Owner info

Year Purchased: 2000

About the owner: My house is exquisitely handmade with fine woodworking throughout. My paintings and those of other artists are hung throughout the house. I helped design and build the house. My Inspiration for my paintings often comes from just looking out my windows at the breathtaking views. The peace and quiet is amazing, The natural beauty continues to put a smile on my face everyday that I am here.

Why the Owner Chose Chilmark, MA, USA:
All my renters so love the view and the privacy. It is the perfect spot for Martha's Vineyard visitors to enjoy and appreciate the natural surroundings of the island. One can watch the ducks and swans swimming in the pond or watch a pair of ospreys overhead fishing and an occasional marsh hawk swooping by, hunting for his supper.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The kitchen is functional and spacious. Everyone likes gathering there to help prepare and enjoy snacks and meals. The views while doing dishes make this task desirable! The kitchen porch is ideal for morning coffee while taking in the early light on the ocean. The sunset porch with the old fashion wicker furniture will be a favorite destination; some may even have a cocktail in hand. The serenity and tranquility of this private setting is so healing and desirable. The beaches are minutes away. Picturesque Menemsha is a short ride from the house, with its fish markets and restaurants.
