Description

Description

Rare to the market, this is a very special, cherished, family home and beachfront property. The house is not fancy, but thoroughly charming throughout, and perfect for a family with children and their guests. The house comfortably sleeps 8 in 4 bedrooms.

Fronting onto Vineyard Sound, the large private beach is perfect for swimming, kayaking and picnics, and includes a secluded seating area surrounded by a dune of fragrant beach roses. The vista faces south with magnificent views of Martha's Vineyard, Vineyard Haven and Oak Bluffs, and the steady stream of boat traffic in and out of nearby Green Pond. The swimming area is protected, and the swimming is fantastic. The best. Bring over your morning coffee, or sit with an evening cocktail and watch the osprey dive for his dinner. The variety of birds passing overhead or scurrying up and down the beach is a constant.

Built in 1930, the house has a large central living room with a working fireplace and interior windows that open on the enclosed front porch. The porch has 8 French windows that swing out to the front yard. The sunroom off the porch has 10 windows for great cross-breezes and doubles as the television room.

The back hall, with a pantry and a half-bath, leads out to the back yard, or into the fully-stocked cook's kitchen with plenty of counter space and a 6-burner Viking gas range and convection oven.

The dining room is lovely, and squeezes 8, or even 10, around the table. There's a piano for summertime practice, and for singing after supper.

There's a small bedroom with a double bed in a private area off the kitchen, and 3 main bedrooms, one with a king and the other two each with 2 twins, and two full baths upstairs, overlooking the beach and the Sound. You can hear the ocean waves each night as you sleep.

Clean and meticulously maintained, the decor is vintage throughout the house, and includes the original hardwood colonial furniture from the first owner (1930) in nearly every room.

The house uniquely features awnings on all the windows. These keep the house cool and shaded, even on the hottest days. Amenities include a dishwasher, washer/dryer, cable TV, Internet, a BBQ grill, and an outdoor shower - and linens are provided.

The large back yard is fenced and includes multiple seating areas, a croquet set, an outdoor grill and picnic table, and a small vegetable and herb garden that needs to be watered.

A fully enclosed changing room and outdoor shower keeps sand out of the house.

The flag on the front lawn needs to be raised and lowered each day.

The area is off the main road (Menahaunt), with lots of walkers and bike-riders in the summer. The house is less than mile from Falmouth Heights, and three miles from the downtown.
