Description

Description

Relax and unwind in this spacious, light-filled architect's home, nestled on five private wooded acres near the Tisbury Great Pond. With access to Long Point Beach, and close proximity to bike paths, walking trails and horse farms, the house is a serene retreat from the bustle of regular life.

The first floor of the home has a large chef's eat-in kitchen, fully equipped with a 6-burner Garland stove, appliances (waffle maker, panini press, Cuisinart, coffeemaker, etc.) and table and cookware galore. A large outdoor grill off the kitchen makes cookouts a breeze, and you can enjoy your meals in the kitchen, on one of 2 outdoor dining tables, or at the formal dining room table which seats 8. Help yourself to herbs from the small garden just steps from the kitchen.

The double-height living/dining room has a fireplace for chilly nights, a grand piano, books, games and puzzles, and plenty of room for lounging. The sunroom next to the living room can be a 4th bedroom as needed. It has beautiful wraparound views of the lawn and flowering trees, a very comfortable Design Within Reach queen sofabed, flat screen TV and DVD player, en suite bathroom, and plenty of closet and drawer space. The back deck is a perfect place to bask in the afternoon sun in the chaise lounge or Adirondack chairs, surrounded by mint and flowers. The outdoor shower off the back deck allows for post-beach showering. The first floor is fully accessible to people using canes and walkers.

Upstairs, a suspended walkway connects the three bedrooms, all with views of the trees surrounding the house. The skylit master bedroom is octagonal, with wraparound views of treetops, queen bed, desk, and flat screen TV and DVD player. It has a small balcony, perfect for enjoying your morning coffee, and en suite bathroom. On the other side of the walkway, you'll find two additional bedrooms, each with 2 twin beds, a shared balcony, and lovely views. The bedrooms have large closets and chests of drawers, and bedding to convert a set of twin beds into a King is available. A shared bathroom has a bathtub/shower and separate toilet room.

The house is perfect for entertaining and relaxing. It has 2 TVs/DVD players with DirectTV and a bluetooth-enabled sound system and a turntable. There is a freestanding hammock on the lawn, and a cozy seating area on the front porch. We provide beach chairs, beach umbrellas, boogie boards, a cooler, plenty of beach towels, and a rolling collapsible beach cart to easily carry everything from your car to the beach.

You are very close to miles of walking trails and bike paths, and we provide a beach pass for Long Point Wildlife Refuge, one of the most beautiful beaches on the Vineyard. Only a 15 minute drive from the house, Long Point has miles of pristine ocean beach with great surf, as well as a swimming beach on the Tisbury Great Pond that is fabulous for kids, and where you can rent kayaks and paddle boards. We are a 1/2 mile from the State Forest bike/running path with a great 12-mile loop, and very close to the 1.5 mile woodland trail to Sipiessa, a small quiet beach and boat launch on the Great Pond. We are 3 miles from the small town of West Tisbury, which has a wonderful library with an excellent DVD collection and an amazing children's room. Explore the West Tisbury farmer's market on Saturdays, pick up homemade breakfast and lunch at 7a, or peruse Alley's General Store. Our house book has detailed information about places to go and things to do on the Island.

Ferry reservation available for the available week in August, please email for details.

    MVY unique architectural treasure

    We are a Boston family of four (kids are 14 & 19) with the good fortune to have stayed at this house since 2016 and will return in 2020. We are long time MVY summer renters, and this is by far the best property we have ever stayed at on the island.

    The architecture is unique, memorable, and conducive to both relaxing and having fun. The kitchen is fantastically equipped, from the ice-making refrigerator to the commercial gas stove with salamander broiler, to all the pots, pats, dishes, and utensils you could ever need.

    Outdoors the house features multiple decks and chairs, an open air shower, two dining tables, gas grill, an herb garden, and a large lawn surrounded by trees. Indoors the high-ceilinged great room features a fireplace, grand piano, a more formal dining area, and multiple comfy seating choices.

    Bedrooms are smaller in scale compared to the common areas, but are big enough with lots of natural light from multiple windows and sliding doors. Master bedroom with octagonal layout (like much of the house) is unique with sweeping views of the surrounding land, and a great rain shower in the ensuite bath.

    Great location, just off the West Tisbury/Edgartown road and minutes to Longpoint Reservation, our favorite beach on the island, and a quick drive to the Alley's/farmer's market/artisan fair area.

    Owners are responsive and easy to work with.

    I would add that our family views it as a privilege to stay at this beautiful house for two weeks, and we treat it with care and respect it deserves, as should all those lucky enough to stay here.

    Highest recommendation.

    Longpoint area restful and energizing retreat

    We are a Boston family of four (kids are 11 & 16) with the good fortune to stay at this house for the first time in August 2016, and we will be returning this August as well. We are long time MV summer renters, and this is by far the best property we have ever stayed at on the island,. Truly a home.

