This West Tisbury family compound is located on 5 private acres of beautiful, professionally landscaped land with stone walls, patio and lush gardens. It is perfect if you are looking for a vacation that accommodates privacy, family, guests, is close to the beach, freshwater swimming, biking and hiking. Built in 2002, the main house is approx. 3500 square feet living area and sits on 5+ acres of wooded land. The 2 story guest house is next door (steps away) and is approx. 1200 square feet with a 2nd floor deck overlooking the entire yard.
MAIN HOUSE: The 1st floor entry opens to a 2-story vaulted living room with wood burning fireplace, game and card table, flooded with light from a four-tier wrought iron chandelier and an entire wall of French doors and windows. Adjacent to the living room is a spacious dining room with seating for 8 plus. This custom home features state of the art gourmet eat-in kitchen with granite counters, stainless appliances, warm pine cabinets and beaded board walls.

The 2nd Floor has a large master suite and sundeck overlooking the grounds, along with king bed, walk in closet with full washer/dryer and 40' HD LCD TV for late night. A huge master bath has separate vanities, large walk-in shower with body sprayer, and claw-footed soaking tub with princess hand shower. The 2nd upstairs bedroom has a queen bed and is perfect for a teenager or adult couple. The 3rd upstairs kids bedroom has 2 twins and a pull out trundle for that visiting friend or cousin.

The Guest House is the real bonus, especially if you need room for another family. It has 3 zone A/C and is about a dozen steps off the main house kitchen entryway. It is absolutely perfect for relatives or friends because it was built and lived in as a separate home before the main house was completed in 2002. The Guest House has 1 bedroom (Queen) upstairs, 1 bedroom (King) downstairs w/ 40' LCD TV, 1 full bath and a bonus sleeper sofa in the living room. Because it previously served as a main residence, it has a fully equipped eat-in kitchen (stove top, oven, dishwasher, refrigerator, icemaker and all the necessary cookware and electrical appliances). It also has an expandable dining room table and a wall mounted 40' flat screen LCD TV.
The Guest house also has a spacious 2nd story sundeck, with table, umbrella and 4 chairs (one is a rocker) and overlooks the backyard as well as it’s own outdoor shower to allow for a convenient return from the beach for two families.
Games and Extras: We have stocked up on the essentials for home activities; bikes, beach chairs, beach games, beach coolers, boogie boards, beach blankets and towels and an array of backyard games (such as volleyball, badminton, soccer nets). In the basement, the kids will find a 8.4' wide private screening theatre (cable, DVD, Net Flix and Wii) as well as ping pong and full size brand new pool table.
The Backyard: With 5 acres, there is plenty of room to run around, but we groomed out a large play area, surrounded by a stone wall and away from any road or cars. Your kids can safely run, play soccer, volleyball or badminton. If you are cooking, feel free to pick some fresh, organic vegetables from our seasonal garden, where we grow vine ripe tomatoes, lettuce, strawberries and raspberries (fall).
The Beach: We live on the 1 mile road to Long Point Beach (a left out our driveway), which is undoubtedly Martha Vineyard's best beach. Long Point Wildlife Refuge is 600 acres of pristine beach abutting a freshwater lake. It is the best of both worlds because you can swim the ocean and the shallow lake all within 50 yards of each other.
Biking: Our road abuts miles of bike trails. If you get the urge to bike to Edgartown, it’s only about 5 miles off our driveway and on a safe, clearly marked designated bike path set back off the road and awesome for a family adventure.
If you have an interest in a truly spectacular property and vacation, drop us a note for more info. This compound offers it all; modern, spacious, private 5+ acres, on the road to the beach and a bike path away from town! All rooms are fully furnished with extra pillows, linens, blankets, even fans if you want to keep the windows open. West Tisbury is centrally located from all the best sights and towns; 5 miles from Edgartown, 7 miles from Oak Bluffs, 6 miles from Vineyard Haven and a short ride to the Aquinnah Cliffs or incredible “ocean sunset and wine” evening on Menemsha beach. You won't regret this vacation. Please, serious inquiries only!
