Property description

Come share our vacation home, a classic New England shingled house on an acre-and-a-half of woodland within easy reach of Martha's Vineyard's beaches, towns, and varied countryside. The interior is airy, sunlit, comfortably furnished and fully equipped for entertaining or easy family living. Downstairs has an open floor-plan with dining room, kitchen, and living room: plenty of space for a family to gather or to spread out and relax. Upstairs are three bedrooms: two with queen beds and a third with a twin bed and its own deck.

One boundary of the property is an "Ancient Way" public path that connects to a network of hiking trails and bike paths that crisscross the island. Nearby are horse farms, freshwater ponds, and the 4,300-acre Manuel Correllus State Forest; stunning beaches are two miles away. (Passes to residents-only Lambert's Cove Beach and Long Point Beach are available for a fee at the nearby Rec Shed.)

The surrounding wood that you observe from the three decks and many windows of the house is predominantly moss-covered oak with berry underbrush--perfect for birds and small wildlife. The clean, salty Vineyard breezes are refreshing.

The access road to the house is a cul-de-sac. Even though the house feels deep in the woods, Vineyard attractions are easy to reach by car, bike, or the nearby bus route. The ferry at Vineyard Haven is three miles away, and there are shops and restaurants closer by. West Tisbury itself combines the quiet of "Up Island" countryside with amenities like the excellent State Road Restaurant, Alley's General Store, and the weekly flea market in the Grange Hall.
