About the Property
House, 4 Bedrooms, 2.5 Baths (Sleeps 8)
Charming, nestled away, this must see post and beam home is situated on the edge of Keith Farm, which provides sweeping pastoral views and occasional visits by the beautiful horses who neighbor the property. Enjoy both the isolated beauty of this secluded one acre property and the convenience of this amazing central location.
This Post and Beam home is beautiful yet not fussy, furnished with both elegance and comfort in mind, with well thought out amenities, including but not limited to: fully equipped kitchen with a large rustic farm table that seats eight; Deck appointed with teak furnishings and a large gas grill provides wonderful views of the beautiful Vineyard sunsets; large outdoor shower; Open concept living room with cathedral ceiling, equipped with an easy to use sound system; Loft area has a new flat screen T. V., great for hanging out and can also be used as an extra space to house guests; 4 Bedrooms furnished with plush mattresses and bedding (3 bedrooms are in the main house, the 4th is in the detached cottage); Detached cottage provides an additional bedroom and 300 sq ft of guest space.
Thanks to a great recommendation from one of our thoughtful guests who stayed with us in July 2016, the cottage will soon have a screen door on the front of the building as well as a small AC for those few and far between very hot days.
AND THERE'S MORE..........
2 minute drive or 10 minute walk to the famed Lucy Vincent Beach; 2 minute drive or 10 minute walk to the Center of Chilmark, the library and the Chilmark Community Center, where you can access a bus during the summer season multiple times a day, to any town on the island; Chilmark is the home to the picturesque working village of Menemsha, which is famous for fresh catch seafood and spectacular sunsets; If you enjoy walking trails, Chilmark has the most of any town on the island; A 10 minute drive out of town will bring you to the famed red clay cliffs with beach below to the town of Aquinnah, formerly known as Gayhead.

Year Purchased: 2014
About the owner: We live year round in New Hampshire and have been vacationing on the island for many years with our family and friends. We made a decision to buy our own home in 2011 and began looking in earnest at that time. We saw a number of possibilities but never one that we both fell in love with right away. In the spring of 2014 our realtor contacted us and said, "how many times have I said that you must come and check out this property RIGHT AWAY?" I paused and thought about his question briefly , and then responded- "Never". Being a Friday afternoon, we packed a bag and headed to the vineyard . We got to the property a little before our appointment on Saturday and sat on deck enjoying the view and both knew that this is what we had been waiting to see! By the time of our scheduled meeting, we realized we had found our new home.
Why the Owner Chose Chilmark, MA, USA:
Location is amazing. Chilmark is rural, and our home clearly feels that way. But to be within a ten minute walk to a fabulous beach, and the community center, which has awesome entertainment, films, speakers, tennis, yoga classes etc...... Additionally if we don't feel like getting in a car-we don't because we live right on a bus route which circles the entire island.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
The views looking over pastureland of the farm abutting our land are protected in conservation easement, which assured us that it will always retain that look. The occasional visits to the split rail fence from the horses who board there, is just another charming bonus. We look forward to hearing how you enjoy our special location!
