Description

Description

Welcome to this wonderful home! With 3+ bedrooms, three full bathrooms, a jacuzzi and sauna, WIFI, comfortable office/study area, central air conditioning, and more, this house will make your vacation the perfect place to ''land'' after exploring the many treasures of Martha's Vineyard. The house comfortably sleeps 8+ and is particularly suited to multi-generational groups or two families wanting to vacation together.

This contemporary 3-bedroom house is centrally located in Chilmark, tucked in off of State Road, yet a short walk to the Chilmark Store, Community Center, etc.

Architect-designed and craftsman-built, the split-level home contains a master bedroom suite with a king sized bed and attached spa (hot tub, sauna, walk-in shower) and 2 additional bedrooms with access to full bathrooms. In addition to the 3 bedrooms, there are 3 sleeping lofts and a large and quiet study with generous desk space for spreading out. Situated on a beautifully landscaped lot with a large lawn, this property can easily accommodate 2 families. The well designed layout with a Master ''wing,'' affords each family some privacy in 2 separate sleeping areas.

Guests can enjoy the comfortable living room with flat screen TV, fireplace in winter, and games/puzzles galore. Or take in the fabulous water views and sunsets over Menemsha Pond from the elegant roof deck.

As a renter, you will have access to the two 'residents only' Chilmark ocean beaches: beautiful Lucy Vincent and Squibnocket.

A Typical Day and the Boston Hill Getaway: To start your day, walk to the Chilmark Store, buy your morning coffee, croissant, and newspaper, and sit on one of the rocking chairs on the porch. When you get tired of people-watching, cross the street and find some good reading material at Chilmark’s outstanding public library. Then head to one of the best beaches on the Island, Lucy Vincent Beach with your sandwiches from the Chilmark Store. After a day on LVB, return to the Boston Hill Getaway, and rinse off in the outdoor shower. Before dinner, enjoy cocktails and the spectacular view of Menemsha Pond from the roof deck seating area. Barbecue your dinner on a gas grill area, then eat at the large outdoor table or inside in the dining area. After dinner, hang out in the comfortable living room talking or enjoying a movie on the large flat screen tv.

Space is Well Designed for Two Families: We often rent to grandparents, adult children and grandchildren, and everyone can find the space and privacy that they need! As noted above, the interior of the Boston Hill Getaway has a master bedroom wing with its own bath, spa area and office. The spa connects to the master bedroom but is also accessible from a separate entrance. The spa can also be closed off to maintain privacy in the master bedroom. Next to the master bedroom is a large study area and a full bath which contains a sleeping loft. There is also a deck off of the master bedroom. On the other side of the house is a guest wing with two bedrooms and a shared full bathroom. Each bedroom offers a loft area with sleeping accommodations. There is a small deck off each of these bedrooms, with direct access from the outdoor shower through large sliding glass doors.

Open Feel with Natural Light: The living room is adjacent to a large open deck. The dining area and the kitchen are a few steps up from the living room. This separation creates a private feel in both the dining area and living room while preserving the openness of the first floor (eat dinner peacefully while the children play in the living room.) There are partial water views from the dining room, from the deck off the master bedroom and most notably, from the roof deck where you can enjoy a beautiful sunset.

Other features which make the Boston Hill Getaway a great vacation home include: an easily accessible basement (for bicycle storage), a wind sculpture on the lawn, and quiet dirt roads which lead down to the scenic fishing village of Menemsha. Groceries are a short and picturesque 15-20 minute drive away, with Lucy Vincent beach on the way - winter beach walks are bracing and beautiful - as well as many Land Bank properties which offer hiking and walking trails.

OFF-SEASON

The Vineyard is increasingly active in the off-season, and Islanders know that the winter months are just as beautiful as the summertime.

The winter is a good time for a quiet retreat; escape to a cozy, private niche of the Island to pursue writing, music, explore your photography or painting; yoga, qi gong, tai chi classes, meditation gatherings, massage, dance, aerobics, pilates, and much more to make your winter relaxing.

With leaves down in fall until spring, even while driving along the main roads you will notice houses back in the trees which are not visible in the summertime, which may lead you down roads you otherwise would have missed!

There are two major film festivals on the Island in the off-season. MV Independent Film Festival in March at the Chilmark Community Center and MV International Film Festival over Labor Day weekend at the state of the art Film Center. Hotels fill up for these events.

