Edgartown house description

First floor has comfortable open floor plan with family room, kitchen, dining room, living room and full bedroom and bath. This house is loved by all who visit because it has the charm of the original farmhouse and the amenities of today. The second floor has 4 large bedrooms, all newly decorated with 3 baths, making shower time easy for all. Sunlight streams into the house througout the day and sea breezes waft through in the afternoon. A new outdoor shower is a wonderful end to any outdoor day. There is a screened front porch for morning coffee and a back deck for evening cocktails and BBQ, A newly planted garden adds to the character of this special place. So close to town that you hear the bells of the Old Whaling Church chime every hour.

                  Car: Recommended

                  Tucked away on top of a hill at the end of a private road. The high elevation creates a cool afternoon breeze that sweeps through the house. (Those farmers knew how to locate a house!) A short easy walk or bike ride to Edgartown center with all of the shops, sightseeing, harbor, restaurants, bars, and galleries available. Walking to town is convenient since parking in town is scarce and crowded. Without your car, you can also walk or ride to the supermarket, liquor store, pharmacy, etc. The bike ride to the ocean at South Beach is flat, offroad and beautiful, passing by interesting homes and gardens. A bike ride to State Beach takes less than 10 minutes and is a welcome respite for a quick swim or book read. One of the most spectacular bike rides is along Ocean Road to Oak Bluffs where you can ride the carousel, eat a meal, have an ice cream, attend a concert or just people watch. Afternoon trips to Aquinnah (Gay Head) and sunset dinners at Menemsha are easily accessible whether planned or impromptu. Upon returning, you have a quiet, peaceful retreat in a lovely garden setting.


                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2012

                  About the owner: I grew on Long Island Sound and spent summers on Fire Island and the Hamptons. To me, the Vineyard is even more special than those places. Development has been kept to a minimum and so there is not the sense of ostentatiousness that you might see elsewhere. While there are magnificent homes on the Vineyard, the objective is to be low key, rather than show off. Everywhere, you see people, young people, parents, seniors, all having a good time..walking, shopping, swimming, resting, biking. The place has a timeless quality of life one rarely sees in today's bustling resorts. Around each corner, there are meadows and fields, farms and forests, manicured and cottage gardens and beaches and vistas everywhere. As I say to all our visitors...'The Vineyard is not necessarily easy to get to, but once you are there, it's worth it.

                  Why the Owner Chose Edgartown:
                  Once I fell in love with the place, I searched for a long time for a house in Edgartown, the most desireable and prestigious location, that had a genuine character and was large enough to accommodate all of our different interests. Our house is very spacious and one can find privacy or companionship depending on your mood. The house has a fine sense about it and makes all who visit welcome, comfortable and happy to be there.

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  Being close to the main center of Edgartown is hugely beneficial. There are no parking or driving issues. The bike is the most preferred form of transportation. Everyone rides on the off road safe bikepaths. It's fun and makes everybody feel like a kid. Edgartown is also the most sophisticated of the three towns with fine dining, waterfront restaurants and marinas. Chappaquidick is a short barge ferry ride across the channel. Cappaquidick is a world unto itself. The Trustees beach is one of the most pristinely beautiful beaches you will see anywhere in the world. Looking left or right you will see not one man made structure. Oak Bluffs is close, funky and fun to visit. It offers nightlife and endless activities and concerts in the waterfront park or in the Victorian 'Campgrounds'. In the 'Tabernacle' thousands gather at Illumination Night to sing old fashioned American songs at tour the gingerbread houses lit up especially for that night.
