Four plus bedrooms with good separation provide room for all and an open common area with fireplace and direct access to an extensive deck for daily gatherings.

And then there is the best part, the walk to the water's edge to the sweeping views of the Sound and Elizabeth Islands. A special property for special owners.

Located at the end of Tom Neelon Road, in Upper Makonikey off Lambert's Cove Road. This 5 bedroom, 3.5 bath home was designed by Eleanor Pettersen, one of the last student/apprentices of Frank Lloyd Wright, along with the owners.

The decks are joined by a wide stairway gently sloping down from the carport to the lower level.

Where time stood still - A farm with farm house, guesthouse, barn and other out-building that has been captured in a time capsule representing the Vineyard as it was generations ago. The buildings and surrounding farm land have been passionately restored, enjoyed and maintained. The original site of Norton Farm in West Tisbury, the farmhouse, barn, and two additional buildings were originally built around 1800 when it was part of the natural landscape of the Island. The farm was then purchased by the current owner, who despite the deteriorated condition of the buildings, became totally enchanted by the setting and landscape. In the 1990's the restoration process started and was being managed by a craftsman who had restored buildings in Gettysburg. Driving along Indian Hill with its rolling fields, stables and stone walls is a treat in itself. As you follow the winding road and take the last turn you are facing a vista of rolling hills, a stand of cedar trees that look like the original site of an Andrew Wyeth painting. The buildings are perfectly located on the landscape; the tree shadows continually move as the day extends and at the back of the barn is a perfect small pond where peepers sound off in the evening. A variety of birds and other wildlife are your neighbors. A path that starts along the side of the barn leads you to the shore of Vineyard Sound. This is an exceptional property that will speak for itself and to you when you visit.
