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.pl
