Explore your private boardwalk and island on a beautiful saltwater pond of 745 acres (2 1/2 miles in length) with connections to Nantucket Sound. From a large patio (great for entertaining) you look down over an expansive lawn to the boardwalk and lawn chairs. You can eat outside on the open deck or in a large screened-in porch overlooking the water. Also, there is a picnic table on your own island where you can enjoy a picnic and water activities. An expansive outside shower is off the porch.
The house is newly renovated by one of the Island's top architects. The interior is bright and beautifully furnished with a tasteful, beachy feel. Design of this fully air conditioned 3,500sq ft home takes full advantage of sparkling water views from almost every window.
A great room overlooks the patio with a wall of windows and a gas fireplace for chilly nights. An entertainment area provides a large screen, high definition TV and wireless Internet, which can be reached throughout the house. The modern gourmet eat-in kitchen has granite counters, brand-new top of the line dishwasher and refrigerator, double ovens, 5 burner cook top and is fully equipped for the discerning chef. Williams Sonoma dishes and glassware, and All-Clad pots and pans are at your fingertips in this well-laid-out kitchen.
On the deck, a new Weber stainless steel Genesis gas grill makes barbequeing a snap. A lovely bar area, located in the center of the open first floor, has a side-by-side red / white wine refrigerator, drink glassware and lovely dishes for serving hors d'oeuvres. In addition, the first floor has a formal dining room for 10, and separate den with a double sofa bed, flat screen TV and games. A full bath with a large shower and a large airy entryway completes the first floor.
Three en suite bedrooms (one king and two queens) provide great privacy for three couples, one of which is a large master bedroom with a seating area, flat screen hi-def TV and a large private balcony. An additional bedroom (entered from either the king or a queen bedroom) has twin beds and is decorated for the little pirates in your family. All bedrooms are located on the 2nd floor.
The property is adjacent to the Martha's Vineyard Rod and Gun Club, and within an easy walk to the Felix Neck Audubon Wildlife Sanctuary and hiking trails. We are also within walking distance of miles of walking trails in the MV Land Bank Conservation Land. It is also near bike paths connecting Edgartown, Oak Bluffs, and Vineyard Haven town centers. Bikes can be rented from the Edgartown Bike shop by the day or week, making it easy to enjoy the miles of safe bike trails on the island.

You can kayak (rental kayaks can be delivered and picked up from the house) from your own beach - this allows you to be at bend-in-the-road beach and big bridge in less than 10 minutes. You can also kayak around Flex Neck Preserve and enjoy the wide variety of water fowl that live on the almost 900 acre salt water pond. You can also rent small motor boats that can be delivered to the pond - this is fun for a quick run to Edgartown harbor.
Fishing on the pond is great fun. Striped bass are present from early May to November. Bonito are present in peak numbers in July and August. Albacore show up in mid August and stay into October. You can fish from our dock or in a kayak or motor boat.
