Aquinnah house description

Happily isolated from the bustle of Oak Bluffs and Vineyard Haven, this tranquil residence a 15 minute walk from the cliffs of Aquinnah offers simple, unpretentious comforts of old Martha's Vineyard. The raised decks at the front of the house face westward onto fields, the sea and Aquinnah's shimmering sunsets. The grounds are flanked by old stone walls that bestow a seasonal bounty of blackberries, honeysuckle, salt spray roses and the occasional tiger lily. Nestled in the soft slope of a hill, the house combines shared social areas and private sleeping modules with baths and outside showers. Each of these areas connects to the others via a continuous wooden deck with steps down to the lawns. The roof of one unit doubles as a sturdy treetop porch, ideal for cocktails, star viewing, and yoga at dawn. The secluded pool is on the hill at the property's eastern edge; down across the front field, a rustic shack surrounded by scrub oaks provides a perfect retreat from activities in the main house. On sunny days, Aquinnah's public beaches beckon, a 7-minute drive from the house -- or you can drive in the opposite direction and sample the quiet, sheltered beaches of Lobsterville. Both towns preserve the relaxed sensibility and unhurried pace of Martha's Vineyard set apart and far back in time and space.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1965

About the owner: I live in Los Angeles with my wife and three children, and we are fortunate to spend part of every summer in Aquinnah. My parents bought the land and built the house in the late 1960s, and still visit when they can make the journey. The house is now the shared legacy of a large extended family: my sister and brother, their spouses and children, our cousins and closest friends. This home holds a centrifugal power over my family: hearth to shared meals, stage for music and rites of passage, setting for sunsets too many to recall, maker of memories too sweet to let go.

Why the Owner Chose Aquinnah:
In the 1950s, my father and mother rented summer houses in many towns of Martha's Vineyard. It was Aquinnah -- then called Gay Head -- that won their hearts. The land, which is home to the Vinyard's Wampanoag tribe, is less manicured than in some of the other towns. Maybe that's why you sometimes find families of deer or wild turkeys roaming the property at dusk or dawn. My parents treasured the untamed spirit of the place, benevolent and sometimes wild. Loving the land, my parents passed this esteem to their children, and we to ours -- and now to you.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Where to begin...mornings by the garden out back, with guitars and mandolins if they're handy. Porches and decks on all sides of the house, so you can always be in the sun or shade. Ivy climbs high on the fence around the pool, for privacy and occasional freedom from salt. Close enough to Aquinnah's beaches to hear the waves roar when the wind is high; far enough from State Road never to hear a passing car. No traffic or crowds on the roads of Aquinnah and Lobsterville, though the towns are second-to-none for swimming, sailing, fishing, catching clams, walking until you're weary, singing until you're sated.
