About Marin Street

I am a builder and carpenter. I'm married and have a beautiful 3.5 year old daughter and a soon to be born boy. I vacationed on the Vineyard my whole life, but only decided to settle here 12 years ago after meeting my now wife who is an Island native. I enjoy playing tennis, practising yoga, and playing classical guitar.

Marin Street purchased this house in 2005

Why Marin Street chose Chilmark

I bought this property because it was a rare opportunity to own and restore an antique (c.1786) house in its original setting. It is in the town of Chilmark which offers seclusion, the best beaches, but also easy access to down-island: it is only 20 minutes from the ferry terminal and 10 minutes from the grocery store.

I fell in love with the setting and undertook a 5 year, labor-of-love restoration, trying to be as faithful as possible to the historic nature of the house. All of the mouldings were fabricated using period hand planes. The windows and doors are all period reproduction units. The post and beam repairs were performed by the master carpenter and crew from Plymouth Plantation, the living historic village.

Most of all I enyoyed being surrounded by the natural wonders that I experienced during the five years of working on this house. I experienced some of the most peaceful moments of my life watching the moon rise over the trees, listening to the birds, and watching the wildlife (river otters, rabbits, turtles, ospreys...).

What makes this house unique

Lucy Vincent Beach , with its red clay cliffs and rolling sand dunes, is one of the most beautiful beaches in the world, and is only accessible by Chilmark residents and renters.

The house is surrounded by nature preserves, such as Menemsha Hills, and Peaked Hill, which offer the most striking views of the Island.

Enjoy restaurants, shops and sunsets at the historic fishing village of Menemsha (the setting for the movie 'Jaws') which is only 2 miles down the road.

The Chilmark Community Center is a great meeting place. (2 miles away) It has beautiful public tennis courts (3 clay, 2 hard), A world class international film festival and numerous local events. There are also activities and camps for kids.

Stunning is correct! For those who want a retreat from the crowds and away from the bustle of towns, this is the perfect place for you. Beautifully furnished and immaculate grounds made for an incredibly beautiful vacation. Hats off to this owner for his taste for the simplicity of life.

Serene and sumptuous

  • 5 of 5
This property is even more lovely than the pictures and description. It manages to be luxurious and serene without the clutter of a lot of rentals. Airy and spacious, appointed in a simple and gracious manner, both the farmhouse and guesthouse are beautifully laid out. If you're a space geek like me and you care about the arrangement of rooms and the flow of how space works in a site then you'll be in heaven here. You can find cozy and expansive, with areas for both privacy and quiet as well as convening spaces for gathering and play. The filtered green light under the boughs of trees on one side of the house was a perfect place for reading and eating. The large dining room table off the spacious kitchen can easily seat 10 people. And the decks were perfect for listening to the frogs and watching the stars. One night we saw 10 shooting stars in a row in a milky lit sky of soft air. There is a lotus pond and one day I meditated on a rock at its edge. In fact the whole property will beckon you to different spaces at different times. The outdoor shower is a divine way to return from nearby Lucy Vincent Beach-- one of the most beautiful you'll ever see. The owners were extremely friendly, helpful and relaxed. I couldn't recommend this property more highly.

Chilmark Idyll

  • 5 of 5
This is a charming property on an excellent and private part of the Vineyard. The owner was very helpful and found the property to be just as lovely as is was in the photos. We felt very insulated from the world, yet close to all of the beautiful sights and beaches that make Martha's Vineyard so sought after. The home and guest house have been lovingly restored and there is plenty of room to spread out. We enjoyed cooking in the updated kitchen that has a view of the pond on the property. We also enjoyed close proximity to Lucy Vincent Beach, Great Rock Bight Beach and Menemsha Sound. There are also several excellent hiking trails that are within walking distance of this home. The property is very close to Menemsha, a picturesque fishing village. Also nearby are the Chilmark General Store and the Chilmark Community Center, which hosts concerts, cookouts, movie festivals for families, and much more. There are several excellent restaurants nearby. A favorite upscale spot for dinner is State Road Restaurant. We also enjoyed the delicious pizzas they are turning out at the Chilmark General store. Not to be missed is a stop at Chilmark Chocolates just down the road from the general store. When visiting Menemsha be sure to sample fabulous seafood and delicious soft serve at The Galley, a much loved walk-up eatery. The sunsets as seen from the beach in Menemsha are legendary. Be sure to head to Larson's Fish Market where they will steam fresh lobster for you to savor on the beach while you watch your children play in the surf as the sun sets. If you like to ride bikes, this is a great area for that. You can bike to Menemsha for coffee and breakfast at Beetlebung Coffeehouse in Menemsha or take the quaint bike ferry in Menemsha and ride your bike all the way to Gay Head Light in the town of Aquinnah where there are more great beaches to explore. If you are in MV in August don't miss Illuminations in Oak Bluffs; and, if you are looking for a place to enjoy an intimate dinner after taking in the gorgeous cottages lit with thousands of paper lanterns, head to The Sweet Life Cafe for one of the best meals you will have on the island.
