Travel up a short winding, gravel drive and arrive at a compound of shingle-clad seaside cottages positioned to take advantage of the commanding views of Vineyard Sound, the Elizabeth Islands, Gay Head Lighthouse, Menemsha Pond and the village of Menemsha. This property, once featured on the cover of Architectural Digest, dates to the 1930’s and was lovingly renovated and restored by the current owner and Joseph Dick, a well-known and respected architect on the Cape and Islands.
The main house features two bedrooms, two baths, living and dining rooms with water views, fireplace, well-appointed kitchen, outdoor rain shower, and a front porch which provides a front row seat to those magical Menemsha sunsets.
The guest house has one bedroom and bath, large, open living and dining areas, an ample kitchen, and an outdoor shower. Adjacent to the guest house is a detached, one bedroom cottage.
A cottage at the rear of the property contains an office with wide water views and a lower level space currently configured as a personal gym.
The last of the five cottages on the property is used for storage of seasonal furnishings. Expansion of the main house is possible with permitting. The property has been approved for a five bedroom septic system (see listing broker for conditions).
Mature landscaping, specimen trees and lush perennial gardens surround the property and delight the senses with vivid colors and welcoming floral scents.
A short stroll on a deeded path takes one to the historic fishing village of Menemsha, it’s seafood and craft shops and the calm waters at Menemsha Beach. A video tour of this property can be found here: https://vimeo.com/video/358902170
