Description

Description

Located on the Edgartown/West Tisbury line in a three acre meadow, this design-winning home has three bedrooms and three and 1/2 baths. Beautifully decorated in contemporary/antique combination, it serves as a perfect place to vacation on the island.

On the first floor is a huge dining/living room with 11 foot window pane ceiling with an island kitchen to the side. The kitchen is superbly equipped to fit the needs of any cook and has top of the line appliances including dual dishwashers. Also on the first floor is an entertainment room with a large flat screen television with surround sound. The huge master suite, with king bed and a master bath with a large walk-in shower and claw foot tub, are off the main living area just beyond a half bath laundry. On the second floor are two large bedrooms each with their own full bath. One bedroom has a queen bed and the other two twins.

The basement has been recently finished as a rec/entertainment room. It houses another large flat screen tv with surround sound and a queen sleeper sofa. For those rainy days, there is a ping pong table to entertain the entire family. Also located in this large room is an elliptical machine and a stationary bike, so you can get in your daily exercise.

Just off the master bedroom and the TV room is a large bluestone patio with well cared for perennial gardens and a barbecue with outdoor dining for eight as well as lounge chairs. For those wonderful Vineyard nights, there is a large hot tub perfect for enjoying the beautiful Vineyard sky. There is also a large farmers porch in front that is great for watching the sun set.

Located just on the other side of the driveway is a 16X32 foot salt chlorinated pool with solar heating. The large deck area provides plenty of lounging and sitting areas and a pool bathroom for your convenience. The house and pool are part of a compound that also has a guest house that has the use of the pool as well. Both houses are a distance apart with private and secluded areas with hot tubs and patios.

This house is perfect for a large family or two families who want to share the space. The sharing of the pool has never been a problem, and we have guests who have made friends and opt to return the next year together. If you are looking for a quiet retreat to return to after a busy day on the island, this house is perfect.

There are bike racks to handle six bikes. You can bike to Morning Glory Farm for local farm produce and fresh baked goods. It's only a ten minute drive to the Farmer's Market in West Tisbury. Available for your use if you have a vehicle that can transport them are kayaks for use in the Vineyard ponds. Depending upon availability, there is an option to book both this house and the guest house (see Property ID #27145) together for multiple family visits.
The nearest beach is Long Point, our favorite island beach, and South Beach is just a 12 minute drive away. For information on Long Point Beach, please visit http://www.weneedavacation.com/Beach/Long-Point-Beach-West-Tisbury/. The main road where the road to the property turns off has access to the bike path that leads to all points on the island. We are centrally located being 5 miles from each of the three main towns of Vineyard Haven, Oak Bluffs and Edgartown. Our guests truly enjoy the seclusion of the property and getting away from the hustle and bustle of the island activities after a busy day.

Outstanding!!

From the minute we arrived at this home, we knew we had made a good choice. The property is impeccably maintained and attractive, with a beautiful yard and a swimming pool. The house that we stayed in could not have been more lovely. Tastefully decorated, comfortable and clean. The kitchen is a gourmet style that allowed us to cook for ourselves on the nights that we just wanted to stay at home and enjoy a quiet evening. Plenty of sleeping arrangements, and the beds were like being at a luxury hotel.

Bill and Betty Jean were more that willing to tell us about the sites we should see and were available to give us a ride to the ferry on a day that a family member had to return home. The days that we stayed at the house were enjoyed at the pool and in the hot tub. It was a wonderful vacation from beginning to end. What made it so great was the place we stayed!! 5 star rating for sure!

Beautiful Getaway

My husband and I spent a wonderful week at this delightful rental. The house is so comfortable, lots of space, well equipped and has all the amenities of home. Our grandchildren visited for four days and loved the pool and outdoor jacuzzi. The owners, Bill and Betty Jean, are great people and live on the property. They are very accommodating and suggested lots of places for us to check out. If you're looking for a quiet place with all the comforts of home, then this is for you! We highly recommend this rental and will definitely return! show more show less

Perfect family retreat!

The pictures do not come close to beauty and tranquility of this property. The location was perfect, just 10 minutes to everything. When you pull up the driveway it's like your own private estate. Wild flower fields, green lawn and beautiful saltwater pool.

We rented this house for a family vacation with our grown children and grandchildren. It was perfect. Large, open, completely stocked kitchen, dining table for 10+. The house was tastefully decorated and immaculate with plenty of space for everyone to retreat to their own space. There was nothing missing. We wondered about hearing planes overhead being close to the airport, but never heard one. The owners are lovely people who were responsive and helpful in everything from the property to the best beaches for small children.

We had a wonderful week and would highly recommend this property. Denise and Roger P

Betty Jean and Bill bought the property in 1999 and began developing it as an eventual retirement home. Betty Jean was a school librarian in Texas and Bill did international consulting work in the development of retail marketing and design concepts. We are the parents of four wonderful children and grandparents to five unbelievable grandchildren who love coming to the Vineyard to visit when the houses aren't occupied. Betty Jean's sister was very influential in our decision to buy this property. As a real estate agent on the island she found the perfect spot and with her foresight we each developed three acres and began to fulfill our dreams. Her creativity designed the guest house and garage studio and the idea to provide a vacation home that would outshine the best and we began our journey. The main house was one of Coastal Living magazine's feature houses which we used as a basis for our present design. After nine years of managing projects and rentals from Texas, we completed the final projects of putting in the pool and finishing the basement in the main house as a recreation room. In 2009 Betty Jean retired and we moved to the island where Bill still continues occasional consulting and we are able to provide the unique ability to manage the property on site but still maintain a distance from the guests who enjoy the wonderful experience of vacationing in paradise.

What is special about this property?
The peaceful relaxing atmosphere of the homes in the meadow away from the crowded vacation towns on the island provide a perfect retreat for a quiet time after a busy day enjoying the marvelous activities that only Marsha's Vineyard can offer. Our guests enjoy the wonderful starlit sky from the private hot tub or a swim in the mineral pool heated by the sun. Each house has its own outdoor living space with a bluestone patio, barbecue and teak furniture. Most days our guests enjoy the wonderful breezes that drift across the meadow but on those few hot humid days that sometimes linger for a few days the houses have air conditioning. Even on a rainy day this home is cozy and friendly to all who stay here. Betty Jean and Bill are just a moment away to offer advice on the island's best or to have the pool and hot tubs sparkling and ready for your daily use while also ensuring the lawn, landscaping and property are kept in immaculate condition. Their presence is available when needed but most of the time out of sight.

What is special about your town?
Being on the outskirts of Edgartown on the West Tisbury line is a definite plus. We are 5 miles from each of the three main towns of Vineyard Haven, Oak Bluffs and Edgartown. Access to all three towns is a short drive entering from the back roads which avoids much of the heavier tourist traffic. Access to the Up island towns of West Tisbury, Chilmark and Aquinnah also avoids the heavier traveled roads. it truly is central to all that the island offers. Long Point Beach, South Beach, Farmer's Market, Morning Glory Farm. art galleries, the MV Agricultural Hall and Grange Hall are all just a few minutes away. The bike trail is accessible just at the entrance to the road that leads to the property and there are bike racks available for your bikes or rental bikes that can be there when you arrive. You can bike the many bike paths that wind across the island, or you can walk or ride the dirt roads that wander through the nearby Sheriff's Meadow. Also available are kayaks for use in the many Vineyard ponds if your car can be used to carry them. We try to provide you with a very special experience in vacation homes in a very special location.
