Jamaica house description

This home is very unique and special to me. I am a builder from Martha's Vineyard and put my heart, soul and experience into this one of a kind post and beam house. It sits on a private island on the West River that you access by going over a covered bridge. There are only two other homes on the island (island is over 100 acres). The house is 2800 square feet and the bedrooms range from 200 to 250 square feet. Each room has special touches down to the hand made tiles in the kitchen and bathrooms and branches in the railing systems. The kids bunk bed system is hand crafted with logs and branches and sports an elevated walkway, trap door and rope ladder. The massive 30 foot high interior fireplace is fashioned after a Lew French design and the spiral staircase to the loft has to be seen to be appreciated. I sit for hours listening to the river outside as it is only 30 feet from the house. Some days we put on our snow shoes and explore the island. We have just completed an around the island trail system that shows off its beauty. My girls love looking for animal tracks. We have deer and beaver on the island. I have seen lynx tracks but have never seen one.

This is not really a rental property - this is my dream house. It is 10 miles from Stratton Mountain (about a 15-20 minute ride to the mountain) which is a great ski and snowboard area in the winter and golfing community in the summer. Stratton Mountain is one of the best run mountains I have ever been to. Their customer service is unmatched in Vermont - They give out tissues at the chair lifts on really cold days. The people that work at the mountain truly want you to have a good skiing experience. They are not just punching a clock. The ski school is first rate and my 6 year old daughter can already ski from the top of the mountain and guides me through some of the easier forest trails. Manchester is about 30 miles away and is home to every outlet store you would want to shop in.......... I could go on forever. Take a look at the pictures and contact me if you want to see more.
