Property description

Bright and Sunny Oceanfront home. Steps from the beach. Amazing views. Our house is a 2 story home situated on a bluff overlooking the island of Marthas Vineyard. The Town of Falmouth celebrates July 4th with a huge fireworks display which takes place on a floating barge directly in front of our house. The famous' Falmouth Road Race' which attracts runners from around the world can be viewed right from our front yard.

The house has 6 bedrooms, 2 full kitchens, 2 bathrooms each with tub/shower, 2 living rooms, 2 dining areas, balcony, glassed-in sun porch, and patio. We purchased this house over 25 years ago precisely because it had been configured so that it could be used either as a normal 2 story house, albeit with 2 kitchens or as 2 separate fully equipped large apartments. This of course permitted our immediate family to reside in one apt. and our in-laws and/or family friends to use the other apt. simultaneously. The togetherness was and is great but so was and is the ability to retreat to your private space. There is a Washer/Dryer and included in each apartment is a dishwasher, high speed internet, microwave, and cable television. There is also a patio with BBQ and an outdoor hot water shower for removing all that sand and salt from the beach. The property has the most amazing direct ocean and beach views from almost every room in the house. Parking is available for 4 cars. Steps away from beach-side dining and pubs. 2 minute walk to beach, 3 minute walk from Falmouth Harbor, 3 minute walk from Falmouth Yacht Club. The Island Queen Ferry to Martha's Vineyard is just a short 5 minute walk. Bicycle rentals, several parks, baseball park, and basketball court are all located nearby. Short jaunt from Falmouth village center and all of the restaurants, shops and bars. This location is unsurpassed as far as views and proximity to everything needed for an outstanding and truly memorable summer vacation.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1987

About the owner: Our family has summered here for over 25 years. Our two children have grown up using the wonderful parks and beaches and learned to sail, fish and swim just in front of our house.

Why the Owner Chose Falmouth:
We purchased this property so that our family could have a relaxing and rejuvenating vacation spot by the sea. Our house is so conveniently situated with the harbor,yacht club,beaches,parks and village all located on our doorstep. Even the Falmouth town center which is so family friendly is very close which permits quick and easy access to the shops,,pubs restaurants and other services. Add the views and this is a truly breathtaking and unbeatable location.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The views of the Ocean and proximity to the beach are second to none. The world famous Woods Hole Oceanographic institute is located nearby. Falmouth also has an amazing bike path called the Shining Sea Bike Path which runs parallel to the sea for several miles.
