Property description

This 3 bedroom 2 bath Cape style house has an open living-kitchen-dining area, one bedroom and bath on first floor, and 2 bedrooms with skylights separated by a landing and a shared bath with tub on second floor. The amazing part of this adorable house is the light! Light pours in from every angle/every window and the newly constructed entrance with cathedral ceiling even has three windows in it to maximize light.

The living room has new chairs and couch, a flat screen TV and DVD and CD player, and WIFI is available (other than on your phone) at a cost. Cell phones and smart phones work reliably in this home! Art galore. Never a mildew smell! Updated appliances within past few years. Includes d/w in kitchen and all appliances, as well as w/d in the full basement. All flooring is oak, and bedrooms are carpeted with additional Mexican throw rugs.

A long oyster/clam shell driveway (about 100 feet) between mature trees allows for privacy and peacefulness with the house not visible from the road. On the side of the house is a wood-burning, beautiful sauna - easy access. In summer and spring the property has flowered trees, bushes and flowers. The property is set on a 1/2 acre and is surrounded by mature trees, flowering bushes and backed by a forested area. A wood deck off the kitchen is accessed by sliding glass doors. Very private, peaceful, relaxing setting.

The house has always had one owner and a few renters in 2013 It was built in the mid-90's with some renovations in 2010 and more in 2012. This is a lovely, well kept, well-loved house that would be perfect for a couple or a small family or good friends. ...Well stocked, art filled, interesting throw rugs. Tidy and easy upkeep. A delightful place to hang out in or just use as a home base for island adventures.

On a peaceful street and an easy walk or bike to Eastville Beach on the Sound. The bike path is right in front of the house! We are located mid way between Oak Bluffs Center and Vineyard Haven, a mile+ in either direction. Easy to walk, bike or bus to the towns and all the fabulous beaches and sites on the island. Great central location!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2011

About the owner: New Yorker fell in love with the vineyard years ago as a visitor and renter.

Why the Owner Chose Oak Bluffs:
Having looked at many homes which had the 3BR, 2BA configuration I needed through a number of years, I fell in love with the long lovely oyster-shell driveway nestled between full trees, especially the gigantic holly tree at the end of the driveway. House was tidy and contained and as I walked through the light filled rooms to the deck and amazing vegetable garden in the large yard, I said 'this is MY house.' and so it was

The Unique Benefits at this House:
It was the light! the ease and dollhouse quality of what seemed like a perfect 'no project' house for me and for my grown kids. And the piece de resistance was the totally charming stand-alone sauna at a tiny distance from the house.
