Vineyard Haven house description

Equally perfect for a romantic rendezvous, or family adventure this stunning home is nestled on the tranquil cove where Lake Tashmoo meets the sea. Deeded Ocean Beach, Bicycles, Canoes & Memories included! No wonder this cove is on the 'Kayak Tour'.

Surrounded by the estate homes of Tashmoo West (an area of celebrities and multi-million dollar homes which rent bi-weekly for $30,000 and up), this listing is an exceptional value! -- it enjoys all amenities and a spectacular, one-of-a-kind setting with gorgeous water views from every room. Walk to PRIVATE, SANDY, OCEAN BEACH. Beyond historic field-stone walls lies a 70-acre wildlife preserve to explore -- hike or bike the trails, swim in the lake or ocean at 'Chappaquonsett' (deeded private beach). Paddle the boats, peddle the trails, enjoy the variety of fishing holes, relax on the decks, rejuvenate. . . . . Feel yourself completely at peace . . . . Yet drive only 5 minutes to town for exciting shopping, restaurants, entertainment and nightlife! (For example, a house rented 'up-island' on M.V. can take up to an hour to drive to town or the grocery store.) Here -- town is only 5 minutes away.

Walk the woodland path or paddle across the inlet to the ocean (2 canoes and small dock included). Take a dip in the cove directly in front of the house, then enjoy the outdoor shower. The children (or you) will have fun exploring for clams, quahogs, and mussels. Create your own Vineyard Clam Chowder or fresh steamers as you take in the amazing view from the kitchen. (See photo sent by guests, Steve & Fumi) Dine by the cozy fire, or 'al fresco' on the deck. At days end relax by candlelight on the screened porch with a drink and your loved ones while you watch the sun set gently over the water.

. . . . . . .Next day set off on an island adventure and paddle your canoes to the village for lunch at the 'Black Dog' Cafe. Or discover the lovely network of bicycle paths to explore around the island (2 bicycles provided).

This home includes two master suites each with queen-sized beds, wall-mounted, flat-screen TVs, and private balconies that overlook breathtaking views. Each master suite comes complete with cathedral ceiling and private bath with heated towel warmers. One master suite boasts a private sun roof. There is another double bedroom and 3rd full bathroom on the main floor. Across the screened porch is a 'Children's House' with bunk beds, TV and a loft double bedroom (for your nanny/mother's helper) -- Children's Wing open for children in summertime only.

The large, bright kitchen has skylights, water views out to the sea and overlooks the dining room with cozy fireplace. See the ships sail by while you relax in the living room with new flat-screen T.V., DVD, digital cable and wireless internet. Enjoy the Steinway Grand Piano. French doors open from the living room onto a spacious screened porch with comfortable wicker seating along with a broad outside deck. Hear the call of the osprey by day, bask in magnificent magenta sunsets at dusk, snuggle up by the fireside in the evening, and delight to the twinkling lights of Cape Cod and ocean sounds by night.

A truly wonderful spot!

                      70-acre wildlife preserve adjoins property beyond quaint, field-stone walls. Hike or bike these nature trails. Also explore the lovely network of bicycle paths through the State Forest. Fish the lake or ocean. Witness a broad spectrum of wildlife, from sea hawks and diving cormorants to native deer, otter, swans and wild turkeys. Along the private drive down to Kuffie's Point enjoy several working farms with goats, chicks, cattle, and horses. Paddle the canoes around the bend to see the ships moored in Lake Tashmoo. Spy the steamships as they cross every hour from Wood's Hole. Dig for clams and quahogs at low tide. Swim in the lake or ocean. Enjoy great shell-seeking on the beautiful PRIVATE BEACH. Visit an evening performance (seasonal) at the Outdoor Shakespeare Theater (a 5-minute drive or paddle away). Adventure around the bend at the beach to discover the colorful cliffs of Makonikey or paddle the canoes a gentle distance into town for lunch at the 'Black Dog' Cafe.

                       

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 1993

                      About the owner: Owners chose this property for its Sunsets, Tranquility, Nature, Beauty, Setting... and Adventures, and have over 30 years experience in vacation summer home rentals on Martha's Vineyard.

                      Why the Owner Chose Vineyard Haven:
                      Tashmoo West has serene views with rich history -- Private road residents include ABC's Diane Sawyer, famed Hollywood Director, Mike Nichols, President Roosevelt's Family and award-winning author, Judy Blume. Estate owners and frequent visitors to this area included actors James Cagney, Katherine Cornell, Vivian Leigh (Scarlet O'Hara), Rex Harrison, Noel Coward, Sir Laurence Olivier, famous authors Pearl Buck, Somerset Maugham, James Thurber, Helen Keller, and American Musical composer, Cole Porter.

                      The Unique Benefits at this House:
                      1) A 'Great Get-a-Way' yet so close to the villages for shopping, restaurants and night-life. (For instance, a house rented 'up-island' can take up to an hour to drive to town or grocery store.) 2) The Private Beach Uniqueness -- The sparkling, sandy beach speaks for itself (locate Herring Creek Road on a map to see the private beach 'Chappaqonsett'...which borders famous celebrities' private beaches) 3) Spectacular, vivid sunsets (blazing red, pink and magenta hues) that continue well into the late evening skies. Thrilling sunrises too! 4) The gorgeous natural beauty of the private cove....A symphony of gentle wildlife every day -- astride the water, beneath the sea, soaring aloft, searching the seashore, within the wooded glen, among the treetop branches. . . . 5) No wonder this cove is on the 'kayak tour'.
