Contemporary 3-bedroom house centrally located in Chilmark. Architect-designed and craftsman-built. Split level home contains master bedroom suite with king sized bed and attached spa (hot tub, sauna, walk-in shower) and 2 additional bedrooms and full bathrooms. House comfortably sleeps 8 + and is particularly suited to multi-generational groups or two families wanting to vacation together. Central A/C. In addition to the 3 bedrooms, there are 3 sleeping lofts and a large and quiet study with desk space for two+. Situated on a beautifully landscaped lot with a large lawn, this property can easily accommodate 2 families. The well designed layout affords each family some privacy in 2 separate sleeping areas. Comfortable living room with flat screen TV, fireplace and games/puzzles galore. Fabulous water views of Menemsha Pond can be seen from the roof deck. Though the property is walking distance to Chilmark Chocolates, the Chilmark Store, Library and the Chilmark Community Center (tennis, day camp and cultural activities) it maintains a quiet country feel. As a renter, you will have access to the two 'residents only' Chilmark ocean beaches: beautiful Lucy Vincent and Squibnocket.
A typical day at the Boston Hill Getaway: To start your day, walk to the Chilmark Store, buy your morning coffee 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. Barbecue your dinner on a gas grill while enjoying the view from the deck. After dinner, climb the spiral staircase to the spacious roof deck to watch a beautiful sunset over Menemsha Pond, then hang out in the comfortable living room talking or enjoying a movie on the large flat screen tv.
There are chairs, table and an umbrella on the roof deck and cocktails and brunches are nice to have there.
Space Well Designed for Two Families: As noted above, the interior of this 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.
An Open Feel With a Lot of 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.
Vineyard increasingly active in the off-season.

With leaves down in fall until spring, you can see everything better and go down intriguing roads.

Why Steve Seckler chose Chilmark
Unlike many other 'summer' houses on MV, this house was built as a home. The owner 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.
Guestbook comments from the owner
Our stay at your unique home on Martha's Vineyard was a delight from the beginning to the end. Since your home is a "one of a kind home" and built for your family,it is both tasteful and warm. It felt as if we were visiting a friend's home rather than a sterile renting. The kitchen and dining room were of special pleasure. Every item required for cooking or serving our extended family were available. While all of the bedrooms were comfortable, the master bedroom with its fine linens, sauna, and separate deck made us feel as if we never wanted to leave. Also,the bedroom's location allowed us some privacy.
We appreciated the beach chairs and umbrellas left for our use. While the beaches on the Vineyard are worth a visit, I loved sitting on your deck looking at the flowers and listening to the birds. The location of your home was most convenient to shopping and the beach.
Once gain, thank you.
