Chilmark house description

This open, light-filled and very private deck house is a great retreat for family and friends. Comfortable, contemporary furnishings and a spacious mahogany deck make this the perfect place to enjoy peaceful country mornings and cool off after the beach. Secluded setting, so you can enjoy the great outdoors. Beautiful Waskosim's Rock Reservation is a short walk away, and passes to lovely Lucy Vincent Beach and Squibnocket Beaches are available to our tenants.

Set high up on a private, partially wooded lot off rustic Tea Lane, there's plenty of room for kids to play inside and out. Enjoy beautiful summer evenings on the wrap-around deck. Floor-to-ceiling windows on the open-floor-plan main level with cathedral ceiling make being indoors almost like being outside. Snuggle up by the wood-burning fireplace on cool fall nights.

One bedroom on the main level has a king bed and private bath, 3 more bedrooms (one with a King bed and two with doubles) and another bath with washer and dryer on the lower level. Downstairs playroom with slider to the yard has two futon couches that open to full beds for extra guests.

New tiling and shower downstairs in 2012, new shower upstairs 2011. A private outside shower is a pleasant way to wash off after the beach.

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2007

                  About the owner: We love coming to the Vineyard to be near the wind and the waves, amenities that are sorely missing where we live! Time spent on the island is always restorative.

                  Why the Owner Chose Chilmark:
                  I've been coming to the Vineyard since the 1970s when my family built this house, and while this beautiful island has been discovered by many more people since then, it retains its rustic, charming character. My husband has fallen in love with the island as well, and our children look forward to spending time here each summer and winter, including long days playing in the waves on Lucy Vincent Beach, eating lobsters right on the pier in Menemsha, pizza on the famous porch of the Chilmark Store, and even mini-golf in Vineyard Haven. For my part, I'd be happy just to spend my days on our Chilmark deck, listening to the birds.

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  Coffee with the birds on the deck. Sunset drinks on the deck. Lots of comfy space for family to lounge, play games, and enjoy meals together.
