This idyllic award winning design home exquisitely decorated with a blend of antiques and contemporary furniture was completed for the summer 2007. It is set in a beautiful meadow on the outskirts of Edgartown. Recently added is a solar heated salt chlorinated 16 ft X 32 ft inground pool landscaped with cabana with half bath available for exclusive use by guests at 23 Jennie Lane.
The luxurious 3000 square foot living area features 10-12 foot ceilings, a spacious living room and a sun/family room with a surround sound entertainment center. The dining area seats 8-10 and is conveniently placed with access to the fully equipped kitchen with top of the line appliances including two dishwashers.
A lovely country porch overlooking the meadow on the sunset side provides a wonderful setting for relaxing in a hammock or country rockers after a day at the beach or touring the island. The blue stone patio allows for great outdoor dining with a 6 person hot tub for gazing at the stars on those clear Vineyard nights.
Newly added for 2011 is a recreation/entertainment room. Included is an elliptical machine and stationary bike, table tennis, surround sound high definition TV. Great for those days that weather might limit outdoor activity or just a get away from the main stream of the house activity.
Thank you for the most peaceful & comfortable vacation we have ever had. Your home is amazing - so pristine and beautiful. Betty Jean, your presence nearby was a constant comfort & we loved getting to know you and see you at work in your garden. This truly has been a "home away from home" for us. The beaches were amazing but even better was coming home, making a pot of tea & sitting in the living room & looking our your beautiful windows. Lucas & Alex will not forget our friendly flock of turkeys and of course the afternoons playing ball in the pool. It's hard to leave... but we take so many wonderful memories w/us.
Bill and Betty Jean started planning to build this house shortly after they added the studio to the guest house already built on the property. The plan was to have a retirement home with the ability to generate income to keep the property constantly updated and renewed. Now that the plan has actually come into an actuality it has fulfilled our wildest expectations.
Martha's Vineyard was the perfect location and having Betty Jean's sister there made it an actual possiblity that would never have come to be. Her unique and creative ideas were the cornerstone for this wonderful property and all it has become.
The home in the meadow is a perfect place to relax and enjoy the quiet natural loveliness of the island after a wonderful day of island activities. Sitting in the hot tub enjoying the starfilled sky and sounds of nature all around make it a marvelous end to a fun filled day on the Vineyard. The solar heated salt chlorinated pool also provides a wonderful way to spend family time after a busy day. The newly added rec/entertainment room is a great place to start the day with exercise and end it with a movie or game of table tennis.
