Island living, island views, an island vacation to return to year after year.
Up to 10 of your family and friends will find private quarters blended with generous gathering places in this gorgeous and comfortable award-winning up-island home. Spend your days at Chilmark's beaches: Lucy Vincent, Menemsha or Squibnocket ; or explore the island in the afternoon, but save sunsets for the deck overlooking the Elizabeth Islands as boats return to Menemsha Harbor.
The master suite includes king-sized bedroom with fireplace and panoramic ocean views, office or study, stack washer/dryer, and loft with twin beds. A second master bedroom anchors the other side of the house with its king-sized bed, en suite bath, and more stunning views.
In between, the family style kitchen opens up to the eating area with an antique dining table transplanted from Canada that seats 12. The living room features an oversized fireplace, bar, and lots of comfortable sofas and chairs for afternoon naps, a great read, or a late-night game of charades.
On this level there are 3 outdoor seating areas: the water side has a private patio off of the master suite and a wrap around porch off of the kitchen and living room. On the woods side there is a patio off the kitchen with group seating and an outdoor propane grill.
Downstairs, you'll find a second galley kitchen, large living room with library and fireplace, one bedroom with twin beds, a second with a double bed, and pull-out sleepers in the den and fireplace living room. This lower level includes two baths, another laundry, and the sliding doors open to a patio and grassy yard with water views and an outdoor shower.
If you must leave the house every couple of days, take a walk to the private association beach, trails, or tennis courts. On Wednesdays and Saturdays, you can walk to the renowned Chilmark Flea Market. Fresh fish from Menemsha or fried clams in Aquinnah or a stop at Chilmark Chocolates are favored nearby trips to mark your days at this up-island home.
