Property description

Our home is a well loved Vineyard family home. Located just .2 mile from Main Street down town Edgartown on a quiet, private road. Our cape/post & beam has a very unique cottage feel with exposed brick wall/hearth and open beams all around. Lots of Vineyard charm and character. Very large yard with lush gardens and a nice hidden patio with lighting and sound system. Very Island-y neighborhood with a nice mix of families and year round neighbors as well as vacationers. We rent very little so our home is most comfortable with lots of amenities not found in your typical rental. Beautiful large manicures lawn with many outdoor spaces. So close to town but private. You will hear the church bells from the whaling church and the feel the fog from Edgartown Harbor!
Walk to town and never have to park or sit in summer traffic! Bike to beaches and/or other towns! So many restaurants and activities within .5 mile from our home!
Off Season is the best kept secret and our favorite time here. Access to the whole Island becomes much more available and the beaches are still warm with beautiful blue skies. Nights are filled with starry skies and cool breezes.
Perfect for one family with In laws- great first floor guest room.
Sonos, sound system in patio and Apple tv. lots of amenities not found in your typical rental!
Keywords: Cape with post and beam detail - 2016 calendar to be determined- inquiries please email!

Car: Not Necessary

so close to downtown Edgartown and the main bus terminal with connections to the whole Island. We are 1 street away from the historical district but on a very quiet private road. Beaches all around for your choices- walking calm beaches, 4 wheel drive access, harbor beaches and a 3 mile long barrier beach. Clamming, windsurfing, kite surfing, jet skis, paddle boards, you name it you can do it! Edgartown has a very lively tourist area for dining, shopping , walking tours and much history for just observing.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2004

About the owner: We spend a lot of time at our Vineyard home all year round it is a very special place to us and we hope to spend more and more time here in the near future! We are on the Vineyard most of the summer. It is a very inviting and special place. We live just south of Boston when off Island and definately consider our home here our true home! We spend at least 6 + months a year here and enjoy all 4 seasons on Island! The Island is constantly changing and new and old experiences are always presenting themselves. We love our home here and hope that our guests will have the same positive experiences!

Why the Owner Chose Edgartown, MA, USA:
We have always loved the Vineyard and especially Edgartown. Being city people we like the closeness to town but love to enjoy a lot of quiet quality time in our patio and home feeling secluded as our road is private and very quiet! If you want to be close to town but enjoy having green space and privacy than you will love our house! Your guests can all do different things without having to drive or involve others. Much to do so close to our house for everyone!

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Our home is so close to town and centrally located that your options are unlimited. So many things to do that in all our years here we are still finding new things on the Island to do and visit. We love to hike all parts of the Island that are not accessible during peak season. We also love to run/walk all around and Edgartown. The beach options are awesome and so close to home. 4 wheel- bike, walk, there are beaches for all within very close proximity from our house! Great dining options, shopping, lots of great trails for walking. Many art galleries and unique sights all around! Town to town the Island changes and keeps it interesting!
