Vineyard Landing is a gambrel-roofed shingle-style home that accommodates a large extended family. Located on the island of Martha’s Vineyard, the end of the road property is tucked in a quiet neighborhood on an inlet that wraps two sides. It is a beautiful hideaway. The home takes full advantage of its location with first and second floor living, as well as a fully finished walk-out lower level. The side of the house features a large deck that extends the full length of the house, giving the family plenty of space to enjoy the views and indoor/outdoor entertaining. The back of the house opens to a terrace with a firepit area. Stairs at the edge of the yard lead down to a private beach on the water and to an existing boat house and dock.
Inside, the main kitchen, dining, and living spaces are open to each other with an array of windows that offer views of the water and flood the space with light. A colorful cut stone fireplace with a large stained oak mantel and television above provides a focal point. A grand piano has pride of place at the base of an octagonal tower off the living room. The second floor of the tower is a covered porch off the primary bedroom. This space gives the owners a quiet, outdoor retreat with expansive views. The beautiful red cedar boards that line the walls and ceiling contribute to the serene calm. Another second-floor bedroom enjoys a private balcony. A third balcony can be accessed by all in the house via the second-floor hallway space. A coffee bar, hidden by a barn door, allows one to grab a cup of coffee or tea before heading out to the balcony. This multi-generational home has plenty of indoor and outdoor areas for family and guests to enjoy—spaces for togetherness and spaces for retreat.
