Two brothers Christopher and Andrew and their wives Rachel and Gretchen recently purchased this lovely farmhouse on Seven Gates farm, where the boys spent their childhood summers. Christopher and Rachel live in Santa Fe and Gretchen and Andrew live in San Francisco.
Owner purchased this House in 2017
Why Owner chose West Tisbury
The Purvis family has been summering on Martha's Vineyard since the 1920's, but it was Christopher and Andrew's mother Peggy who found Seven Gates. She said it reminded her of Cornwall, with its woods, meadows and stone walls and miles of rocky coastline, sandy beaches and quiet water. It is our dream come true to own our own property on Seven Gates, which we think is the loveliest corner of Martha's Vineyard.
What makes this House unique
Quiet, green getaway, with private beach access but close to all the activities of Martha's Vineyard in summer such as markets, art shows, beaches and shops and the wonderful county fair.

Summer at Seven Gates
This property, Seven Gates, is quite charming with a large lawn that is ideal for a host of outdoor activities and safe for our grandchildren to romp and play freely. There is a tennis court directly across road from the house and beaches nearby. Our children and grandchildren enjoyed climbing down the pier and swimming out to the raft to sun and chat at Gray's Beach. The house and adjacent barn rooms were clean, comfortable and inviting with many amenities provided for our use.
Seven Gates had ample space both inside and out for relaxing, gathering and entertaining for our multiple family group of 11. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and hope to return in the future.
Lovely property, good location with ample room for large group
We were a group of 11 adults and the house and property, which was lovely, had both room for us to gather together and places where we could go off by ourselves. The house isn't fancy, nor is the barn, but they are both very comfortable. The location--a tree-shaded mile from a small beach with a pier in one direction and a mile to the road in the other direction--couldn't have been better since there were fishermen and bicyclists in our group. I should also mention that the house is across the road from the shared tennis court and it has a washer and dryer. We had two minor issues with the house that were addressed promptly.
We had a lovely time here--all eleven of us.
We are so glad you enjoyed yourselves!
Our 18th Century farmhouse is situated amidst the woods and fields of exclusive Seven Gates Farm. Broad lawns, old stone walls and our own pond in the woods create a magical setting. Seven Gates shady sand roads are perfect for walking and running and take you to beautiful private swimming beaches on Vineyard Sound where you can swim, sail, kayak or fish off the private piers. Perfect for families.
