Overview

About the property

With 2 houses and pool on 3+ acres: relax, lose the stress and decompress!

Located on a quiet, seaside country lane and situated on 3+ private wooded acres, this renovated Cape Cod Main House and Guest Cottage offer wonderful opportunities for relaxation and an ideal base for a relaxed, multi-generational family vacation in three seasons (spring, summer, fall). All living rooms and bedrooms in both houses have air-conditioning to beat the heat and heat to beat the occasional shoulder season chill.

At the top of the driveway circle, a large, Cedar shingled shed shelters bikes and gear from the elements. A stone path leads to the Main House kitchen door, providing easy access for carrying groceries and the like. The generous, well-shaded side lawn provides ample space for badminton or croquet or a game of ball with your favorite canine friend.

The Main House has three bedrooms and offers comfortable gathering spaces in its fireplaced combined living & dining room and the adjoining den. The long pine dining table seats ten in comfort. The country kitchen is well equipped with updated stainless steel appliances, and a high-efficiency washer and dryer. A full bath off the den completes the first floor. Upstairs, a full hall bathroom serves the twin and triple bedrooms; the grand master bedroom with cathedral ceiling has its own en suite full bath and spa tub. Every bedroom has cross-ventilation, a ceiling fan and louvered blinds.

Summertime offers numerous outdoor sitting and relaxation areas. The Main House stone terrace with its shady pergola overlooks a side yard and a fully fenced, in-ground pool. The pool area is otherwise secluded from outside view by mature Rhododendron, and chaise lounges and grassy areas provide comfort for sunbathers. A low deck at the rear of the Main House faces a tranquil Japanese garden with waterfall bounded by a stand of tall, leafy bamboo - a perfect place for a leisurely breakfast or coffee. A sunny stone patio and another large deck with built-in seating serves the Guest House. All outdoor spaces are equipped with chairs and tables, and, in some instances, lounges. The green between the main house and guest house is shaded by three mature Kousa Dogwoods, which flower in June.

The single level Cape Cod style Guest Cottage is steps away - light and airy with cathedral ceilings, yet a private little world of its own shielded from the Main House by Bamboo and other plantings. This cottage includes a newly renovated living room area with stylish, custom kitchenette, a large master bedroom and en suite, renovated full bathroom with high efficiency, stacked full-sized washer and dryer.

Adjacent to the Guest Cottage is the spacious, enclosed outdoor shower with hot and cold water, where you can fully shower or just rinse off from the pool, a run or the beach. Guests tend to linger here, so If a member of your party goes missing, look for him here first! The hammock on the generous shaded side lawn provides another quiet place to enjoy a nap or read a good book.

For the golf enthusiast, Mink Meadows Golf Club is 4 minutes by car or a ten minute walk and offers a friendly atmosphere and a challenging but playable nine hole course - always in great playing condition. Vineyard Haven is about a 7 minute drive and offers shops, restaurants, and ferry. Local West Chop beaches and piers are privately owned and accessible only to West Chop Club members and their accompanied guests. The Tisbury Town Beach on Vineyard Sound (Tashmoo) is about 7 minutes away; the Atlantic beaches, such as Katama, are on the south side of the Island about 30 minutes drive. There is a VTA bus stop on the West Chop Loop just before Franklin St., and the VTA system provides transport around the entire island.
