About the Property

Incredible views, privacy and a natural pond- 4 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

Magnificent ocean views from every room. Short walk to spectacular, sandy Philbin Beach on the Gay Head Beach. This beach is not at all crowded, open only to people staying in our town. You can freely take long strolls in both directions including under the Gay Head Cliffs.
Renovated, two-story home. Privacy! Three acres with sweeping lawn to large natural pond: frogs, ducks, deer, natural water lilies, turtles, and an occasional otter.

Upstairs and downstairs decks. Separate dining room seats eight and fully a equipped kitchen. On the first floor there is a bedroom with King bed and one bedroom with two Twins. Upstairs there is one bedroom with a Queen bed and one with two double futons, that room can double as a family room. The house is post and beam construction with plaster walls. Three tiled full baths. One with a two person whirlpool tub, one with a tub/shower and one with a stand alone shower for easy access. Large walk-in outdoor shower. High-speed Comcast cable Wi-Fi, Air-conditioners.

Beaches: Short walk (eight minutes) to Gay Head Beach. Philbin Beach is the entrance, a long stretch of sandy beautiful ocean beach - just for the town residents of this tiny town. Gay Head one of the beautiful beaches of the world. You can walk for miles. Menemsha pond beach, at Lobsterville, is a five minute drive - a wonderful all natural flat-water beach for children and swimmers. Also five minutes away is the West Basin Beach on the Vineyard Sound, miles of sand and dunes, all on the Vineyard Sound overlooking the Elizabeth Islands.

Our property has wonderful privacy, no house is visible from ours. We have three acres, a sweeping lawn that leads down to our natural pond.

Martha's Vineyard has an extraordinary number of long walking trails and nature preserves, golf courses, movie theaters, restaurants, book stores, beaches, and riding trails. There is every kind of swimming opportunity, kayaking, body surfing, surfing, biking, birding, fishing, and boating.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1998

About the owner: My husband and I both work on the island. I am the art teacher for The Chilmark School and my husband owns a window and door business in Chilmark. We raised our son and daughter on Martha's Vineyard. We live about 8 miles from the house.

Why the Owner Chose Aquinnah, MA, USA:
I inherited the land with a small summer cottage from my parents, who bought it in 1963. We knew that a location like that would be almost impossible to purchase today. We renovated and expanded it into a year round home because it was in such a magnificent location. My husband and I already owned a home on Martha's Vineyard so we decided to maintain this house as a vacation rental.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
While the house is a well heated year round house it always feels like a beach house - the bedrooms have painted wooden floors, perfect for bare feet. You can see the waves, hear the sea and feel the ocean breeze. The large windows were designed to take advantage of the view from every location. On the first floor and on the second floor our huge mahogany windows look out toward the ocean and across the expansive lawn toward our pond. The birding is amazing as the islands are on a migration path and our own pond attracts many species of birds. Aquinnah is so natural that birds have wild vineyard grapes and every kind of berry to feast upon. We try to keep binoculars and birding books and a feeder at the house. We are at the end of the little road on three acres, so there is a wonderful sense of privacy. Walking from our house to the ocean is just a wonderful experience.
