Perched high on a hill extending down to Squibnocket Pond with some of the most breathtaking views of the Atlantic Ocean one can find on the Vineyard, this antique home known to many as the Hilly Mayhew house has all the character and charm of an 18th century Vineyard farmhouse with its simple but functional floor plan which includes a center chimney fireplace, front parlor room, birthing room now functioning as a small office, painted floors, granite foundation and old stone walls that border the property. In 1928 Vaclav Vytlacil, a world renown painter and writer acquired this property adding a 500 sq. ft. studio where he spent the remainder of his life painting hundreds of seascapes and harbor scenes of the Vineyard, many of which can still be found in galleries here as well as around the world. More recently, several upgrades have been made to this property including a new well and 4 bedroom septic system in 2012 along with updated 1st floor bedroom, kitchen, new bath and replacement of some of the older windows. With Squibnocket Beach at your doorstep why not be the next family to assume stewardship of this exceptionally relevant property.
