Property description

This centrally located glassed-in house in the woods is a 15 minute drive or less to nearly anywhere on Martha's Vineyard. It is located in the middle of our 2 acres of woods on a paved road. Permits to two beautiful beaches are available: Lambert's Cove Beach on the north side of the island and Long Beach on the south side. There are many public beaches all within 15 minutes drive as well, including Owen Park, Eastville Beach, and State Beach, which is a popular 'wave' beach. Or drive up-island to the beautiful clay cliff beach of Aquinnah or the fishing village of Menemsha.

The house is designed so that the summer sun is kept out despite having a two story wall of glass in the main sitting area of the house. The effect is that your eyes naturally drift off into the woods, where you come to recognize various birds and squirrels and where they live. It is very peaceful. The screened-in porch is a favorite for reading and bird watching. Two patios, a table on the porch, a breakfast bar, and a regular sit-down table in the house provide many dining options. There is a fully equipped, full-sized kitchen, 1.5 bathrooms, and an additional private semi-outdoor shower.

The house is less than five minute's walk to the 3000 acre State Forest with bike paths connecting to all other bike paths on the island. Nearby places to bike (mostly on paths) include the State Forest, Tiah's Cove, the YMCA, Vineyard Youth Tennis, West Tisbury school playground and town tennis courts, Alley's and the Field Gallery, and just a bit further along are Long Beach, Lambert's Cove Beach and the town of Vineyard Haven. A 2 minute walk takes the kids to a terrific neighborhood baseball diamond, and a 10 minute bike ride gets you to a frisbie golf course in the State Forest. Various kids' games and some outdoor toys.

The owner has chickens and a rooster at the far edge of the property and you will hear, among the various neighborhood animal noises, the distant crowing of a rooster starting good and early. The pay off: fresh eggs that you yourself collect direct from the nest, so long as you promise to close the chicken coop door!

We may allow a dog. The area is perfect for it, with the State Forest next door. Please inquire.

We provide 100% cotton linens.

We will be living aboard our sailboat 'Aurora' in Vineyard Haven Harbor during the summer and will be usually available by cell phone should the renter require anything. Or, what might be more fun, come find us by water taxi and say hello!

Keywords: Centrally located home in woods along bike path, with passes for purchase (from the town of West Tisbury) to Lambert's Cove beach and Long Beach. Ball diamond & State Forest bike paths just yards away.