A marvelously habitable house, perfectly located. It's just far enough in from the road to be perfectly quiet, yet close to Lucy Vincent Beach and Menemsha. We lost count of the many decks -- at least four -- which means that there's always a choice between sunshine and shade, company or privacy. Loved the outdoor shower, and were grateful for the sauna. We were just two in house that probably could hold a huge extended family, yet the space always made us feel cozy. The home office, elegantly set up for two, made the intrusions of desk-work into our time off almost pleasant. The outdoors -- lawn, garden, a few shade trees, a field beyond -- was beautiful to behold, nourishing for the soul. We weren't quite as wild about the kitchen setup as some other guests, but that's because we were cooking crazy-ambitious Asian recipes with woks and what not. We never did figure out how to use the TV for anything more complicated than network broadcasts -- I would count that as an advantage. Who wants to watch TV in such a lovely place? The hosts were kindness itself. Martha's Bikes delivered to our door. Would be happy -- grateful -- to return. show more show less

Our first trip to Martha's and we stayed in this home. It is located in a great area of the island, convenient to amenities. It is close to Lucy Vincent beach, our favorite on the island. The rooftop deck is perfect for watching the sunset, if you are not at Menemsha Beach with the crowds. Kitchen is very well appointed and we were very comfortable during our stay. The owners even helped us reserve ferry tickets for the trip. Highly recommend these accommodations!

First off, I want to highly recommend this house to anyone looking for a great getaway vacation experience with superb amenities close by in one of the best areas in all of Martha's Vineyard. The house is spacious and beautifully designed allowing for everything you need to relax and recharge. The kitchen is equipped with all necessary items allowing you to cook any meal and entertain a large family. The master bedroom has a beautiful spa connected to it in case you would like to enjoy the jacuzzi or steam room. The sunsets from the roof are spectacular as you have a beautiful view of the surrounding area and water. Everything within and outside the house aims to please all the way down to the linens, towels, spa, comfortable furniture, beautiful lawn, flowers, multiple decks, grill, beach gear(umbrella/chairs,) Internet and close driving distance to great beaches. The house is also within walking distance to the general store, Chilmark Chocolates and The Chilmark Tavern. To boot, the owner is very attentive and does their best to ensure you are set up accordingly to enjoy your stay. As I said before, I would highly recommend this house to any family looking for a great Vineyard experience. show more show less

My husband & I greatly enjoyed our stay on Martha's Vineyard in large part because of this house and it's location. The layout and design of the house is a fascinating architectural work of art. The house is located just off the main road and yet close to dirt roads that are perfect for running and biking and we did both. The bike shop in Vineyard Haven very kindly dropped off bikes and picked them up again at the end of our stay. We spent many hours watching the stars from the roof deck, reading peacefully and being mesmerized by the beautiful wind spinner in the yard. I have recommended this house to all of our relatives who are close enough to make a visit. Thank you! show more show less

We had a lovely stay at this cozy retreat. When it rained we snuggled on the couches as we looked out over the gorgeous greenery and listened to gentle sounds of rain on the roof. There were many good bedrooms, most of which conveniently had an associated bathroom, so there was plenty of space for everyone. The kitchen and dining room in the center of the house truly felt like the heart of the home. We all congregated there often, giving us great family bonding time. The house was stocked with everything we needed, so our vacation couldn't have been made simpler. Best of all, the house is tucked away in a quiet pocket, but still very centrally location in Chilmark. Great house in a great location! show more show less

This is a very well thought out home, filled with all the amenities anyone would love! We had 4 adults and 4 children staying and everyone was comfortable and happy inside working on a puzzle or outside in the beautifully private yard.We especially loved looking at the stars on the roof deck at night.....or having coffee in the morning.The house is very clean and maintained well.I would gladly recommend this property to a friend or relative!

Unlike many other 'summer' houses on MV, this house was built as a home. The owners lived year round in the house for over 25 years and have been active members of the Chilmark community and in non-profit causes on Martha's Vineyard. Prior to that, they spent many summers renting properties around Chilmark.

As a result, the property has been very well cared for and the owners continue to care a great deal about the experience that family members and renters have when they stay at the house.

What is special about this property?
This fully appointed home is tucked away off a dirt road, yet accessible to all Chilmark has to offer. The sprawling and lush lawn, with wildflowers dotting the edge by a stone wall, makes for an perfect spot to kick back and relax.

What is special about your town?
The vistas and uniqueness of Chilmark make it a popular destination for all that are lucky enough to discover it. With stone walls, grazing cows and horse, rolling hills and wildflower meadows, it is easy to understand why vacationers get ''hooked.''

Beyond Chilmark, Martha's Vineyard offers a vibrant, year-round cultural, intellectual, and aesthetic paradise. We are happy to suggest sites and activities -- indoors and outdoors -- to meet anyone's interests!
