Splendid isolation. This landmark 5.2 acre property on the tip of John Oliver Point is akin to living on your own private island with a long stretch of white-sand beach. The stunning architect-designed post & beam house enjoys 360-degree water views so you can enjoy sunrise and sunset from the same seat. These are among the biggest and best water views from any home on Martha’s Vineyard. You can see the twinkling lights of the mainland and ships far out at sea, lighthouses from Cape Cod, Nantucket, Oak Bluffs, Cape Poge, and Edgartown. Watch sailboats racing off Edgartown and yachts making their way from the Cape to Nantucket. Light and space are the defining characteristics, with soaring ceilings and large custom windows that take full advantage of the massive water views. A dramatic freestanding stone fireplace is the centerpiece of the great room, running upward through the exposed ceiling. The large master bedroom and bath enjoys a commanding setting, and each of the guest bedrooms has its own ensuite bathroom as well as its own sweeping waterviews. This house is also built for year-round living, and some say the setting here is even more dramatic in the off-season. The pristine 2-bedroom guest house cottage - romantic and quaint - lets you step back in time, and it also has huge waterviews from the house and deck. Privacy is assured but it is a mere 5 minute drive to the Chappy ferry - or you can take your Whaler over to Edgartown for dinner. The mooring has a 7-ft draft at low tide and the outhaul just off the sandy beach provides quick and convenient access. The fishing and clamming on this site are among the best on the Eastern seaboard. There are several watercraft that come included with the purchase price and the house is available fully furnished with oriental rugs and beautiful Swedish antiques. This is the setting for families to enjoy unforgettable vacations or year-round living in their own piece of paradise.
Some second-home communities mirror real life. They serve up a familiar lifestyle. The only difference is the surroundings. But off the Massachusetts coast, Martha’s Vineyard and Nantucket are second-home luxury real estate communities transplanted in time. Martha’s Vineyard is New England’s largest resort island, located seven miles off the mainland or about a 45-minute ferry ride away. Read more about luxury homes in Martha's Vineyard
