Architect designed 4 Bd/4 Bth + detached studio, 360 degree wraparound veranda, tastefully furnished and appointed, exquisitely detailed. Stunning views across open expansive meadows. Separate guest house (2 Bed/1 Bath + Loft) available. See the series of photos capturing the compound. The first series of pictures are of the Main House (exterior, interior + detached studio). Together, the Main + Studio offers 4 bedrooms, 4 bathrooms. Each bathroom features decorator tile, Grohe fixtures and high-end finishes.
The second set of photos show the Guest House, which has a separate entrance as well as pea-gravel driveway with ample parking. It is very private, serene and set off a good distance from the Main House so that you would not feel the properties are connected.
The property can be rented either as a compound or as separate homes. As a compound, it would work great for family reunions, extended families or folks who simply like to entertain whilst on holiday.
Gray Oaks was built in 2004 by world-renowned architect Michael Ball. The homes now feature central air-conditioning and have been freshly painted inside and out. The three homes come complete with all new high-end appliances, professional landscaping, Arroyo craftsman lighting fixtures + Stickley furnishings. In addition, phantom screens have been added to all french doors (3 sets) as well as to the back entrance. I must say the property was well-sited by Michael Ball and is cool no matter what the temperature outside.
A great new feature added to the property are the cobblestone walkways built by local artisans from real river stones which lead from the roads to the entryways. They are spectacular, providing both charm and function. Additionally, the roads have all been properly constructed with the estate-worthy driveways being covered in highly-desirable pea gravel.
Gray Oaks is south of South Road. It is the first left off of Quansoo Road. It is terribly convenient (yet private) as you are centrally located to the beaches, shops and Alley's, yet will never be trapped in vacation traffic. Our family often bikes to private beaches (Quansoo, Black Point) in less than 15 minutes. The property is also surrounded by countless walking trails and ancient ways. Each house has LL Bean hammocks, fireplaces and the Main House offers a fantastic, competition ping-pong table!
The property is elegant and an architectural masterpiece of the Craftsman style. The Main (including the detached studio) offers 4 bedrooms and 4 bathrooms. There is a 360 degree wraparound veranda, gourmet kitchen, Weber grills and is tastefully furnished, exquisitely detailed with unequated sunset views across open, expansive meadows. Gray Oaks abuts Gray Barn, which is 69+ acres of conservation land, an organic gentleman's arm. Gray Oaks is quite a magical spot with what I believe to be the best lighting to be found on Martha's Vineyard.
