A stunning portal into the most exquisite and unspoilt pond-front landscapes on Martha's Vineyard. The 180-degree view encompasses the fishing village of Menemsha, the long and protected Lobsterville dunes, and the backdrop of Vineyard Sound and the Elizabeth Islands. The irreplaceable water's edge location provides an intimate view of wildlife, fishing flats and memorable sunsets. Behind the house is the only fresh-water pond contiguous to the tidal Menemsha Pond; an avian magnet.
A one-half interest in adjacent 9.79-acres conservation meadows, shared with two neighbors, provides 1,800 feet of Menemsha Pond shoreline; swimming, kayaking, paddle boarding, shellfishing and shallow-water striped-bass fishing.
The 1,990-square-foot modernist house was designed in 1961 by a Prix-de-Rome winning student of Walter Gropius and is constructed entirely of old-growth, four-inch-thick, Western Red Cedar and has been lovingly restored to original condition. The upper floor 18' cathedral-ceiling, post-and-beam design has stunning water views from each room, including the en-suite bath. Oversized fireplace, in-kitchen grill with its own flue, Gaggeneau applicances and Corian showers.
The lower floor also has a fireplace and antique brick floors. Recently-installed central air and heat. Because of the sensitive location, house cannot be expanded and it is also subject to architectural covenants.
