ARCHITECT'S OWN HOME, OCEAN VIEWS, SHORT WALK TO PRIVATE BEACH

Chilmark House Rental Photos and Description

House With 5 Bedrooms, 2-1/2 Baths, Outdoor Shower, A/C, WiFi, Sleeps 9-10

31 Stonewall is first and foremost a family home, built by its architect owner to be enjoyed by children and adults of all ages. The house is built into the side of a rise overlooking the Atlantic Ocean. The house is actually two structures; the main house with all the common living spaces and three bedrooms in an all year round building, and the “little house” with two summer bedrooms.

Downstairs in the main house are two bedrooms, each with queen beds, that share a full bath with a large shower. The bedrooms open to the lawn at the south of the house with a two person hammock nearby. The 1st floor above is the heart of the house both indoors and out. The whole 1st floor of the main house is a single space with a living area, a dining area, and a large chef’s kitchen. Across the deck at this level is the 'little house' with two bedrooms, each with a sink, and between them a shared toilet. The expansive deck opens off of the dining area and overlooks the lawn, meadow, and the ocean. It has a seating area and dining table with a large umbrella. The deck is elevated on one side and level with the ground on the other. Off the deck, there’s an outdoor shower. On the 2nd floor is the generous Master Suite with it’s own small balcony, a dressing area with sink, and a bathroom with a claw foot tub and a shower.

The house is designed and maintained for function and comfort without sacrificing aesthetics and simple pleasures. At its heart, it’s always about relaxing and reading and cooking and eating and entertaining and being a base for going to the beach, or to the store, or out to eat, or taking a walk, or going to a movie, or doing any of the wonderful things this extraordinary island has to offer.

We are an architect and a clinical psychotherapist. We live most of the year in New York City but have enjoyed spending time on Martha's Vineyard for many years, both winter and summer. In many ways, the Vineyard is our true home.

Hugh purchased this house in 1982

After renting for may years, we realized it was time to plant more permanent roots on the island we had come to love so much for it's serenity, it's beauty, it's bounty, and it's community. So we built this house to accommodate our family making sure to provide space for future generations, with separation as required, and community space for all to come together. The architectural idea was a modern country house, simple but not sparse, with varied spaces, views, and eclectic furnishings.

31 Stonewall is located in the Stonewall Beach Association area about 1 mile towards Aquinnah (Gay Head) from Chilmark Town Center. As a member of the association, 31 Stonewall enjoys Stonewall Beach on the south shore. Renters can either take a short walk to the beach down Stonewall Road or drive. The beach itself is one of the more beautiful island beaches, and usually has good waves for body surfing. And if one gets tired of sitting and bathing, it's a nice two-mile walk down to Squibnocket Beach and back, beach-combing all the way.

The Chilmark Community Center at 1.3 miles distance has a morning play-school for 4-5 year olds and a camp-like program for kids 6-14. They also offer tennis, yoga, and dance for adults, and an evening program of films, chamber music, authors' lectures, and the like. The Chilmark flea market occurs every Wednesday and Saturday mornings, the same days as the Farmer’s Market in nearby West Tisbury. There are numerous conservation areas throughout town and island with walking trails for nature hikes.

Close by the Community Center is The Chilmark Store and the Chilmark Library. The store is a hub of activity all day long for people coming down for a newspaper and a coffee in the morning and enjoying a sandwich or a slice of pizza on the porch for lunch. The kid-friendly library is a great place to spend a few hours of a rainy day book-browsing or borrowing a DVD.

Menemsha, at three miles, is the quintessential fishing village with commercial fishing boats, yachts, fish markets, some simple shops, and a gentle beach great for very young kids.

In addition to Stonewall and Menemsha Beach, Chilmark summer renters can obtain permits at the Town Hall for Lucy Vincent and Squibnocket Beaches. Lucy Vincent is known for it's beautiful sand and great waves for body surfing.

Chilmark is “up-island” and out of the summer congestion and busyness of the three “down-island” towns; Vineyard Haven, Oak Bluffs, and Edgartown. But they all are only 20-25 minutes away and offer a variety of shops, sightseeing, restaurants, etc. whether for a rainy day, or an evening out. Each town is unique; with Vineyard Haven a relaxed typical New England town; Oak Bluffs with its Victorian gingerbread houses and lots of restaurants and shops; and Edgartown with stately whaling captain's homes, gorgeous small streets and gardens, and interesting shops and restaurants.
