Chilmark house description

On Snapping Turtle Farm you will find a gorgeous mission style home, situated on 19 acres just above Squibnocket Pond with sweeping views of the ocean and Noman's Land Island beyond. The house was completed in 2002 with beautiful fir paneling and wainscoting throughout. The chef's kitchen is roomy to accommodate sous chefs and visitors alike. The beach is a 5 minute drive or a 15 minute walk away. Your kayaks and canoes can be stored on the shore of the pond which offers some of the best paddling on Martha's Vineyard. The owner maintains beautiful flower gardens around the house. Snapping Turtle Farm is a very private property. Come and relax and enjoy one of the best views on Martha's Vineyard Island.

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2000

              About the owner: My house is exquisitely handmade with fine woodworking throughout. My paintings and those of other artists are hung throughout the house. I helped design and build the house. My Inspiration for my paintings often comes from just looking out my windows at the breathtaking views. The peace and quiet is amazing, The natural beauty continues to put a smile on my face everyday that I am here.

              Why the Owner Chose Chilmark:
              All my renters so love the view and the privacy. It is the perfect spot for Martha's Vineyard visitors to enjoy and appreciate the natural surroundings of the island. One can watch the ducks and swans swimming in the pond or watch a pair of ospreys overhead fishing and an occasional marsh hawk swooping by, hunting for his supper.

              The Unique Benefits at this House:
              The kitchen is functional and spacious. Everyone likes gathering there to help prepare and enjoy snacks and meals. The views while doing dishes make this task desirable! The kitchen porch is ideal for morning coffee while taking in the early light on the ocean. The sunset porch with the old fashion wicker furniture will be a favorite destination; some may even have a cocktail in hand. The serenity and tranquility of this private setting is so healing and desirable. The beaches are minutes away. Picturesque Menemsha is a short ride from the house, with its fish markets and restaurants.
