Property description

This airy, light-filled and very private deck house is a great retreat for family and friends. Comfortable, unfussy furnishings and a spacious mahogany deck make this the perfect place to enjoy peaceful country mornings and cool off after the beach while enjoying a gorgeous sunset view. Beautiful Waskosim's Rock Reservation is steps away, and passes to lovely Lucy Vincent Beach and Squibnocket Beaches are available to our tenants. Play tennis on private association courts, just a short walk away.

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 all-wood cathedral ceiling make being indoors almost like being outside. Snuggle up by the wood-burning fireplace on cool fall nights. A well-equipped kitchen opens to breakfast bar and dining area, with room at the table for 8.

The bedrooms are comfortable, uncluttered and fresh, with all-cotton sheets and down comforters. 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 are 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 detached outside shower is a delightful way to wash off after the beach.

Location

3.4 Miles
Nearest Beach
Lucy Vincent Beach

Car: Necessary

Our Chilmark location gives you access to some of the most beautiful private beaches on the Island, Lucy Vincent and Squibnocket. A lovely wildlife preserve, Waskosim's Rock Reservation, is a short walk from the property. We are conveniently located midway between the villages of Chilmark, where the General Store offers fantastic pizza, a porch with rockers, and world-class celebrity-spotting, West Tisbury, where Alley's General Store has everything you need and a great farm stand out back, as well as a great art museum, and the quaint fishing village of Menemsha, with fish markets right on the pier. Don't miss Chilmark Chocolates, fresh greens from North Tabor Farm, and a special night out at State Road, our favorite restaurant, or a family lobster night at the Home Port, with its sunset water views. Or get takeout at the HomePort's back door and take it down to Menemsha Beach, where happy picnickers toast and applaud the sunset on beautiful evenings. Take a drive out to Aquinnah to see the world-famous Gay Head cliffs and check out pizza night (Wednesdays) at the Orange Peel Bakery.

 

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. We live in Ohio but have family on the Island year-round. The house was built by my parents in the 1970s, and it is in part due to their efforts that the nearby Waskosim's Rock Reservation property was saved from becoming a subdivision. My recent novel for teens, WASHASHORE, is set on the Vineyard and was recently named the winner of the Green Earth Book Award for 2014.

Why the Owner Chose Chilmark:
I've been coming to the Vineyard since the 1970s, 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. Starry nights. Lots of comfy space for family to lounge, play games, and enjoy meals together. Walk to some of the most gorgeous hiking trails on the island. Wild blueberries in August. Key to private tennis courts, a short walk away.
