This property is an oasis of privacy and light in the heart of Vineyard Haven. Set back from the road it is surrounded by the mature landscaping of firs, holly and birch. Not your cookie cutter home, it was custom-designed and built in 2006 by a master carpenter from Boston, with an open floor plan and the highest of quality materials throughout. The utilization of space and light expands the house well beyond the actual size. The common space flows to the master bedroom and the guest wing beyond to a second floor office perched among the tree tops which offers inspiration to whatever the task. It is a refreshing approach to contemporary living in a traditional environment. Now to the location which is ideal....just a short walk to town, the library, the ferry and Owen Park beach. The property has been rented on a weekly and nightly basis at airbnb.com, a unique rental approach as unique as the property. A few guest quotes follow: "Excellent location - walking distance from the ferry, beautiful setting"..."A perfect spot to enjoy the friendly Vineyard vibe".... "This home is perfect - both energizing and peaceful"..." You'll need a good reason to leave. Each window frames a thoughtful view of trees and light and sky alone"....We don't have to say it, the guests have said it for us.
FIRST FLOOR DESCRIPTIONUpon entering the house, the open space living area at the front of the house provides a bay for dining to the right and a living room with a raised custom stone fireplace which is the focal point. The openness continues into the kitchen that allows you to be with your guests while getting dinner. The magnificent red wood Brazilian jatoba floors permeate throughout the house complementing the unique architecture. The master bedroom suite beyond has a wall of windows looking out to the private yard and specimen plantings. The master bath features a walk in shower, a separate deep tub and Vermont slate walls. The guest wing with separate entrance, is large enough for bedroom space and a charming sitting area.
