New York City-based restaurateur Keith McNally found the land for his vacation home, Windy Gates in Chilmark, while riding a bicycle through the area.  What followed was a farm house on a four-acre lot where McNally and his children can enjoy time together. McNally raises his own pigs, chickens, ducks, goats, and lambs.  He also makes goat cheese, keeps up orchards for apples, peaches, cherries and plums, and grows berries and vegetables.

The home is furnished with reclaimed wood and flea market finds which McNally found in markets in France and America.  The door frames were built to fit doors that he had found at market.  He also used an L-shaped red leather banquet, bistro glasses, zinc countertops, and a huge farm table.  The plank floors and tea stained walls are beautiful, and it is apparent that McNally worked with his usual attention to detail.  ENJOY!
