New Listing: 30 Marthas Park Road, OB

Check out our new listing - an adorable three-season cottage located within the Harthaven community of Oak Bluffs...

30 Marthas Park Road, Oak Bluffs


This property has defined "Summering on the Vineyard". A romantic three season cottage on the Vineyard, well priced, in an historic community offering an association beach, tennis courts, potential boating, and a long walk or short ride to Oak Bluffs center. Isn't that the wish of many who think of a summer home on the Island? This property not only fits that description but brings along with it an incredible history...read on. Located in Harthaven the property abuts the 12th hole and pond of the Farm Neck golf course providing a pleasant vista. The community of Hart Haven was established over 100 years ago and members of its community share extensive private beaches on the Nantucket Sound, the island's only private harbor, and private tennis courts. The core of the 4 bedroom house was built in 1880 on a site at the Oak Bluffs campgrounds and was moved in 1938 to its current site. The same family has owned the property since then. The classic gingerbread architecture prevails throughout the house from the shape of the windows to the gingerbread trim. The efficient use of space is obvious everywhere and the overuse of the word charming is appropriate when describing the house. The original owner was an artist who invited his artist and performing friends to help expand the house and later to enjoy it for annual summer retreats. The arts colony that frequented the property included the late actor Jimmy Cagney, cartoonist Denys Wortman, and Thomas Hart Benton. The front door has traces of the guests hands signed with kind messages to their gracious hosts. The 1.3 acre lot will support a 1000 sf guest house and 600 sf non-living building such as a garage or studio but requires the application process for building in Oak Bluffs and review of the plans by the Association's Architectural Committee. The engineering and review for a new 5 bedroom septic system is on file. This is one of the best combinations of your dream house, charm, that word again, great amenities and loaded with history. It is a requirement of the seller that any future plans for the property incorporate the existing building.

Exclusively offered at $720,000
