About the property

5 Bedroom, 2 Bathroom house with water view

This light-filled deck house on Menemsha Hill is a great retreat for family and friends. Set on private, partially wooded 3.8 acre lot near the end of Menemsha Inn Road, you will be in a secluded setting where you can enjoy the views, wildlife, and the sounds of waves and the bell buoy. Comfortable furnishings and a spacious deck with views of Menemsha Bight make this the perfect place to enjoy peaceful country mornings and glorious sunsets. There's a large lawn where kids of all ages can play croquet, throw a frisbee or take a ride on the zip line.

You are one mile from Menemsha Hills Reservation and a 15-minute walk down the hill to the village of Menemsha, where you can grab a lobster dinner to go, dine in style, or stroll around the docks and the public beach. Passes to Lucy Vincent Beach and Squibnocket Beach are available to our tenants. Snuggle up by the wood-burning fireplace on cool spring or fall nights. The house is close to Chilmark's popular wedding venues.

An open floor plan and cathedral ceilings create a feeling of spaciousness. The kitchen, dining room and living room are upstairs, where there are also two bedrooms (one queen and one double bed) - one with its own private deck with water views - and a full bath. The downstairs has three bedrooms (two with queen beds and one with two single beds), a full bath, laundry, and a TV room. There is an outdoor shower for the ideal end to a day at the beach.

The house is nicely equipped, including all appliances, a flat screen TV (with satellite dish), Blu-ray disc player, compact stereo, gas grill and hi-speed wireless Internet.

Why Tom Kuh chose Menemsha

This is a family house that my siblings and I inherited. The property has been in our family for the more than 65 years and holds many cherished memories for us and our children.

What makes this house unique

This house is ideal for people seeking the relaxed pace of up-island life on Martha's Vineyard - a great place to slow down and unwind. There are three Chilmark town beaches nearby. You can walk down to Menemsha harbor and buy fresh fish, bring it home and grill it on the deck while you watch the sun set...

Great MV vacation location!

  • 5 of 5

We have been coming to this property for roughly 20 years, starting when our 3 children were quite young. It has been perfect for us year after year; we ALL still love it!

This house is not fancy, but perfect as a vacation property, especially for a family....private, spacious, open, with terrific views from inside the main living area to outside on the big deck. Lots of room to be together, but lots of rooms for solitude. All the modern conveniences and then some. After all these years, the "sky trolley" is still a big hit.

The property is in beautiful Chilmark, within walking distance of Menemsha, close to Lucy Vincent beach, the Chilmark store, library, community center, etc. Always nice to come back to after sightseeing or a day at the beach.

The house is not on a main thoroughfare, but not buried in the woods either. (It is however, rural, so there will be occasional bug sightings.)

We highly recommend this property, hope you enjoy it as much as we have.
