Located on the westernmost point of Martha's Vineyard, Aquinnah is known for its stunning ocean views from the many coastal cliffs and bluffs. Beneath the cliffs sit Aquinnah's four sandy beaches: Philbin, Moshup, Long, and Lobsterville. You might know Aquinnah as Gay Head, but in 1997 was renamed to reflect its Wampanoag heritage. Look out as the sun sets on the famous Gay Head lighthouse from your new island home and soak up the quiet serenity that Aquinnah is known for. Scroll down to view the real estate in this truly unique island town.
This spectacular site overlooks the Vineyard Sound with breathtaking panoramic views. Offered as is, this Hutcker Design with permits in place is framed and ready to be completed. Or, start new with your design. A short deeded path leads to a private sandy beach owned by Sheriff's Meadow. Walk five minutes through dunes to this secluded peaceful shore...one of the few places on the island where the beach is growing rather than eroding. The original house on the site was designed in 1984 by celebrated modern architect Steven Holl. A seasonal home, it won prestigious awards but fell into disrepair and was torn down by the current owners. The current plans keep the exterior form and spirit of the original home but add an additional 1890 square feet of living space and provide for state of the art systems including environmentally sensitive energy efficient sustainable design. This home design of 3756 square feet of living space includes a second story room that could not be built today, an amazing roof deck as well as a wonderful deck off the living room...all with incredible views. The plans provide for an open living dining kitchen area with walls of glass to let the outside in, a breakfast nook, a spacious master suite with a separate sitting room, 3 additional bedrooms and a family room. Outside there are plans for a south facing courtyard garden (landscape design plans by Horiuchi Solien), a small detached studio/shed and a garage. Breathtaking site and superb design....A once-in-a lifetime property and a rare opportunity. (Architectural renderings courtesy of Hutker Architects).