    The architecture is unique, memorable, and conducive to both relaxing and having fun. The kitchen is incredibly well equipped, from the ice-making refrigerator to the truly restaurant-level gas stove with salamander broiler, to all the pots, pats, dishes, and utensils you could ever need.

    Multiple decks, an outdoor shower, two outdoor dining tables, an herb garden, and large lawn compliment the high-ceilinged great room with fireplace and grand piano.

    Bedrooms are smaller in scale compared to the common areas, but are plenty big and boast lots of light from multiple windows and sliding doors. Master bedroom with octagonal layout (like much of the house) is unique with sweeping views of the surrounding land, and a great rain shower in the private bath.

    Perfect location, just off the main road and minutes to Longpoint, our favorite beach on the island, and very close to Alley's/farmer's market/artisan fair area. Pretty quick to Morning Glory as well.

    Owners are responsive and responsible and easy to work with.

    Deep Bottom Paradise

    Heading into our 6th year at this stunning house, we are so grateful to have found it! The architecture, furnishings and layout of the property could be in a magazine. Bright and open with lots of glass and natural wood, a living-dining area with soaring ceilings and skylights, balconies off the bedrooms, and lots of outdoor areas, the house is designed for modern living at its best. The rental is super well-equipped - from the kitchen appliances (including a fabulous commercial Garland stove) to beach gear (boogie boards, chairs, towels) and sporting goods (fat-tired bicycles and a couple of kayaks!). And the location is perfect - Deep Bottom Cove literally leads into Great Tisbury Pond; Long Point (great Trustees beach with both ocean and pond swimming) and Sepiessa Point (boat launch and fantastic trails) are right there; the town of West Tisbury is an easy bike ride and this neighborhood is pretty convenient to both Up-and -Down Island attractions. We wouldn't stay anywhere else even if we won Powerball! show more show less

    Heaven on Martha's Vineyard

    My family has spent time at this house each summer for many years. Without a doubt, our time there is the highlight of our year. The house is absolutely spectacular - incredibly unique, modern architecture, beautifully and comfortably furnished and appointed with everything you need for your stay on the Vineyard. Tons of natural light, glass doors and windows throughout. Beautiful hardware floors. Incredible, expansive landscaping and outdoor furnishings make this house an incredible place to stay. Huge kitchen with everything you need to create amazing meals. Beautiful working fireplace. The house is perfectly secluded but ideally located at the same time.

    Owners are incredibly responsive, helpful and accommodating.

    We've stayed at this wonderful home for over 6 years now. It boasts wonderful privacy and incrdible convenience to the bike path, ocean, Tisbury library and town center.
    We thoroughly enjoy our daily paddles on Tisbury Great Pond, and running along the quiet roads to the beach for a quiet morning sun salutation makes this spot idyllic.
    We cannot recommend this home away from home enough!

    We've been renting this amazing house for the past six or so years, for three weeks each time. As long time renters on the Vineyard, the Cape, Nantucket, Maine, and northern California, this is easily the best of all (why else would we keep returning?). The pictures cannot do the house justice (we keep trying ourselves). It's not only distinguished architecturally, but the light is astonishing. It's as private as one could wish, on the part of the Vineyard that we think the best, and there's water access within two minutes walk, with kayaks, and a direct route to the ocean. (Not to mention the most incredible beach on the island, Long Point) And here's the big secret: it's very reasonably priced. Compared to more ordinary homes, none of them with this kind of property or privacy, which charge way more, this is a great deal. Very well equipped and immaculate. Three main decks, so you get to choose the right time of day for the right light and/or shade, AND a roof deck (perfect for drinks and appetizers before dinner).

    We love this house, and feel rather proprietary about it.

    Our family has been seasonal residents on Martha's Vineyard for more than 30 years. This house was designed by our father, Lee, who was famous for his sense of humor and his op-eds in the Vineyard Gazette.

    What is special about this property?
    We love this house for so many reasons. The main living room has so many windows and skylights that you almost don't need to go outside. It's elegant and very comfortable at the same time. It's decorated with art from the family's travels around the world, as well as original art by the architect and his daughter. The house is down a half-mile dirt road, and up against a finger of the Tisbury Great Pond, so it feels very secluded.

    What is special about your town?
    We're only a couple of miles away from West Tisbury, which has the Saturday farmer's market and the beautiful library with its great fiction, DVD, cookbook, and childrens section. (If you have a CLAMS card you can check books and DVDs out.) We're a 1/2 mile bike ride to the State Forest bike path, a 15 minute drive from the airport, and a short drive away from State Road restaurants and shops. Most importantly, we are only 15 minutes from beautiful Long Point beach, which is our favorite beach on the Island, in part due to the swimming beach at the Pond, which is great for kids.
