TISBURY GREAT POND - a unique and highly desirable location offering both water and village access, an heirloom quality compound in a private, peaceful setting, with meadow views and gentle ocean breezes, available for the first time in over 40 years. All the benefits of waterfront living, including deeded easements to the association dock and a pristine barrier beach. Boat, sail, kayak or stand-up paddle down idyllic, pastoral, Town Cove to Tisbury Great Pond and the Atlantic Ocean barrier beach beyond. The entire property has been thoughtfully renovated over the years to create indoor and outdoor spaces to enjoy the very best of the Vineyard lifestyle. An expansive open Great Room, hardwood and tile floors, lofted ceilings and custom detail throughout create bright, airy interiors full of character and charm. The 5 bedrooms and 3 full baths, including a primary bedroom suite and a separate cottage-style guest suite with full bath, are among the carefully designed features and modern conveniences to welcome family and friends. A brick courtyard enjoys the late afternoon sun surrounded by the lilacs, hydrangeas and flowers planted to bloom throughout the season. The roof deck with built-in seating is a treasured “cocktail cockpit” equally appealing for stargazing or relaxing with a unique view of the water and surrounding countryside. A large back deck and bluestone patio faces the morning sun and the grassy path to the water and association dock, with room for al fresco dining or large gatherings. All less than half a mile to historic West Tisbury Village. Offered furnished and including a 2021 14’ MirroCraft boat with motor and 2 Acadia kayaks to enjoy the Tisbury Great Pond and deeded barrier beach access.

First Floor

The front foyer opens into the expansive Great Room with sweeping views through a wall of windows, living and dining areas, and an adjoining kitchen with hand-painted tile, propane range, new stainless refrigerator, plus pantry and laundry room access. To the right, is the privately sited west wing with a whitewashed coastal interior, a custom storage-lined hallway leads to a large bedroom with full bath and meadow views. To the left, the east wing, thoughtfully designed with spaces to enjoy as part of a festive gathering or to relax and rejuvenate, with 3 bedrooms, hardwood floors and wide windows to showcase the views. Extending the central living spaces is an entertainment area with wet bar, custom cabinetry featuring built-in refrigerator and freezer drawers, overlooking and connecting to the back deck, bluestone patio and lawns for effortless indoor/outdoor entertaining. Continuing the thoughtful floorplan is the adjacent family room with a propane fireplace accented by a hand-painted tile surround, and the beautifully designed staircase with an artisan-crafted handrail leading to the loft office or lounge, adding both additional spaces to enjoy, as well as character and charm to the interior. Down a hallway with custom cedar-lined closets and cabinetry, is the primary bedroom, with beautiful southeast views through a decorative bay window. A private door opens to a bluestone patio and the private, enclosed outdoor shower to wash the sand from your toes after your beach outings. The adjacent bath features skylights and architectural windows, a double vanity, separate tile shower and jetted tub. The east wing of the house can be configured to include the fifth bedroom, currently furnished as a sitting room, to create a 2-bedroom suite.
