This bright, sunny, gambrel Cape Cod home is situated on a private acre on a quiet country lane. You are a ten-minute walk from Lambert’s Cove Beach, considered one of the most pristine and beautiful beaches on Martha’s Vineyard, yet only ten minutes from towns, restaurants, and shopping. Relax and dine on the two large decks in quiet privacy, surrounded by beech trees.
The interior is freshly painted and filled with comfortable, high-quality furniture. Gallery art and designer decor are several cuts above the average vacation rental. Downstairs is a front-to-back fireplaced living room, large kitchen, dining area with room for eight to ten, and full bath. Upstairs are four cozy bedrooms and a second full bath. There are hardwood floors and oversized windows throughout the house, and ceiling fans in the bedrooms (sorry, no AC). The walk-out basement has laundry facilities and a ping-pong table, and a new, spacious outdoor shower is perfect for cleaning off after the beach.
The kitchen is well equipped with a waffle maker, electric griddle, blender, coffee grinder and Cuisinart coffee brewer. In addition, there is a lobster pot, bowls and platters, salad spinner, and a full set of pots and pans – all the comforts of home.
The house is uniquely situated as it is walking distance to three swimming areas. It’s a five-minute walk to the Lambert’s Cove Beach parking lot, a residents-only private beach with miles of untouched sand dunes. Because it is open to West Tisbury residents and tenants only, it is never crowded. Sunsets on this beach are the best on the island. Your rental includes family beach passes.
Enjoy swimming in crystal clear glacial ponds? Manaquayak Preserve and Seth’s Pond are also less than ten minutes’ walk from the house. Manaquayak Preserve is one of the newest Martha’s Vineyard Land Bank properties. This twelve-acre property contains a pristine, glacier-formed kettle pond originally called Ice House Pond. It has only four parking spaces to limit its use. Seth’s Pond has a sandy beach and is popular with young children.
