 bus goes right by our house. They also can carry bikes.

What makes this house unique

It was important to me to try to sustainable. The house needed to be completely gutted. As much as I could I tried to use recycled materials. I wanted to see if it was possible to make something luxurious and modern from materials people saw as useless. The tiles in the bathroom are cut from a discarded slate roof. It's amazing how much people throw out when they renovate and some of the materials they get rid of are of higher quality than what's available today. If you look at the floors you'll see the planks are very long. I reclaimed the floors from an old house in Cambridge that was being demolished. They were made in the US over 75 years ago. I found a big pile of fir boards from a barn that was torn down in southern RI. We used it to make all the baseboards, trim around the windows, around the tub, mirrors and vanity and the ceiling of the back porch. One of the headboards is made from a discarded pool table base.

On the design end I wanted to be pampered. The bathroom has a large walk in shower and a deep soaking tub, two sinks and granite counters. The vanity is handmade by my talented and long suffering boyfriend.

The kitchen is filled with stainless appliances, a gas cooktop, wall oven, commercial dishwasher, quartz countertops and cherry cabinets.

One of my favorite details is the upstairs laundry closet.

Most of all it had to be filled with light and feel airy. The house originally as dark inside. Todd was shocked and concerned about the number of windows I wanted to put in. I found a house near boston that was being torn down with high end windows only a few years old. Most of the windows from that large two story house have been put into this smaller one story house. If you look at the exterior walls you'll see there isn't a lot of wall space, which in turn created some design challenges, like where to put the tv.

I'm so happy with the end result and I hope you enjoy it and the details make your stay easy and comfortable.

1st time to the island

  • 5 of 5

Our family of four visited MV from Texas knowing little about the island. Property is clean, updated and a very central location. Julie was phenomenal. She is quick to respond and proactive with suggestions. She provided some beach chairs that were very helpful. Great back patio to grill out and have a glass of vino. Exactly a 1 mile walk from ferry/shops. Just be aware the property is on a main artery. We rented bikes, jumped off the "Jaws" bridge, hit different beaches, did 1/2 fishing charter which all led to a memorable vacation. Thanks Julie.

Great property and location is very convenient!

  • 5 of 5

Julie provides everything that one needs to have a comfortable stay. She is always available if you have questions. The house was immaculate. Kitchen is modern and well-equipped. There's a new washer and dryer. The outdoor shower, the fenced-in yard, and screened-in porch all add to the charm of the house. Nice details with the flooring and bathrooms. Pet-friendly too!

The house has been upgraded with extraordinary attention to distinctive features

  • 5 of 5

The house was extremely clean and very comfortable for my family that included 4 children under 10 and 4 adults. There is a fenced in backyard where the kids could play when they weren't at one of MV's beaches and a screened in porch perfect for relaxing with a good book. All appliances are new, including the washer and dryer that was put to good use. The house is an easy 15 minute walk to downtown Vineyard Haven and many beautiful neighborhoods. It is located directly on the bus route which will stop in both directions right in front of the house. Julie was helpful from the moment we contracted for our week last January right up to our departure at the end of the week. We highly recommend staying here.

Beautifully renovated home a short walk from the center of Vineyard Haven.

  • 4 of 5

You could leave your car behind and get around the island on the busses that stop nearby or on a bicycle using the bike paths. Our dog loved the completely fenced and secure backyard and we all loved the amazing outdoor shower. The owner is very attentive and available to answer questions. The only negative is the street noise but it's barely noticeable if you're running the AC or out on the screened in back porch.
