This historic farmhouse is surrounded by woods, fields, stone walls and the Cedar Tree Neck Sanctuary, while affording unique private access to the North Shore Beach on Vineyard Sound and a highly-coveted key to Hancock Beach on the ocean in Chilmark. It combines the peace and quiet of West Tisbury with quick access to Vineyard Haven and is five minutes from the up-island market on State Road. The serenity of this spacious 5 bedroom, 2 bath home once owned by Vineyard Gazette editor, Henry Beetle Hough, is a great getaway for couples, families and reunions. Enjoy the peacefulness of your morning coffee on the small deck overlooking a Vineyard garden or grill up the catch of the day among friends and entertain until the stars come out on the large deck off the dining room and kitchen. Spend the morning walking the nearby marked trails of Cedar Tree Neck Sanctuary and the afternoon swimming in the Sound or the Ocean. Then wash off the salt water in the outdoor shower enclosure just out the back door. In the living room, cozy up with a good book by the fireplace or enjoy a movie on a rainy Vineyard day. The first floor bath has a shower and the upstairs bath has an old-fashioned claw-foot tub. Dogs are welcome and will enjoy the large yard which is ideal for lawn games. Come relax at this authentic Vineyard escape!
