About Nancy Hume
My parents bought this property in the early 60s and built, in 1967, the big, un-winterized house I grew up enjoying. I have been coming to the Vineyard all my life and consider this a magical island. My mother built this cottage to live in year-round in 2005. My family (Gary, 12 year-old daughter, Cora, and, Daisy, our dog) and I love our time in this home, on Chilmark Pond and Hancock Beach, throughout the seasons. Currently, we live in the South Street Seaport neighborhood of New York City.
Why Nancy Hume chose Chilmark
This area of Chilmark is called the "gold coast" of the Island because it is on a high point that looks down and out across the spectacular Atlantic Ocean. It is within easy reach of Chilmark Pond and the Atlantic beyond. The property is Up-Island: close to Lucy Vincent Beach, a gorgeous town beach, West Tisbury and the wonderful Free Library there and Alley's General Store, Menemsha (the fishing village with fish markets), Squibnocket (another fabulous town beach), and Acquinnah with the Western look out and majestic clay cliffs.
What makes this Cottage unique
The house is easy and comfortable and has all that one needs for a happy vacation. There is an outdoor shower, and a shower/bath/sink and washer/dryer in one bathroom, with a toilet/sink in another. The kitchen is ready for the culinary enthusiast and the outdoor grill makes summer dining easy. There is a hammock and, if you are at the house in late July, you will be able to harvest the delectable huckleberries!
