Chilmark house description
Luxury compound in secluded, rural area on 7-plus peaceful acres, no neighbors in sight. The charming, 18th-century farmhouse has been restored to luxury standards with a professional kitchen, antiques-filled living and dining rooms, glassed-in conservatory and separate, contemporary master bedroom suite. The precise street address is 245 North Road, Chilmark.
The kitchen includes all professional appliances, complete batterie de cuisine, cook-in fireplace and sizable culinary library. B & O sound system on ground floor, flat-screen tvs downstairs and upstairs. The master bedroom suite includes a private deck with outdoor shower, ultra-modern stainless steel bathroom with Jacuzzi tub, enclosed shower and two sinks. Pierre Frey, Canovas and Charisma linens and upholstery. Two separate offices have broadband, WiFi, phones and fax. Heated towel racks in bathrooms and mudroom.
The pool is set in a landscaped rose garden, with a flower-covered pool house and surrounding wood deck. The hot tub has Jacuzzi jets and accommodates up to six adults. The adjacent barn has been renovated as an entertainment and recreation space, which can welcome up to 40 diners. Away from the barn is the tennis court, across a spacious field that overlooks the pond, which is home to ducks, otters, frogs and tadpoles. A hammock is sited between the house and the pond. Outside the kitchen door is a brick patio, perfect for entertaining and casual meals. Picnic tables are dotted throughout the orchard. Outside the kitchen and not visible from the brick patio is the grilling area, with a grand-piano-sized charcoal grill. Air conditioning in upstairs bedrooms, fans in living and sleeping areas downstairs. Three outdoor showers with private decks. French Provencal fabrics, Charisma towels, sizable attic for luggage.

Year Purchased: 1955
About the owner: This property was purchased by us from the actor James Cagney, whose own house was contiguous and is now owned by the heirs of Thomas Hart Benton, the legendary American painter whose work frequently featured scenes from the Vineyard. Cagney kept his herd of prized cattle on the property, which was occupied by the farmer he employed. The second storey, comprising three bedrooms, storage attic and a spacious bathroom, was then added. The bathrooms were renovated three years ago. Some 10 years ago we added the 600-square-foot kitchen/dining area and the 400-square-foot conservatory, plus surrounding outdoor decks, which serves as a 'summer' living room. The newest wing, completed two years ago, includes the master bedroom, ultra-modern bathroom and a mudroom leading outdoors which can be shut off from the main house for privacy.
Why the Owner Chose Chilmark:
My husband had a five-year plan for evaluating vacation homes, but when he discovered this gloriously unspoiled island, with its sweeping vistas, varied recreational opportunities and secluded atmosphere, he abandoned the five-year plan. For families the nearby Chilmark Community Center offers activities for all age groups. The island is conveniently served by air directly from Boston, New York and Washington, by fast-ferry from New Bedford and New Jersey and by car-passenger ferry from Woods Hole.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
You can enjoy solitude or activity in whatever proportions you want at our home, which is completely self-contained and protected from outside its boundaries. A hammock grove offers a pleasant spot for reading and contemplation, the barn is far enough from the house to be undisturbed, you can swim, sun, play tennis or bike whenever. A full vegetable garden is available for tenants to enjoy. Your wine can rest safely in a temperature-controlled cellar. Farmers' markets dot the island for those inclined to cook, or there is a professional chef living on the property who is available to cook upon request. Full service cleaning and laundry is available.
