About the Property

House, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths (Sleeps 6)

This 3 bedroom 2 bath Cape style house has an open living-kitchen-dining area, one bedroom and bath on first floor, and 2 bedrooms with skylights separated by a landing and a shared bath with tub on second floor. The amazing part of this adorable house is the light! Light pours in from every angle/every window and the newly constructed entrance with cathedral ceiling even has three windows in it to maximize light.

The living room has new chairs and couch, a flat screen TV and DVD and CD player, and WIFI is available (other than on your phone) at a cost. Cell phones and smart phones work reliably in this home! Art galore. Never a mildew smell! Updated appliances within past few years. Includes d/w in kitchen and all appliances, as well as w/d in the full basement. All flooring is oak, and bedrooms are carpeted with additional Mexican throw rugs.

A long oyster/clam shell driveway (about 100 feet) between mature trees allows for privacy and peacefulness with the house not visible from the road. On the side of the house is a wood-burning, beautiful sauna - easy access. In summer and spring the property has flowered trees, bushes and flowers. The property is set on a 1/2 acre and is surrounded by mature trees, flowering bushes and backed by a forested area. A wood deck off the kitchen is accessed by sliding glass doors. Very private, peaceful, relaxing setting.

The house has always had one owner and a few renters in 2013 It was built in the mid-90's with some renovations in 2010 and more in 2012. This is a lovely, well kept, well-loved house that would be perfect for a couple or a small family or good friends. ...Well stocked, art filled, interesting throw rugs. Tidy and easy upkeep. A delightful place to hang out in or just use as a home base for island adventures.

On a peaceful street and an easy walk or bike to Eastville Beach on the Sound. Across the street from the Lagoon- warm, shallow,good for little kids.The bike path is right in front of the house! We are located mid way between Oak Bluffs Center and Vineyard Haven, a mile+ in either direction. Easy to walk, bike or bus to the towns and all the fabulous beaches and sites on the island. Great central location!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2011

About the owner: New Yorker fell in love with the vineyard years ago as a visitor and renter.

Why the Owner Chose Lagoon Heights, Oak Bluffs, MA, USA:
Having looked at many homes which had the 3BR, 2BA configuration I needed through a number of years, I fell in love with the long lovely oyster-shell driveway nestled between full trees, especially the gigantic holly tree at the end of the driveway. House was tidy and contained and as I walked through the light filled rooms to the deck and amazing vegetable garden in the large yard, I said 'this is MY house.' and so it was

The Unique Benefits at this House:
It was the light! the ease and dollhouse quality of what seemed like a perfect 'no project' house for me and for my grown kids. And the piece de resistance was the totally charming stand-alone sauna at a tiny distance from the house.
