The best of both worlds, we are located in a quiet residential neighborhood, yet a 5 minute car ride brings you to the beach and/or action in town.
This raised ranch is nestled on a quiet 1/3+ acre with a private backyard, surrounded by many trees. Going up 7 steps from the front door, brings you to the living room and fully-applianced eat-in kitchen. Down the hall from the living room is the main bathroom, directly across from two bedrooms, one bedroom with 2 twin sized beds, the other with a doube bed. And at the end of the hall is the new bedroom suite, with queen bed, it's own TV and bathroom. The house is cooled by a 'whole house fan', and for the cool Vineyard nights, there are blankets, comforters, and individual room thermostats for electric heat.
Off the kitchen facing the woods, is a large deck, where you might enjoy the peace, privacy and your morning coffee or evening glass of wine. The deck stairs lead down to the brick patio, the picnic table and charcoal grill. And off the patio is the outdoor shower with hot an cold water.
On the home's lower level (just finished) is the laundry room with washer and dryer (or enjoy the fresh air scent of clothes dried outdoors on the line) and another living space with its own TV.
Buses to the beach and/or towns are 1-2 blocks away. Bustling Oak Bluffs center has restaurants, movies, the nation's first carousel, shopping, bars, and is the summer port of the ferries. Here also, is the town beach and (separated) the Oak Bluffs harbor with rental boats, jet skis, and parasailing, fishing charters, and fresh fish.
Enjoy the best of all worlds. Our home is private and very quiet, away from all the bustle in town. Yet numerous activities are but a short distance away. Nautical interests? Oak Bluffs harbor, in town, offers charter fishing, cruising, jet skis, boat launching ramp; para-sailing is also available. Eastville, Oak Bluffs and State beaches are each within a mile from our home; all three beaches are public, clean, and face the calm waters of Nantucket Sound. Atlantic Ocean beaches with surf are a little further away. Want to get away from the water? Take a free tour of the winery; head to town for dinner and a movie; stop off for a cocktail after. Theater, movies, dance, night club, art galleries, shopping, nature trails, horse back riding, golfing, tennis courts, kite flying, numerous restaurants are all within short drives or bus rides.
