new england Coastal Domus Architects, inc. From Martha's Vineyard to Aspen, homes by Domus, Inc. sparkle in their breathtaking settings. "I consider it a privilege to be welcomed into a client's world," says Domus, Inc. founder and president Charles Rolando, creator of spectacular residences from upscale townhouses in Boston to mountain lodges in Colorado, from contemporary homes in Concord and Carlisle to traditional ocean-front retreats on Martha's Vineyard and Nantucket. "To work alongside them in such a personal way, often for more than a year, is one of the pleasures of my profession." His projects have run the gamut from famously elaborate to the simple saltbox, but they have a common sensitivity for the landscape and sense of proportion, maximizing the views. He customizes each home as a good tailor custom-fits a suit, and the results are as unique and as special as each client. Now located in Concord, MA, for more than 40 years the low-key Rolando has quietly designed and built personalized, unequaled homes for Cher, John Denver, Count Philip Von Prising and Don Johnson, to name a few of his celebrity clients. With his latest endeavor, Rolando has given up flying under the radar. Islanders are taking notice with his current project on Martha's Vineyard, which cleverly blends traditional design elements with contemporary detailing to bring modern luxury to the waterfront. This client's vision incorporates soaring spaces, graceful curves, and intersecting beams, with the desire to have amazing coastal views from every room, defining this extraordinary property. "Happy clients at the end of a project is always the goal," says Rolando. Extreme satisfaction is achieved with "foresight, imagination, and the ability to interpret the client's desires and present a direct translation of their desires into the design." Rolando believes that such successful results blossom from a trusting and open relationship with each client, and he takes quite seriously the trust they place in him, not only with confidentiality, but also with the details of their daily lives. "It is with a generosity of heart with which a client will share with me the essential elements and the nuances of how they wish to enjoy their homes, and trusting me with this knowledge will of course provide the direction of my design, and will enhance the time they spend there." 555 Virginia Road, Suite 203 Concord, MA 01742 978.369.0077 www.domus-inc.com Westport, CT $11,998,000 MLS# 98515405, Michelle&Company, 203.454.4663 Marblehead, MA $5,850,000 MLS# 71139325, Jack Attridge, 781.883.3200 Greenwich, CT $5,250,000 MLS# 81203, Lynne Morell, 203.550.1665 Cape Cod/Marstons Mills, MA $3,299,000 MLS# 21200185, Ryan McGinn Team, 508.207.5868 Cape Cod/Mashpee, MA $2,795,000 MLS# 21200158, Barbara Lunn, 508.367.5202 raveis.com I NTERN AT IONAL "The Best Website in Real Estate" For more information on these and other luxury homes or to speak to an Exceptional Properties Specialist, call 877.298.2780.
